Apps to improve mental health
Apps to improve mental health
Mental health is one of the most talked about topics in the area of wellness today. The impact that the covid19 pandemic had (and still has) on our lives, especially at work, drew attention to this very pertinent topic.
In Portugal, as in many other countries, it was decreed telework mandatory in order to minimize the transmission of the disease. This change greatly affected the mental health of the population - many families found themselves with no hands to measure with working after hours, difficulty in establishing a routine, taking care of the house, taking care of the children all day and even supervise your distance learning. They quickly began to feel consequences such as stress, anxiety, tiredness, among others.
In the last two articles, Digiplanet talked about work stress and how to deal with it. Now we want to suggest applications to improve the mental health of workers (and not only) and help maintain productivity levels in a healthy way !
The Happify application was developed based on the studies of several scientists and experts in the field of psychology. Its slogan is “Against stress and worry” and the aim is to increase users' level of happiness. Showing the effectiveness of the app, they claim that 86% of people who use it regularly confirm that they feel better. Happify offers games, tasks and activities like guided meditation!
We've covered the Pomodoro method several times in our articles. It is one of the most used productivity techniques around the world with proven results. The goal is to stay focused for 25 minutes and take a break for 5 minutes. After 4 cycles, take a longer break of 30 minutes. You will notice that during work periods, you have big spikes in concentration. The Pomodoro Timer Lite app timers your work and break times, being possible to customize them according to different work rhythms.
Headspace is one of the most popular apps to help you get started in meditation and increase concentration levels. The journey starts with small exercises focused on breathing, anxiety, focus and sleep using meditations that can even be done during runs and walks. This app was created by Andy Puddicombe, who was a Buddhist monk for 10 years and decided to apply the techniques of Buddhism in the world of technology.
Stoic is an application that will help you deal with stress, based on the principles of Stoicism. It tracks the user's mental health, records changes in mood and state of mind and offers meditation and reflection exercises. With this app, you can also build your personalized routine to promote your organization and reflection on your day. Along the way with Stoic, many suggestions and tips are given that will greatly improve your mental health and help you to be a happier person.
