List of apps that improve mood and health

Over the years, I have received many requests for recommendations for books and tools that may help to improve mood and overall health. Many folks have asked me to create a list of apps that improve mood and health.

In a recent post, we recognized that there has been a fair amount of (well-founded) criticism regarding the overuse of our cellphones.

We are all aware of the endless steam of apps that distract us, and drain our time.

Yet, we also noted that there are hundreds – if not thousands – of apps that aim to improve our general sense of well-being, including our emotional, physical, mental and even spiritual health.

In that previous post, we also discussed how fitness apps can provide a great way to turn any room into a home-based gym.

It’s like having a personal trainer, in our (sweaty) pockets!

But what about improving out mood? Are there any apps that have been designed to help us to relieve depression or anxiety? How about help us to cope with overall stress?

Yes, of course!

I have spent years searching for and testing dozens of apps.

At long last, I have compiled a list of apps that improve mood and health.

Without further adieu, here it is:

    Rocking share Denise! I love too how you note; these tools can be the first step, the nudge, the little push that moves you in the right direction for raising your energy and boosting your mood and improving your mental health. Folks are so resistant to working with professionals sometimes. So many fears aka mental blocks. But when you baby step it with an app, you tend to open up.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

      Thank you so much for another awesome comment, Ryan! Yes, these apps are terrific tools, and can help us to either take that first step, or simply stay engaged in self-care. And… one of my reasons for writing this blog (including the images, gentle humor, and conversational tone) is with the goal of easing folks into warming up to mental health professionals. I am so glad that you enjoyed this post! Stay tuned… Cheers!😎
