Mobile apps have taken a crucial place nowadays in our everyday lives. People spend 85 percent of their time on smartphones in apps and have been found to spend monthly 37 hours and 28 minutes in the fourth-quarter 2014, according to a Nielson analysis. Because of this tremendous amount of time spent on mobile apps, when used correctly they have the potential to impact your life and mood for the better in several ways.

Relaxation

It happens to everyone: stressful days, trouble falling asleep, difficult bosses, etc.. that can add stress to your life and make it difficult to relax. We all deserve to find a little bit of peace of mind, and meditation is one way proven successful at reducing the stress. In order to master the sometimes seeming dark art of relaxing and sleeping, I recommend Calm. Calm provides seven guided sessions. You can choose the duration of your session (according to your free time): meditation sessions in Calm can go from 2 to 20 minutes. Also, you can choose (according to your preferences) what background sound relaxes you the most while meditating: beaches, pouring rain etc. With mobile apps such as Calm, you will be in an excellent mood, and be cheered up in few minutes wherever you are!

Motivation

Smartphones can give you some motivation and energy wherever you are: they are nearby when we eat to remind us to make healthy choices and they can also represent the perfect private coach. Indeed, if you can’t find the time or motivation to make it to the gym, you should use MotionTraxx. This personal training app will help you to get rid of the stress inside of you, get your body in shape and more important, it will considerably motivate you with very energetic music perfectly synced to your workout. With this mobile app, your mood will always be good, you will always feel encouraged and will finally find some time for your own needs.

Escape

We all need some escapism in our life – to free our minds from work or even to forget about our problems even if that won’t entirely make them disappear. To do so, traveling can be a good option, but a bit pricey. In order to escape for free, I recommend using mobile apps such as Pandora. Studies regarding music have shown that it represents a crucial tool that regulate people’s mood, and that it can be used to activate memories, moods, and emotions. A music app that can definitely help you to escape is, and Pandora is an effortless music app that will put every kind of music at your fingertips and help you stay (or be) in a good mood all day.

Laughter

If you are not in a good mood, or you just need a big laugh, you are lucky if you can call a friend to cheer you up. If that doesn’t work or isn’t an option, you can use mobile apps such as Headliner. This amusing mobile app allows users to upload funny news videos. With Headliner, you will be able to follow the news in a funny way, to share your opinion on the news in a hilarious way, and maybe find yourself with many people following you. The most important is to share anything related to news that can make you laugh or just make you feel happy. As it has been proved several times, laughing is something healthy. According to Steve Wilson, MA, CSP, psychologist and laugh therapist: “if people can get more laughter in their lives, they are a lot better off and they might be healthier too.” In any case, for the skeptical ones, even if you think that laughing is not something that will help you feel better, we can all agree that it certainly isn’t hurting!

We live in a world where mobile apps regulate (if not accelerate) the pace of our lives and work. Therefore, it seems normal that they also help us recover from all that quickening by giving us a way to brighten our moods.
