iPhone Apps and Happiness

By July 11, 2009

Follow me on:

I've been trying out more and more iPhone applications lately. This is partly because I have one of the new iPhone 3Gs, and love using it, and partly because I just keep discovering really great iPhone apps.

One that I'd like to bring to your attention is the Live Happy iPhone application. I love it because it brings together several things that I have found to be useful for cultivating optimism, gratitude, resilience and a strong social circle, among other things. And I really love it because it helps you take action in different areas in your life, and create habits that promote these good things. It also supplies some nice research on positive psychology.

Here's a more detailed review of the Live Happy iPhone Application. You'll find more details about the app, as well as an opportunity to add your own review, if you've experienced the application yourself! (What do you like about it? What don't you like? What do other readers think?)

I'd also like to hear about your favorite iPhone applications for stress relief. What are they? How have they helped you? Read what others recommend, and add your best recommendations!

Finally, for those who don't have iPhones, here are some happiness-promoting resources you can use--for free, of course!--from this site. Enjoy, and make today the beginning of the happiest, most satisfying phase of your life yet.

Thanks for the nice review on Live Happy. For those w/o iPhones, we have an online public gratitude journal – Gratitude Stream. You can find people using it from literally around the world, getting benefits from expressing gratitude or simply enjoying what others add. You can check it out at http://www.SignalPatterns.com/gratitude

Thanks, David. I didn’t even know about Gratitude Stream, but I think it’s a great idea! I’m sure it’s helping a lot of people.
