Using Smartphones for Good: Working Towards Wellbeing

We can’t make smart phones go away, they are far too useful. So we probably should try to find ways to use them for good. Evidence has shown that photo scrolling can have a mood lifting effect.  

Increasing Physical Activity: Working Towards Wellbeing

Physical activity is intentional activity that involves moving our body and working our muscles. In other words, it doesn’t only mean aerobic exercise, playing sport or going to the gym. Any little bit of extra physical activity you can do in a day is beneficial to your physical and emotional wellbeing.

Mood Monitoring: Working Towards Wellbeing

Mood monitoring or mood tracking is exactly what the name suggests – keeping a record of your moods over time. Keeping track of our moods can help to better understand our emotions and understand what may trigger changes in mood.
