The Best Apps and Gadgets to Increase Your Health and Well-being

There are SO many apps on the market that are designed to increase your health and well-being, but not all apps are created equally.  While writing The Future of Happiness, I tested more than 400 apps and gadgets and have compiled my absolute favorites for you in the S.T.A.G.E Framework Guide. Download now and start using technology to elevate your mindset.

The S.T.A.G.E. Framework

Happify's S.T.A.G.E. framework helps you to elevate your mindset by building five key happiness skills: Savor, Thank, Aspire, Give, and Empathize. How do you develop these skillsets? Technology can be an incredible tool to help you tune in to your mind and body.  
  • Savor: The practice of being mindful and noticing the good stuff around you, taking the extra time to prolong and intensify your enjoyment of the moment, making a pleasurable experience last for as long as possible.
  • Thank: Identifying and appreciating the things people do for us fills us with optimism and self-confidence.
  • Aspire: Feeling hopeful, having a sense of purpose, and being optimistic.
  • Give: Being kind not only makes us feel less stressed, isolated, and angry, but it also makes us feel considerably happier, more connected with the world, and more open to new experiences.
  • Empathize: The ability to care about others, to imagine and understand the thoughts, behaviors, or ideas of others, including those different from ourselves.

How to use the S.T.A.G.E. Framework

While it's tempting to want to try all of these incredible apps, I strongly encourage you to select one skillset and one app to try for 21 days.  Technology is merely a tool to help you; it's a means to an end.  So put tech to work for you and track how much progress you see over that period of time.
