Best 8 apps and gadgets to improve your mental health

The mental health tech to help you keep you calm and carry on

There are myriad ways that tech can be used to benefit mental health – from apps focusing on tracking your mood and building emotional resilience, to podcasts on mindfulness (and the best way to listen to them), and even gadgets to help you sleep more easily.

But with so many choices out there, how to know which does what?

Future London rounds up the best available right now.

Amazon Echo Buds

If you find listening to podcasts is helpful when it comes to your mental wellbeing, then you might consider these wireless earbuds which feature Bose’s noise-cancelling tech and hands-free Alexa assistance.

Calm is one of the top mindfulness apps around, with bite-sized lessons that teach you how to meditate, along with relaxing nature scenes to aid relaxing or working.

It transmits weak electrical currents into the brain, whilst the accompanying app uses behavioural therapy to encourage new behaviours.

Moleskine smart writing set

Many people report that journaling is a helpful wellbeing activity, particularly when it comes to assessing the things you’re thankful for.

Moleskine’s digital notebook connects with a special app so that you can jot your thoughts down anywhere.

Moodrise

Launched last year, wellness app Moodrise features positive content, focused on six popular mood states, such as confidence, focus and happiness.

The idea is that people use the content to enhance their emotional resilience, helping them to manage their mental wellbeing.

Dodow Relaxation and Sleep Aid Light ​

If you sometimes struggle to fall asleep, this little gadget aims to help you drift off more easily by encouraging you to breathe alongside the delicate light pulses.

The device turns off after 20 minutes, hopefully enough time to help you doze off.

The Mindful Podcast

For mindful meditations and practices, look no further than the Mindful Podcast.

Monthly episodes cover concepts such as asking for help and reflecting on values to help you concentrate on the moment at hand.

Elevate

This brain-training app is celebrated for its bite-sized games which help you to improve your focus and boost your productivity.

As you train the program will adjust to your skills. You can measure your performance and compare to others.
