Health and Wellbeing
A new app called Good Thinking is designed to boost wellbeing and resilience to stress, and it's available free to Londoners.
The NHS-approved service has been developed by the Foundation for Postive Mental Health to help those who are experiencing common mental wellbeing concerns and are looking to improve their concentration and confidence in all walks of life.
Feeling Good offers audio programmes centred around Positive Mental Training for adults and for teens. The app is based on a Swedish Olympic sports performance programme, which was adapted to boost mental health and resilience. Feeling Good’s research in the NHS shows that this can help recovery from anxiety and depression, helping you let go of worries, cope better with stress, and sleep better.
