We all have times in our lives when we get a little down in the dumps and sadly, for many among us, it's at this time of year that many suffer most. Christmas for many is a time of reflection for things like the mistakes we've made, the loss of friends or family members or relationship problems. That is why making resolutions at New Year can be such an important spur in the decision to change your life and get your mental house in order. If your resolution is to improve your state of mind then an app like Get Happy could well be a great place to start. Developed by a leading clinical psychologist, this health and wellness application gives you proven tips and motivational techniques to deal with painful thoughts and lead you forward to tackle the world again.
While Get Happy - ways to increase your happiness" doesn't suggest to be quite the same as professional psychiatric advice it does offer sensible tips and techniques to improve your way of life. It was developed by clinical psychologist Dr Lisa Patterson-Kane and based on the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy concept.

The tips are organized based on four pillars of happiness -relationships, leisure, personal growth and wrk and education - and tips are prioritized based on the areas of your life that are in need of most improvement. Rather than a strict regime, Get Happy is more of a self-help tool that hopes to assist people in their day-today lives.
