uMore launches self-care activities on iOS
uMore launches the first collection of self-care activities designed to help users take action to improve their personal well-being. Each self-care activity is based on scientific evidence and fosters health-promoting abilities.
Initial user feedback from the first self-care activities in-app has revealed that the activities have proved helpful to the user to identify stress, better understand how they feel, and manage their stress response. Overall, users who engage more frequently with activities are less prone to exhibit high-stress levels.
New activities will continue to be released on the uMore app, following the feedback from the activities featured in this paper.
How do the uMore self-care activities work?
The uMore self-care activities are designed to help users learn about their mental well-being, manage the effects of distress as it arises, and promote positive behaviors that are good for our health.
They are all based on real science and evidence from psychological research. There are activities based on mindfulness meditations, cognitive behavioral therapy, gratitude, relationship exercises, and many more!
Each one has a start and a finish, interactively asking meaningful questions throughout the activity. Every activity has a different goal in mind, helping users identify the health-promoting abilities that they want to strengthen.
Self-care is not a substitute for receiving help from a medical professional. uMore’s self-care activities can be used to learn more about and manage our mental health, but they are not a form of therapy. If you feel your mental health is in need of or could benefit from the help of a clinician, contact your local healthcare center today. The uMore app also features a database of telephone helplines to contact in the case of significant mental distress.
