Many people see mobile phones, tablets, and all things technological as the opposite of what our brains need to have a healthy mind. There are numerous studies that show the negative impacts that too much screen time can have on our brain health as well as our mental well-being. But with more and more focus on our brain health and the ever-expanding reach of the app store, you can now find a great range of applications that will help train your brain in many different ways. Here are a few of our favorites.

Memorado Brain Training Games

Available on Android and iOS (Free), Memorado includes brain games that will not only challenge your memory but increase cognitive development. By setting yourself goals, the app will focus on where you want to develop. It will create a personalized training plan and test you regularly. Created by scientists it’s easy to see why they have over one millions users in 39 countries.

Happier

Available on Android and iOS (Free), another app that has reached its one million user mark is Happier. The app is designed to encourage and guide its users to feel grateful for the things they have in their life. The science: having more gratitude and less thanklessness can increase your internal optimism, be more rested, increase your creativity, and feel less stress.

Fabulous: Motivate Me

Available on Android and iOS ($9.99/month, $95.99/year). Based on science, Fabulous boasts what many of us are searching for: the ability to incorporate healthy rituals into our daily routine that can improve not just our mental health, brain function, and wellness but can also improve our overall fitness and wellbeing. No wonder it has won awards on both IOS and Google Play stores.

Brain.fm

Available on Android and iOS ($6.99 for 1 month, $15.99 for 3 months, $49.99 for 1 year) Brain.fm really believes they have the secret formula – enough so that they patented it. By listening for 15 minutes per day, the music they use can guide your brain into being more focused and productive, facilitating you to achieve the tasks ahead with a clearer mind.

Streaks

Available on iOS ($4.99), Streaks is designed to appeal to our competitive nature. The idea is simple. Think of up to 12 things you want to change in your day, it could be stopping smoking, drinking more water, meditation, reading, etc. And every day that you complete it tap the app and gain a streak. But miss a day and the counter resets. The science is rudimentary and plays on our competitiveness, fear of loss and the fact that if an action is repeated enough times it will become a habit. But just because it’s basic doesn’t mean it’s not effective. Using streaks can really help you train your brain into a new routine.

So, as you can see, apps are not all bad for us. There are many ways of using them to help us improve our brain health and in turn, our lives.
