Happiness, Pursuit of happiness, tracked in a free smartphone app

 

Track your happiness every day for free

Something strong to meditate on today is what we do in our life in daily basis; our habits.. where our mind is set at each moment, and how happy or unhappy it can make us… goes along very well with the habits of happiness as seen by Matthew Ricard, known as the happiest man in the world

Matthew A Killingsworth has developed a very curious app for smartphones.

Everywhere people are attached so much to their cell phones, busy into games, calls, books, calendars, music, videos.

I came across this website where you can track your happiness.. The app first takes some demographics from you, then on the phone sends you messages with questions (kind of surveys or psychology test) you have to answer as sincere and soon possible.. then the app sends you a report on how happy you are, in comparison to the focus you have in your activity at that time, in the amount of sleep you have, in productivity aspects, and several other parameters.

A “happiness report”, a graphic, appears once you have answered the questions, you may see what is the state of your mind, whether it is on task or not, and you are asked if you are thinking about something happy, unhappy, or neutral.

Matthew is a PhD student in Dr. Dan Gilbert’s psychology lab in Harvard. They have compiled information from 2,250 volunteer app users and found that:

  • People are lost in thought nearly as often as they are focused on the present moment and
  • This “non-present” thinking causes them to be unhappy.

46.9% of the time the participants’ minds were not on their present tasks and these wandering thoughts were unpleasant.

When reporting on the activity, participants were given a choice of 22 general activities, which included working, resting, having sex, etc.

In all but one activity (having sex), participants reported that their minds wandered at least 30% of the time.

You will find the app here> www.trackyourhappiness.org
