One way to fight depression is to engage in simple activities to promote healthy habit building. This is the idea behind SuperBetter. The simple tasks in the app are transformed into a game to draw on the skilled techniques you use when you play games to promote optimistic feelings. The only requirement is that you remain honest with yourself to avoid cheating the system and yourself.
SuperBetter is an app that can be used to overcome anxiety, deal with chronic pain, heal from physical pain, or bounce back from post-traumatic stress. You determine why you should use it. Even if you don’t know it, when you play games you use courage, creativity, determination, and optimism — this is how living gamefully can improve your life. Inspiration for SuperBetter stems from results in two clinical trials.
“Even if you don’t know it, when you play games you use courage, creativity, determination, and optimism — this is how living gamefully can improve your life.“
Whether you’re attempting to fight symptoms of anxiety or depression, recover from physical pain, or deal with post-traumatic stress, SuperBetter may be able to help. The games can also serve as a welcome distraction if recently you’ve gone through a difficult life challenge such as divorce, loss, or unemployment.
While some apps are released right after development, SuperBetter was tested in two clinical trials before it was released to the public. The clinical trial in Pennsylvania found a reduction in depression and/or anxiety and increase in positive emotions and habits after 30 days of gameplay. Hospitals in Ohio found SuperBetter improved mood by decreasing feelings of suffering and strengthens family relationships during rehabilitation.
