Truth: Nobody’s perfect. We all experience bouts of stress, irritability, insecurity, exhaustion and unhappiness from time to time, and we all have different ways of dealing with it. Some head straight to the gym, opting to sweat their worries away. Others jump in the bathtub for some R&R. Some meditate.
Now, there’s an app that can help you bring a little bit of Zen and clarity back into your life. Mindsail “offers access to top experts—including clinical psychologists, best-sell authors and well-renowned keynote speakers—anytime, anywhere to help you tackle whatever is emotionally weighing you down.”
The app has over 800 bite-sized coaching sessions and daily “Moodboosts” that are designed to give you the guidance and tools you need to change behaviors and improve your emotional wellbeing. Want to break old relationship patterns? Having trouble sleeping? Nervous about a work meeting? Mindsail has you covered.
“Mindsail aims to address a growing range of mental wellness issues that prevent many of us from moving forward in our lives. We want to redefine the way people approach personal growth by taking away the stigma and barriers that surround most self-help methods,” said co-founder and COO Elyse Colen.
Users can also track their progress and star their favorite sessions to stay on top of their habits and behaviors.
The app was co-founded by Lauren Wallack and Elyse Colen, who explained how the app came about. “We’ve seen so many of our friends and peers struggling with the same issues – they want to find more meaning in their jobs, they want to have better relationships or simply be happier. Through technology, we’re now able to offer unprecedented direct access to new perspectives and tools that can transform your life, without being mediated by a middleman.”
Long term, their goal is to take away the stigma and barriers that surround most self-help methods and get users emotionally fit the same way fitness apps and trackers transformed their physical health.
While anyone can benefit from Mindsail, it’s specifically targeted at millennials, who are entrepreneurial, independent and tech savvy, but also are the most stressed-out generation, according to The American Psychological Association.
