When thinking and behavior are changed as with Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), research indicates that the brain is effectively rewired (Kumariet et al, 2017). Brain scans reveal that the therapeutic effects of CBT rival or exceed some drug treatments (O'Neil, J. et al., 2013). Your therAPPist is specifically designed with evidence-based practices like CBT. The hope is to support biological brain changes that make feeling happier easier and more accessible.
Glial cells make up almost 90% of our brain and affect synaptic plasticity (Wang, F. et al., 2016). Plasticity is the ability to change the brain. Synapses are the nerve fibers that allow for the electrical and chemical communication in the brain. These are some of the wires in brain rewiring.
Lab mice grafted with human glia were smarter in learning and memory tasks compared to normal lab mice (Han et al., 2013). This means that we have these super cells that can adapt and change through how we direct our attention. Your therAPPist has considered the importance of thought and brain biology in the construction of our mobile application.
Brain scans indicate that mindfulness training and meditation can change the white matter (which is in part composed of glial cells) in the brain, improving connectivity and quality (Posner, M. et al, 2014). By giving access to specific, short meditations, Brain hAPPy aims to provide easy access to integrating daily mindfulness and meditation.
E=MC2 (thank you Einstein) and energy follows thought (Lipton B., 2015). To this idea, whatever we put energy into is the matter we will make in ourselves and in our lives. Brain hAPPy created the scheduled brain reprogramming repetition in Your therAPPist to help in positive thought direction, toward your highest and best life.
Brain hAPPY honors the path carved in mindfulness, meditation, cognitive behavior therapy, positive affirmations, yoga and other disciplinces that taught us to change our mind to change our life. Brain hAPPY celebrates these disciplines in our mobile application Your therAPPist.
