the world is finally waking up to the idea that taking care of the mind is the single most important habit to cultivate in life
London, UK (PRWEB) April 27, 2015
Mindlogr (http://www.mindlogr.com) is tackling the tricky topic of good mental health with the launch of its new guided log format, written by expert authors and designed to help users overcome their own stressful thoughts by providing thought provoking questions for users to answer on recorded video.
Good mental health is a hot topic these days together with better well being, mindfulness and stress management. It seems that the world is finally waking up to the idea that taking care of the mind is the single most important habit to cultivate in life.
In many ways the success of projects like Headspace, and Happify prove that people are looking for solutions to help them self improve and much of this has been spurred on as a result of the mainstream interest in lifelogging via wearable technology.
The introduction of the new Apple Watch product is evidence enough that life logging is becoming an everyday activity and soon this will transfer onto how we can improve mental health using technology.
Mindlogr is one of these sites which has just launched a new guided section to their private vlogging platform. Having grown organically for 2 years, the site has mostly been about free form video logbooks and users generally subscribe to record videos in their own topics.
Through surveys and research Mindlogr discovered that a vast number of people wanted to start vlogging in private but were unskilled in how to talk to camera and what topics to talk about. It is not dissimilar to beginners in meditation who, in order to learn meditation, would join groups in guided meditations where a trainer talks them through the meditation process.
The new guided log section works in a similar manner and a variety of topics and categories will be covered. These guides will help users to talk around a specific point or topic in order to get their thinking from point A to point B and hopefully reach a resolution.
Mindlogr uses private vlogging as a mechanism for users to express their private thoughts without judgement, allowing people to be themselves and release all the mental stress they have in their lives. By providing additional guides to the platform, Mindlogr is hoping to introduce vlogging to a whole new audience of users who need guidance to get started on their own mental wellbeing.
Digital health and digital wellbeing is one of the talking points that is raising a lot of interest because the problems within it are so vast yet hardly any digital solutions have been created to help address the problems. Very public deaths of people (like Robin Williams) reported to have depression or mental health issues has brought mental health into the discussion.
Mindlogr will use this new guided log format as a platform to provide users with access to therapies which they might not have experienced before, and to give psychotherapists a way to reach out to the millions of people who need their help but cannot afford it.
