Fika is a health technology business on a mission to mainstream emotional fitness. Fika recognises that people have been proactive in ‘looking after’ their physical fitness but the same attention has not been devoted to ‘emotional fitness.’ Fika is working with leading academics and UK universities to create an app to re-address this imbalance by encouraging users to regularly exercise their emotions. The Fika app is inspired by positive psychology and adopts a proactive approach to mental well-being, providing content led 5-10-minute emotional exercises that are completed individually or with others. Find out more information.
The PhD research project will explore the psychological and behavioural responses associated with the use of positive psychology interventions delivered through the Fika app.
