Finding a balance between how much we rely on our Smart phones these days and carving out time to just be with ourselves and others can be tricky. There are some useful resources out there that you can use on your Smart phone to help you meet your goal to find increased emotional well being. I use some of them personally and know others who also use them. A word of caution though – don’t solely use these programs to help yourself feel better. Continue to reach out to others for help and support. Until next time!
Encontrando un balance entre cuanto usamos nuestros telefonos inteligentes hoy dia y buscando tiempo para estar solo/a y presentes con otros puede ser dificil. Hay various recursos que existen que uno puede usar en su telefono inteligente para alcanzar su meta para encontrar un mejor bienestar emocional. Algunos uso personalmente y conozco otros que tambien los utilizan. Sin embargo – uno no debe solamente usar estos programas para hacerse sentir mejor. Debemos seguir conectando con otras personas para recibir ayuda y apoyo. Hasta la proxima!
