Awakening Joy Mobile App
Awakening Joy Mobile App
The app is based on the book Awakening Joy by James Baraz and Shoshana 
Alexander. Bill Gates said it perfectly when he recommended the book: "...even 
if you never read anything in this genre, this book is one you should try."



Daily Exercises

The app suggests daily exercises that help you towards greater well-being. Go through the themes step by step or select your mood to get the exercise relevant to how you are feeling right now. Turn on reminders to remember the exercise throughout the day.

Create Posters

Choose a photo, select one of the Awakening Joy quotes or type your own words. Or just tap on “Surprise Me!” and let the app automatically create a personalized poster for you. Posters are a great way to keep your journal.



10 Steps. 95 Exercises. 125 Highlights

Ten steps contain 95 experiential exercises and 125 highlights that help you work on Intention, Mindfulness, Gratitude, Resilience, Integrity, Letting Go, Loving Ourselves, Loving Others, Compassion and Simply Being.

The Map of Joy

The Map of Joy lets you visually evaluate your strengths by dragging markers representing the 10 steps and their qualities. The app uses this data to suggest appropriate daily exercises. For example, if you are less confident in Loving Yourself, the app will more frequently suggest daily exercises from the step Loving Yourself.
