Whats new this week
This week we released the Glitterbug Galvanize app. It’s our brand new app and our first venture into lifestyle or motivational apps. Galvanize is a casual motivation app.
Galvanize is all about feeling better about yourself.
A casual motivation app
Galvanize a casual motivation app which means that there are no nagging
reminders, annoying push messages or updates on your progress. We find that those kind of techniques, while useful for some
people, do not suit everyone. One size does not fit all. Personally, I like to get ideas and suggestions for things that can
make me feel better without updates which make me feel guilty on those days that do not feel like doing the tasks.
We wanted something helpful but kinder and more gentle and that’s why we created Galvanize.
So, what exactly is casual motivation?
Casual motivation means that you are in control. Instead of adhering to a regimented schedule or when to do what, you decide
to take part when you want to. It can often be counter productive to be nagged about doing things we don’t feel up to.
Galvanize works like this – when you feel like you want to tune in, when you need suggestions, ideas or something, just
something to make you feel better, open the app, choose a topic and begin.
Topics include suggestions to make you feel happier, more energized, more social, comforted, more community focused, more aware, more upbeat, more relaxed.
How does Galvanize work?
This free app uses the premises of Cognitive behavioral therapy to provide motivation, lifestyle choices and practical suggestions.
Galvanize starts with a screen showing images and each image has a topic relating to how you want to feel or what you would like to
Examples of these are first steps – things to do when you don’t feel like you want to get out of bed in the morning, energize –
activities which will increase your energy levels, give back – ideas for things you can do to help other people.
There are many more topics.
When you click on a topic, you will get a suggestion for an activity which you can do to help you get closer to your goal, whatever
that may be.
Simply tap the next button at the bottom of the screen to see the next idea. Read through the ideas or return to the screen to
choose another topic.
