Get Happy

It’s the human condition: We spend our lives in pursuit of happiness with no guide or direction as to what will fulfill us spiritually. We waste time on shallow pleasures, stumbling blindly towards a suggestion of joy, but lacking the means to even comprehend our own needs.

Clearly, this is a job for the iPhone.

Track Your Happiness (via PSFK) is an iPhone app that spot-checks your general well-being at random points throughout the day and after a few months, produces a fully rounded assessment of your emotional hot spots. You may discover you’re fairly reliably buzzed a few hours after a gym visit. After a six-hour Twilight Zone marathon? Not so much.

Use it right, and it might just lead you to a more balanced and fulfilling life…provided you can stop playing Tetris long enough to work it out.
