If you're prone to thinking negatively, a change in mindset could lead the way to a happier life. This app encourages you to make that change through positive affirmations.

6. LifeCharge, (free, iOS)

If meditation isn't for you, simply making a note of the good and bad things that happen throughout your day might be a more beneficial option. LifeCharge lets you "see your life at a glance" by logging the positive and negative events you encounter and charting them on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. It's a great reminder of happy moments you may have forgotten and encourages reflection on achievements.
