Wellbeing & How to Improve It - Mental Fitness: Converge International - Page 26



Over time we intend to
continue to monitor
research to evolve and
update the app.
In addition to the weather and the facial icon, we use
an umbrella to show the level of Mental Fitness that has
been assessed through our tool. This shows an umbrella
which is larger or smaller depending on the levels
achieved in each of the 11 different areas we measure
within the Body, Mind, Spirit and Community categories.
a) Learn more about the drivers of wellbeing (through tips,
articles and videos)
We use this metaphor for a number of reasons:
d) Set reminders to do particular activities and track
progress towards goals
1. We want to emphasise that Life Stress can happen to
anyone and can’t easily be controlled
2. However, people do have some measure of control
over their protection from the weather (the umbrella)
through setting goals and changing the activities they
incorporate into their daily life
3. But no-one can expect an umbrella to be their sole
protection from a huge storm – in those cases they
need to seek help beyond their own resources.
The Converge Mental Fitness App provides individuals

and a snapshot of how effectively they use activities to
boost wellbeing. Additionally, the app then also provides
users with the opportunity to:

b) Set goals for undertaking new activities to boost
wellbeing
c) Engage with regular quizzes that encourage check-ins
on activities
e) Undertake the full Wellbeing Assessment more than
once (ideally about every three months) and see
progress over time
f) Use a mood tracker to gauge how their subjective
experience of wellbeing changes on a regular basis
g) Get support and help from a professional with any
aspect of their wellbeing – including immediate
and/or critical support when wellbeing is very low.
Alternatively, when wellbeing is normal, we can
provide coaching resources/activities to help to
change habits and mindsets.
