The Feeling Good App
The Feeling Good App contains a number of different audio programmes for recovery, everyday relaxation & wellbeing.
Good feelings make your mind function better, improving focus & concentration, making it extremely helpful for your daily life. Good feelings also help you bounce forward from setbacks and overcome challenges in your life. This is resilience, and with repetitive listening, resilience & wellbeing will grow.
Supported by Lothian NHS, the app is free to download and there are no ongoing subscriptions to pay.
