After logging in, you can start to explore all of My Possible Self’s features. You will see the main homepage, which contains some navigation options, mood tracking, the lifestyle questionnaire, blogs and quotes.
At the bottom of the page in the app, or the top of the page in the desktop programme, you’ll notice a set of icons. You can navigate back to the homepage at any time by clicking the house icon in the app, or, if you’re using a desktop, the My Possible Self logo.
Take the lifestyle questionnaire
A good place to start at is our questionnaire. This will help you to decide which areas of your life you may want to focus on improving. To start the questionnaire, tap the tile on the homepage that reads ‘take the lifestyle quiz for recommendations’.
The questionnaire takes just a few minutes to complete. Based on your responses, you’ll be given some suggestions of health and lifestyle areas to work on.
You will find the mood tracker in the homepage of the app. Once you open the mood tracker, you will see several moods to choose from. Once you have selected a mood, you will be prompted to dig a little deeper into your current state. The app will then present various questions to help enhance your self-awareness. These include the following:
- How are you feeling?
- What are you doing?
- Who are you with?
- Where are you?
- Would you like to elaborate on what is happening?
Along with your typed answers, you can attach images to your response. Once you have completed this, you will then see your mood entry on the homepage of the app, within the mood history.
Our guided series are designed to help you learn new skills and techniques for taking control of your thoughts and feelings, enhancing your mental health and improving your physical wellbeing.
With your input, this will be a rewarding educational experience completely tailored around you and your needs. This element of personalisation means you get optimal results, which you’ll start to notice almost immediately.
You will find all eight guided series in the ‘Series’ section of the app. These include the following:
- Sleeping Well
- Overcoming my anxiety
- Eating Healthily and staying hydrated
- Keeping Active
- Tackling my depression
- Managing my stress
- Drinking Safely
- Gambling Safely
If you are unsure on which guided series to choose, each one has an introduction video to help you explore its key content and benefits.
Every session has various questionnaires, videos, audio and activities to help you stay engaged with each particular topic. You’ll be able to deepen your understanding from an inspiring combination of interactive and informational content.
You may wish to work through the guided series using the mood tracker; this is optional, so the choice is yours. If you do want to use these two features side by side, you will gain even more by having a clear picture of your progress as you go along.
We have created this toolkit so that you can easily find our logs, mood tracker, exercises, audio, and sleep monitoring. This will then help you to identify behaviours and monitor your progress. You can filter the toolkit down to the guided series you are working through, by clicking the different sections at the top of the page. The entire content of the toolkit is grounded in tried-and-tested scientific research. The more time you spend using them, the better your results will be.
