Existing solutions aiding in stress management for college students commonly include university counseling staff, stress management workshops, clinical psychologists and other external health professionals. Yet, associated with these traditional solutions are more obstacles preventing the integration of routine stress relief practices into schedules such as limited university staff and funds, lack of student attendance at workshops, accessibility, lack of conveniency, and discomfort of transparency.
On one hand, smiling has been proven to result in increased stress recovery and reductions of negative aftereffects of stress. While on the other, mobile applications have the potential to employ efficient and accurate user behavior data collection and real time analysis to inform situational decision making. Hapi is a hypothetical solution that seeks to combine and leverage the benefits of smile therapy and the accessibility, flexibility, and popularity of wellness mobile applications for the college lifestyle.
