Mood Mint combines a variety of psychological techniques to help boost your mood and reduce stress, anxiety and depression.

For optimal results, you should aim to train for around 5 to 10 minutes per day.To complete the program, you need to earn 10 000 points.

There are 4 main components to Mood Mint:

Cognitive Bias Modification (CBM) is a computer-based therapy that gets the user to repeatedly select positive information over negative information. The aim of the game is to tap the positive image as quickly as possible. In this way, CBM helps train your brain to automatically focus more on positive information in your everyday life.The result: less stress and a happier you.

You can delete, edit or add your own images to the bias modification program. Add pictures of things you are grateful for, happy events and people that are special to you and give them a positive charge. These will also help to trigger the release of ‘feel-good’ chemicals during each training session.

Slides will appear during the cognitive bias modification session. These are loaded with bite-sized tips, facts, stats, techniques and exercises to help boost your mood. You can take your time reading the slides and carrying out the exercises as the timer will stop while they are on screen.

Go to Settings to edit and add your own happy notes to the program.


Just as focusing your attention on negative or threatening information can trigger the release of stress chemicals like cortisol and adrenaline, so focusing on positive information can trigger the release of ‘feel-good’ chemicals like serotonin, oxytocin and endorphins.The word search is designed to trigger these ‘feel-good’ chemicals by getting you to focus on positive words. You need to find all 4 of the words listed below the letter grid to complete the word search.Drag your finger over the letters in the grid to highlight each of the words listed.

To maximise the positive effect, try to think of all the positive things you associate with each word as you search for it.


There is a guided breathing exercise at the end of each training session. Focusing on your breathing helps to ground you in the present, and triggers the parasympathetic (‘rest and digest’) response, instantly making you feel calmer.

Simple and easy to use, but missing a trick


I haven't used this app long enough to rate its impact, however, there are a few things which seem lacking for a paid app. Firstly, there's no ways of tracking your progress over time (usage and score). All you can see is your best score and total usage. Secondly, some more context would be helpful - the aim is to reach 10,000 points - why, what then? Next, some sort of optional notifications would help remind you to use the app. Finally, it says you should use the app for 5-10mins a day. It doesn't say if this should be in one go or over the day. It would be helpful to see how much time you've spend today. Without these features, the app seems a bit too stripped down to my mind.

Reduced anxiety indeed


I've had this app for over a year. I don't used it as often any more, as it improved my condition hugely.
This new version is trendier and easier to use. The science behind is great too, makes me happy to see more and more research being poured into this by mainstream media too actually.
I am socially more comfortable and can go to superstores too without freaking out after half an hour! Yay!
I can only recommend it.
cheapest and easiest way to do something about being the moody and angsty guy....

Great app for improving mood! 😊


I've been using this app for a couple of years now and as a naturally 'glass is half empty' type of person, I've found CBM to really help improve my mood. I use this app every day for 10 minutes after my mediation and feel it really helps me feel better about life.
Also love the improvements that have been recently made. Uploading your own positive affirmation photos is a really nice touch. Well done Mood Mint! ❤️
