Why notifications can change your mood (The spotlight effect)

Why notifications can change your mood (The spotlight effect)

According to the research, it's all about our perception of self. When we receive work messages or automated notifications, it reminds us that we're just another entry in a database, some random person in a maze. We all have a desire to be noticed and recognized. When we constantly see a small message on an iPhone all day that could have been sent to anyone on the planet, it makes us feel less important.

When we receive messages from friends and family, it reinforces the idea that we matter to others, that our phones are there to help us be social and connect on a deeper level.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
