Fika.The 5 minute emotional workout app
We’re on a mission to mainstream Emotional Fitness by bringing the daily 5 minute emotional workout to universities and schools around the world.

Exercise keeps us physically fit, but what about our Emotional Fitness?

  • Our emotional strength and resilience?
  • Our flexibility and adaptability to change?
  • Our confidence and focus?
  • Our empathy and acceptance?
  • Our openness and connection with others?
These essential character strengths need exercise too.
    Fika is inspired by Scandinavian culture and is built on an evidence-base of self-reflection, journaling and co-coaching.
    Aligned with the 2019 NICE evidence standards for digital health technologies, Fika also draws on scientific evidence from CBT, ACT, Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness and Positive Psychology to build Emotional Fitness.
  • Feel resilient and able to bounce back
  • Be confident to step-up and take control
  • Communicate clearly and listen actively
  • Think creatively and solve problems
  • Take criticism and use it constructively
  • Adapt to changing circumstances
  • Create healthy, lasting relationships
  • Be focussed and driven to succeed
  • Stay strong and clear-headed in a crisis
    Fika exercises are designed to increase attainment and to reduce attrition. And to help develop valuable soft skills such as confidence, resilience, adaptability and acceptance while improving focus, social connection and empathy.
