Research has found many examples of how doing good, in ways big or small, not only feels good but also does us good. For instance, the well-being-boosting and depression-lowering benefits of volunteering have been repeatedly documented. As has the sense of meaning and purpose that often accompanies altruistic behavior. Even when it comes to money, spending it on others predicts increases in happiness compared to spending it on ourselves. Moreover, there is now neural evidence from fMRI studies suggesting a link between generosity and happiness in the brain. For example, donating money to charitable organizations activates the same (mesolimbic) regions of the brain that respond to monetary rewards or sex. In fact, the mere intent and commitment to generosity can stimulate neural change and make people happier. Recent research suggests yet another way our well-being can benefit from practicing pro-social behavior: helping others regulate their emotions helps us regulate our own emotions, decreases symptoms of depression, and ultimately, improves our emotional well-being.
Instead of having to spend hours wading through a pile of new email, Spark makes it easy. Its Smart Inbox automatically categorizes your email into three categories---personal, notifications, and newsletters. That makes it much easier to recognize what's important and what you can tackle later. Even when the app isn't open, you can customize notifications to only see what's truly important. When you need to search, you can use natural language like "link from Sam sent yesterday." The app lets you access specific search terms to use at any time, or you can create a smart folder for quicker access. Spark integrates with a host of other apps and features including Dropbox, iCloud Drive, and more. If you come across an email that you don't have time to reply to, you can snooze it for later. It's also possible to compose an email and schedule it to send later, even if your iPhone is off. What's more, the app is built for teams and collaboration. You can create secure links to an email or conversation to share with others. Team members can also work together to compose emails in real-time.
