Superbetter Website – Self Help
I was introduced recently by a close friend to a website called SuperBetter.com and I have to say that as far as self-help websites go this one is pretty impressive in both its concept and it’s originality.
The website makes self-help fun by taking the form of an online game, you become a virtual superhero and your goal is to improve an aspect or aspects of your life. By completing daily tasks and challenges that both strengthen your mind and also educate you in how to continue to improve your life for the better.
There are many features on the site, besides the actual gameplay, there is an online forum to meet people with similar goals as you. There are countless tips offered to you via the site’s sidebar and there are also videos to watch that explain everything in great detail.
These are the claims Superbetter.com make about their game:
Why Play SuperBetter?

Here are reasons people around the world are using SuperBetter:

Sounds great doesn’t it and it really is as good as it sounds. And there’s more:
The SuperBetter Toolkit

At the core of SuperBetter is a powerful community united by the belief that each of us has the ability to unleash our heroic potential, and that together we can make the world better. SuperBetter has a lively and supportive Forum, and the community connects on social media with the hashtag #SuperBetter.

For those who want to go deeper, SuperBetter is a book.
Jane McGonigal’s SuperBetter TED Talk has been viewed more than 5 million times. Sharing it is a great way to introduce others to SuperBetter.
So in my opinion it is well worth anyone going along to the Superbetter.com website and giving this a try, what have you got to lose? There is also apps for mobile devices available so that you can play superbetter on the go!
A big thank you goes out to Alli, who recommended the site to me and to the developers and everyone involved in Superbetter.com for making such a useful and worthwhile tool for everyone.
