10 Scenarios

We have selected 10 stressful situations people commonly face in healthcare settings. Click on the scenario to hear the situation in full. Ask yourself “How do I feel?” The antidote corresponding to that situation is revealed through a short meditation. It will calm you down and bring you back to a state of balance.


The Foundation’s activities are free of charge and managed wholly by volunteers. Contributions to further the Foundation’s work are most welcome.

There are key skills essential to have at hand in your meditation toolbox. Get to know these core meditations as part of your daily practice.

    It is a very good meditation App. I like all the nice pictures and the sounds are great. I use many of the scenarios and the core meditation when I am feeling anxious and overwhelmed. The words, music and pictures make me feel relaxed and mindful and help me concentrate better. I really enjoy the Happidote App and have recommended it to my friends. It’s great! – Volunteer/Service User, SWYPT

    I have used the Happidote App, all 10 scenarios and the three core meditations many times. It helps me to deal with stress by managing the situation better – allowing me to turn negativity into positive and getting a greater outcome of the situation. It helps me gain more confidence in any stressful situation or when I feel overwhelmed. For example, when I am having trouble to sleep I use the ‘stressed and overwhelmed’ scenario. The male voice is more effective for me and soothing to help me go into my sacred place. I find this app very beneficial and will definitely recommend it others – clients and staff. – SWYPT Community Support Worker, SK Core team, Folly Hall

    The way the App is designed is simple and easy to follow. The length of the meditations is perfect – it gives bite size portions to digest. I like the option that you can go straight to the antidote of a scenario or choose the core meditations. I have used quite a few of the Happidote scenarios and they have made me feel better about myself – to be more self-appreciation and to instil self-compassion. I have and will continue to definitely recommend it to others to feel more empowered and not alone. – Volunteer SWYPT
