NEW YORK - March 3, 2015 - PRLog -- Barbara Fredrickson, world-renowned author and President Elect of the International Positive Psychology Association (IPPA), is partnering with Ran Zilca’s Intrinsic Mobile to develop the official Love 2.0 mobile app. The app, due out this summer, enables people to uncover what Fredrickson calls “micro-moments of positivity resonance” for better health and happiness.

The Love 2.0 mobile app will offer daily programs, including loving-kindness meditation and other exercises that have been developed jointly by University of North Carolina’s Positive Emotions and Psychophysiology (PEP) Lab and Intrinsic Mobile.

Ran Zilca’s latest personal transformation company, Intrinsic Mobile, is developing the Love 2.0 mobile app. By collaborating with some of the most brilliant minds in the positive psychology field, Intrinsic Mobile helps people drive positive behavior change by following scientifically-validated daily exercises.

The app dovetails coursework in Dr. Fredrickson’s highly popular Positive Psychology class on Coursera where she discusses the force of co-experienced positive emotions and lab-tested loving kindness.

The app is slated for release in Summer 2015. People can sign up now to be notified once the Love 2.0 mobile app is available for download at:
