THREE GOOD THINGS
Simple, fuss-free gratitude journal that respects your privacy
Remember the bright side of life ✨
The story (and research) behind this app:
When studying at Duke University, one of our founders started experiencing symptoms of depression. As an alternative to medication, a counsellor told her about some incredible research the university had recently done.
Dr. Bryan Sexton, associate professor in psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Duke’s School of Medicine, found that simply listing three good things each day in a particular way increased happiness more effectively than Prozac! Participants were asked to:
List 3 good things that happened that day, noting their active role in the events (e.g. "I saw a pretty sunset today" rather than just writing "There was a pretty sunset").
Describe the emotion felt in each positive moment.
Increased feeling of well-being.
Improved sleep quality—when done within 2 hours of bedtime.
Greater mental resilience.
