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:

  1. 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").

  2. Describe the emotion felt in each positive moment.

Results:

  1. Increased feeling of well-being.

  2. Improved sleep quality—when done within 2 hours of bedtime.

  3. Greater mental resilience.

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.
— Oprah Winfrey
 
 

UC Berkeley and UC Davis launched a multiyear project on Expanding the Science and Practice of Gratitude. They found that people who regularly practice gratitude report:

  1. Stronger immune systems

  2. Lower blood pressure

  3. Higher levels of joy, optimism, and happiness 

  4. Acting with more generosity and compassion

  5. Feeling less lonely and isolated
