YOU-app is the simple, science-based way to reach your goals. Stressed? Want to live happier? Looking to up your productivity? We all have it in us, but knowing how to get there is not always obvious. We do too much at once, get discouraged, and slip back into our old routines.

YOU-app is based on the science of sustainable behavior change: there’s magic in small actions. The app encourages you to take small steps – micro-actions – that over time add up to large change.

This is not an app to hijack your attention. We only want a minute of your day, and we help you create positive, lasting change – one small action at a time.
Based on science. Made for busy people.

Editors’ Notes

We all want to lead happier, healthier lives. But for a lot of us, when we try to make big changes for the better, it’s too easy to get disheartened, cheat, and slide back into our old ways. YOU-app’s solution is simple: don’t aim for drastic changes all at once. Instead, the app encourages you to take many small steps—“micro-actions”—that over time accumulate to push you in the right direction. One day, the suggested micro-action might be enjoying a view; the next, it could be eating fresh fruit. YOU-app gently nudges you to complete these daily activities in a way that’s positive, empowering, and fun.


What a wonderful app!! This is such a great idea!!!

This is an absolutely wonderful app! I used to have an app called Happier which is a social gratitude app. I got rid of it because it was to buggy and they didn't really take into account any suggestions that were given. This appears to be a social gratitude journal and then some!! Would it be possible in the future to post videos of our micro actions? That would be a wonderful update!! I just got this app today,but feeling more positive and wonderful already!! I love the idea of Jamie Oliver's petition which I already signed and keeping us positive and eating healthy!!I hope to have followers soon. I will be getting inspiration from other members. Thank you SOOO MUCH FOR DEVELOPING THIS APP!! Just yesterday I was in a real funk because I didn't know which direction to go in my life,but now I really feel like this could definitely guide me in the right direction!!


Helps with depression

I cannot begin to say enough about this app. It makes me feel so much happier and as though I can still breathe. After my daughter came into the world I started to struggle with happiness more. I've always had trouble with my mood. This app gives me small daily and weekly tastes to focus on. There are also other people that do the same and support complete strangers. There is no drama like other social sites just happiness and mindfulness. Thank you to those who made this app. I truly feel less depressed, more in the moment, and thankful for what is in my life because it helps me to stop and see the beauty around me.
