This app will help you be happier! It pushes you to think about what has gone right in your day, which has been shown to increase happiness. Every time you note down what good things have happened (and there is always something), you receive points you can use to build up a garden and also a Gratitude Card with suggestions for further things you could do to increase your gratitude and happiness.

Research shows that one of the most effective ways that people can become happier is to note down the good things that happen every day. This shifts our focus onto what has gone right, rather than leaving us to ruminate about problems.

There is a huge amount of research indicating that the act of recalling and writing down what has gone well each day is one of the best way to increase your happiness. One study found that gratitude journaling for ten weeks increased happiness by 25% over the people who didn't keep a gratitude journal. Gratitude is also linked to high self-esteem, kindness, good health, energy and generosity.

The Gratitude Garden was designed by Izzy McRae, a coach and happiness teacher. You can find out more information about her and her courses at www.izzymcrae.com. Neville Sattentau produced the beautiful artwork. His website is www.nevart.co.uk.

Ratings and Reviews

Good but could be better


This is a great app, and it does make you feel better, remembering what good things have happened, no matter how small. However, it is a shame you can only go so far before having to start again. I'd love to see more gardens added rather having to re-download.

Overall though for a free app, it's great and I would highly recommend.

Bug needs sorting


Lovely app, however I can no longer access the diary? Also very limiting as when you get to the end you have to start again from scratch which is kind of boring. The issue with having to write each day before midnight also needs addressing.



This is a lovely app. Writing down each day what has made you happy is one of the best known ways to reinforce positive thoughts and banish depression. This app makes it easy to get into good habits by rewarding you with a 'gratitude garden' and thought provoking quotations. The best app of its kind.
