It’s been shown that if you write down three good things that happen to you everyday, your happiness and positivity increase. Three Good Things, a happiness journal, enables you to do exactly that with a simple user-interface and gamification to encourage engagement.
In the world today, society tends to focus on the negative. Rather than remembering all of the good things in their lives, people often focus on the things which they don’t like. With Three Good Things, you can rewire your brain to focus on the positive by writing down good things that happen to you everyday. By finding positive things that happen in your daily life, you train your mind to notice the good things in life instead of allowing it to focus on the negative.
As Harvard Professor Shawn Achor explains in his book The Happiness Advantage, "this exercise has staying power.... the items you write down each day don't need to be profound or complicated, only specific. You can mention the delicious take-out Thai food you had for dinner, your child's bear hug at the end of a long day, or the well-deserved acknowledgement from your boss at work."

This app functions really well!
It’s good for when your stressed...When you feel like nothing in your day is good, try this app! It helps you focus on more positive things that happened throughout the day then the negative! And even for the gamers, they added levels and XP! (Experience Points) Overall, I find this a really good app and really suggest checking it out. It’s not like Angry Birds, Rules of Survival, even Geometry Dash, but it’s still very useful and worth looking into!
LOVE this app!
I had my daughter get this app as she is becoming a teenager! I wanted her to have this app to help her stay positive as she grows into a beautiful young women! This app is great and she has created goals to try and get to a streak of 50. I told her once she reached this we can go have a spa day just us two! I am very pleased with this app and have seen a very positive change in attitude since I had my daughter get this app!
Truly re-wired my brain!
After using this app for only a week, I have found myself focusing much more on the things in my life that I can be grateful for, whether they are big or small.
I was skeptical about the “re-wire your brain” claims at first, but I was pleasantly surprised that it has worked on me!
This app has helped me focus on the joy in the little things like finally cooking my eggs juuuust right today and bigger things like successfully finishing a course.
I love that it reminds me every evening to briefly write just 3 specific things that went well today, and it’s something that I now look forward to right before bed!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
