According to researchers at the Harvard Medical School, “Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.” Grateful was created to make expressing gratitude in your life both easy and fun, as well as to remind you, during those down moments, of the many blessings in your life (that you've documented in Grateful).

Daily Prompts to Start You Off
With its simple interface and daily prompts, Grateful is designed to make reflection and giving thanks both a joyful and easy process. Daunted by a blank page? Not quite sure where to start? Grateful will greet you with one question, such as. 'What made you smile today'? or 'What made today a good day?'. All you have to do is answer. It can be a simple word. Or a simple paragraph. Grateful allows for both. You can also add a photo to support your thoughts.

Easy to Browse your Past Entries
Grateful's simple journal feed lets you browse your entries by TIME or by PROMPT. Want to see all the things that made you smile this year? Jump to those entries in your timeline. Want to see what your state of mind was last January? Jump to that month in your timeline.

Our Prompts or Yours
Grateful gives you the flexibility to make the journal truly yours. When sit down to write an entry, Grateful will start you off with a prompt. You have the option of:
1.) Answering the prompt
2.) Choosing a different prompt
3.) Writing your own prompt

Missing a calendar view


😊 I downloaded the app yesterday and I find its simplicity nice, however was tempted to look into other apps as i saw they have a “track your mood” calendar view that allows you to set your mood with a face and then see how you felt every day (displaying the faces) and then see an overall mood graph for the month/week etc... i thought that was super cool, but then again other apps are too full of stuff its overwhelming. Tried using an emoji here but then i dont have a calendar view to track my mood progress (which btw is pretty encouraging if you manage to uplift it)... seeing more happy faces on a calendar for sure helps! Any chance this could be included? 😃✨ (I also saw a cool “gratitude jar” on some app, which allowed you to see your blessings (what you were grateful for) after clicking on it, but again, it was too complicated, also kind of public and needed to upgrade to a paid version for the nicest things advertised on the app store (not so cool). Maybe you can give this a thought and improve it much more! Thanks tho! Nice app

Helped my Depression


I’ve been suffering with Depression, Anxiety and Anorexia Nervosa and this was recommended to me by my therapist. I gave it a shot and it’s so easy to use. We all get stuck in a cloud of negativity but this will help you break from it. I started to notice after a few days of using this that I started to see the positivity in things. It’s changed my mindset to look at the good of the days we go through instead of focusing on the negativity as well as appreciating the good in our lives even if it’s as small as the smell of our shampoo bottle. I upgraded right away to the premium and made my own prompts! I highly recommend this app! I feel miles better than I did before!

My Second Day


This is only my second day using this journal so that’s why I only gave it 4 stars, I’m still learning about it and seeing what I can do with it.. so far I am enjoying it, it’s very simple which I Love and the Prompt questions they give when you first open it is Great!! Sometimes you don’t always know how to get started when you’re new to having a journal, Even though I’m not totally sure about it yet, I paid the $4.00 for the full version I like the free version enough to take chance of paying for the upgrade.. I will update in a couple of weeks, for right now I would say ‘Yes’ try it out for yourself..
