This app was built out of a personal need to cope with anxiety & depression, improve mental health and bring a self-change. As Rumi said: “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”

If you want to improve your life, improve your self-image.
Being grateful & thankful for all of the blessings you have makes you feel good about yourself. You realize that there are so many reasons to be grateful, and your self-esteem is elevated. When you feel good about yourself & happy with who you are, you will find that this attitude also raises how you view your own life & the world around you. As such, gratitude creates positive emotions, like joy, love, and contentment, which research shows can undo the grip of negative emotions, like anxiety.

With over a lakh users on the app, we have found from our users that the app has been tremendously beneficial for improving their self-image, feeling good about their life, becoming more mindful, coping with depression & anxiety, self love & appreciation and to lift their life vibrations and raise their spirits. Gratitude journaling allows us to shift our focus & attention towards our blessings which we take for granted, and creates a grateful journey. Positive affirmations or self image affirmations works wonder if practiced well. Expressing gratitude creates your delightful happy feed & calms your mind.

How Gratitude, affirmations and law of attraction works have been wonderfully explained in the books – The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, Power of your subconscious mind - Joseph Murphy, The Magic, Simple Abundance. There are several personal coaches, mindfulness coaches, yoga trainers & mentors that have found Gratitude journaling to be the best start towards self development and self love.

And at these times especially, it’s tough to get started to bring a self change. Gratitude journaling and practicing affirmations is relatively easy.

Wonderful in every way!

I downloaded and tested 4 different gratitude journal apps, and this app is by far the clear, stand-out winner. Easy to use, easy to look at, and wonderfully customizable. You can select the color for each journal, add photos, and there’s no limit on characters. You can even share your journal entry as a letter and it sends exactly how it looks in the app. There’s also uplifting and inspiring quotes every day and a nice reminder alert if you wish to be intentional about your journaling. The app will track your days and streaks, although I wish the calendar piece was a little more of a focal point in the app. In any event, this is the best app out there and I am so glad I found it!! Download right away!

Would be 5 stars

I love my Gratitude App. I start every morning with my gratitudes and affirmations. Because it’s so convenient and easy, I am in a 140 day streak and still counting. I recommend it to all my friends, family, and clients frequently. My only negative is, they changed the journal background from black to white. I preferred the black. The white background is jarring to my eyes. I wish there was a setting where we could choose the background. It would be cool if you could choose a color or “texture.” I love that you can insert pics and choose the color for your gratitudes and that you can change the affirmation background to a pic. I do both all these options all the time. But when you’re in journal view, you’re stuck w the stark white background. Please create this option! 🙏🏻 Thank you for a great app!

Excellent App, so well thought out and simple

I have never written a review for an app, so that should provide insight into my feelings about this one. This app is perfectly simple. It’s clean, no ads, and just well thought out. I appreciate the changing quote each morning. I like that I can change the color palette depending on my mood or preference. I appreciate how it tracks my writing streak. It’s implicitly is what makes it a keeper. I believe less is more in just about every way and this app shines here. Just download it and start using it. You will notice over tune how your entries evolve because mindfulness and gratitude have a very real way of reframing our thoughts and perspectives.
