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."

Great Procrastination Killer!
I use this app to relieve me of constant 'head lists' for tasks that need doing and to stop me from putting things off. I plan for 3 things, act on them, then record them in the app, take a screenshot and put it in my Day One journal. Done. No more beating myself up inside for not doing the 1001 tasks I feel I HAVE to do. I'm more relaxed now I feel good each day for achieving what I set out to do. No more excuses/procrastination. Everything gets done. 3 things only each day. Why not try it? Works for me. One star less than 5 perfect only because the more text you input, the smaller the text becomes, which irritates me but obviously does not affect the effectiveness of the app. 👍🏻
Three Good Things
I downloaded this app on advice from someone running a team building session at work
We have all been struggling with the pressures of running a community respiratory service during the pandemic.
I was still suffering brain fog from Long Covid making the changes overwhelming me. It was difficult not to focus on daily difficulties
This app made me focus on the little things in life that are positive. They all join together to make you feel better
Some days I really struggled to think of 3 good things .... the best could be - Got out of bed or Didn’t kill anyone! But some days I was really excited to write something like Beautiful Sunset or Patient thanked me for helping them. It really made me stop & think to find the positives in the day & I am in a much better place now.
I would recommend this app. Simple to use, effective & takes little time to complete.
You can look back at your history which helps to see progress & remember good things
Simple, effective, brilliant
I rarely to never write reviews on App Store but will this time. I downloaded a few of these gratitude apps to compare. I deleted the rest and am keeping this one. The others were jumbled and cluttered with gimmicky rubbish. It’s immediately a chore to navigate them, defeating the entire purpose of the app. This one is clean, simple and no nonsense. 5 stars and please developers, I plead - don’t go and change anything or add any gimmickry, leave it just as it is!
