Motivation often follows action. You don't need to feel good to get going; use Get into Gear to get going and give yourself a chance of feeling good.

Get into Gear (GiG) is a practical self-help tool that will empower you to make a change in your life. Use it to track and gain points for any positive activity you do in your day, no matter how small, so you get a sense of satisfaction and achievement which helps to generate motivation.

Try GiG, it will help you do more of the activities that are important to you by encouraging you to be more active and inspiring you to change your mindset. Introduce structure, get motivated, recognize your achievements and gradually face the things you find harder to do.

“This app is so helpful, it has become part of my daily routine. It helps me focus on tasks that are beneficial, and reminds me how much I've achieved during the day. I'm using it to help lift my mood and improve my mental health. It's amazing how such a simple concept really can help. For the stats nerds among us (me included), being able to track my mood against the points attributed to daily activities is fantastic. For an app only on v1 I'm impressed and keen to see what's next.” - 5/5 Andy D

"I have tried a variety of habit tracker and self help apps, but this is unlike anything I have come across. Since using this app I have found myself more productive and proactive, both in my work and personal life. It takes a little time to figure out how to use, as it is very customisable, so it takes a few tweaks to get the point scores at the correct level. Once this was done though, it was the most nuanced and personalised self help tool I have ever used. I would highly recommend this app to anyone looking to use their time better or increase motivation.” - 5/5 Johnbn

How it works:

Set a daily points goal and get points for activity. An activity is anything that requires mental, physical or emotional effort. The harder you find an activity the more points you get for doing it.

Gain points by tracking activities, sticking to routine or doing less of what’s detrimental to you.

Hit your points goal, relax and reward yourself guilt-free. Enjoy reaching your points goal. Gradually increase it and find yourself doing those tougher activities, because it feels so good achieving your points goal.

GiG will help you face tough activities by encouraging you to gradually change your goal. Didn’t get your points? No problem, be kind to yourself.

Sometimes it's hard to complete a task. With GiG, recognize the value of even a few minutes of activity. Gain points in real time with the stopwatch or add activities you've completed. Turn a negative to-do list into a positive one: “I can get 20 points for that!”. Get points for mundane activities: “Urgh my commute again...I get 40 points though!”

Recognize the activities that help you feel good and log your mood. Learn more about why you feel the way you do and what impacts you most. Use the weekly charts to help you recognize you may be doing more than you think.

This is real self-help app

I struggle with what you would call daily routine and this app keeps me in check. I love it when I can reward myself with something special for my daily and weekly achievements. Great self-help tool at your fingertips
