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."

Perfect for my nighttime routine
Quick and low-key, familiar feeling as posting a quick tweet. Low stimulation makes it perfect for my night time routine, and it kind of puts the whole day into perspective in a positive way. There’s only like 100 characters allowed per “good thing” you wrote, so I like that it can’t become a journaling experience I get overly sucked into because that’s sully what makes me want to skip journaling at the end of a long day to begin with. Easy to use, easy to stick with, easy to love. Sometimes simple really is better,
An Amazing APP! Love it!
Use it as my daily gratitude journal. It captures positive thoughts in a quick and concise manner. I’ve always been challenged to be consistent in my daily recording. This forces me to be specific and succinct about what went well and what I’m grateful for daily. The daily reminder is a great feature. Set at 9pm to ensure the day doesn’t end without slowing down and being fully present to reflect on what went well. I refer this app to friends, family and colleagues all the time! Today I’m grateful for “3 Good Things!”
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!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
