We are very excited to announce the release date (December 21, 2012) for our first app: Gratitude Journey – The All-in-one Gratitude Journal App!
Gratitude Journey has been in the making for a greater part of 2012. The idea came about as a sudden realization. I had been using a gratitude journal for months to essentially start my day on a happy note, and keep that going. For those who don’t know what a gratitude journal is, it’s as simple as it sounds. At specific times of the day, you journal about things that you’re grateful for in your life. It’s amazingly effective. By keeping an attitude of gratitude, you’re constantly reminded of the happy things in your life, which are often hidden by stress.
One day, a friend slash leadership coach was telling me about one of her morning habits. She has this totally cute practice of asking strangers in her building elevator, “What are you grateful for today?” I thought to myself, what a gift she is giving these people. When someone starts thinking about the macaroni art their daughter made for them, they’re going to be rocking a smile all day long. So the decision was made. Everyone deserves this happiness and what better way to do it than through smart phone apps.
Gratitude Journey is designed to enhance and automate the process of keeping a gratitude journal. You can add pictures to your entries, categorize them by type, and chart your progress. The two key features that really make the app powerful are the Daily Alarm and the Gratitude Gift. At specified times of the day, the app will send you randomly-selected past entries as a pick-me-up.
I can hardly contain my excitement until the release date. Feedback from the beta testers has been stellar. People are really getting value out of this practice. Stay tuned, and be sure to get your hands on one of the first copies of Gratitude Journey for yourself or a loved one.
