    So basically last year I was feeling a bit low. I really didn’t know how to become better since I had never faced this before. So I just started noting what activities I did and whom I did it with in a google doc. Slowly I also started rating how I felt about the interaction. Soon I started to notice a pattern that I felt better when I hung out with some people and when I did certain activities. This way I was able to feel much better than before and I gained confidence that I can control my own mental health. I even built an app for this so that other people can do the same .

    The app is called Happyer which was made based on the above experience and provides insights into impact of a given activity or friend.

    Idea: deliberately misspell happiness whenever you use it, to be consistent with your brand.

    As someone dealing with A LOT of mental issues, thank you. I’ll for sure give this a try. Multiple therapists have said CBT isn’t really for me because my brain “doesn’t work that way” but my wife insists I try it. This is a good compromise potentially. Keep my therapist I like and do some CBT.

    I’ll be sure to provide feedback.

    No comment about the app or business but good luck.

    Did you do anything special to build the app on both android and iOS?

    Great looking app! Downloaded it myself and love how easy it is to use as soon as you open it up.

    One thought – there are a few mood tracking apps out there, what makes your app different?

    Thank you and thank god that you were able to channel that negative energy into the exact opposite. Even reading your post made me feel better.

    Good work OP!

    One thing I like here is the rating system. It’s interesting to reflect and rate how various interactions/activities made you feel. Not something I thought of much before. Interesting to see how some things which you think would make you happy aren’t as effective as you’d think and vice versa. Nice app congrats.

    Funny timing – I’ve tried dozens of self-improvement techniques over the years, but recently I started a self-awareness journal in a spreadsheet that does exactly this, and it has actually helped me reduce my time on Reddit, YouTube, News, etc. because I realized they don’t actually make me happier afterwards. Except I’m happy I ran across this post so I can get the app. =)

    I’ve always wanted to sell a digital product helping with mental health online as a subscription service in the future. This seems promising and congrats and thanks for helping people!!

    Did you program this yourself? If so, Flutter? React Native?

    The post gives the impression this is new but the app is 4 years old on the apple store? Anyway, gonna try it out. Thanks.

    This is really great. There’s a trend toward bypassing official, traditional healthcare toward a consumer-based approach. Great name and great idea. Congrats.
