Everyone wants to be happy. Unfortunately, life often teaches us how to minimize UN-happiness instead of how to be truly happy.
Through ground-breaking research in Positive Psychology, we have learned that rather than running away from misery, we should run toward happiness.
Doing 5 simple things each day will train your brain to think more positively about yourself and the world around you. As you develop these habits, you will learn to choose happiness each and every day.
--- 5 Daily Habits ---
1. GRATITUDE -- write down 3 new things you are grateful for
2. JOURNAL -- relive a positive experience from the day
3. EXERCISE -- increase endorphins and reduce stress
4. MEDITATION -- clear the clutter from your mind
5. ACTS of KINDNESS -- focus on someone else for a few minutes
Doing these 5 things consistently takes patience and persistence. High 5 gently reminds you throughout the day to do these 5 tasks and keeps track of your progress!

** I have no affiliation with the author, but the idea for this app grew from wanting to apply principles from "The Happiness Advantage" by Shawn Achor. There is a link to his excellent TED Talk from a few years ago within the app, but I highly recommend reading the full book. It has changed my life, and I personally owe an immeasurable amount of happiness to the things I learn each time I read or listen to his books.
