The App aims to encourage users to develop a grateful attitude towards life and live abundantly. Users shift their attention to positive experiences in daily lives and change their cognitive schema through repetitive practices by persistently writing expressive journals. Developing positive cognitive schema helps reduce relapse and incidence of emotional disorders, which is often characterised by rumination of negative thought.
