The Happiness Experiment / 3GoodThings

The Happiness Experiment / 3GoodThings is New Zealand’s only gratitude app for young people.

An engaging way for kids to reflect daily on the small, positive things in their life, kids use the 3GT app to record and share 3GoodThings with their friends, family or for themselves. This simple daily practice of taking a photo or sharing a few words helps to shift focus toward solution-based thinking, therefore changing the way they step out into the world each day.

When you write 3GoodThings every night it shifts your focus toward noticing more and more positive things, therefore changing the way you step out into the world each day.
It increases self awareness, increases your emotional resilience, practices being in the present (mindfulness) and with all that gratitude you mental well being is at an all time high.

3GT App Available on the Apple Store!

The Happiness Experiment / 3GoodThings

How to do it:

Reflect on your day and find 3 good things that happened (don’t feel you have to go around creating NEW ones – there’ll be plenty there once you look!)
Write them down (and share them if you feel brave!). Get a #3goodthings journal, this way on the tough days you can look back and read all the wonderful things you already have in your life.
Reflect on your part in each of them …do this for at least 21 days (even better 100!)

Why should I do it?

With so much negativity in the media, the focus on negative things seems ever present. Its easy to be consumed by evidence of violence, war, natural disasters, the GFC, redundancies, loved ones dying of cancer, being diagnosed with depression, youth suicide rates, appalling child abuse and bullying at school and at work. This is why we believe its so important to remember and reflect on the good things in each day – taking responsibility for your own mind and what you feed it, as much as you do your body.

What happens?

When you write 3GoodThings every night it shifts your focus toward noticing more and more positive things, therefore changing the way you step out into the world each day (redirecting your neural pathways).
It increases self awareness, compassion, increases your emotional resilience, practices being in the present (mindfulness) and with all that gratitude your mental well being is at an all time high, your focus and concentration is better, which means your productivity is fantastic!
