Happyfeed was founded by me, Matt Kandler, as a way to find more happiness during a particularly difficult period of my life. I first started gratitude journaling in a Google Doc appropriately named "Gratitude" after reading about the benefits. As a designer and recent graduate from Stanford University, I wanted something simpler, easier-to-use, and always accessible. I'd never built an app, so I decided to take an online course while sketching out early designs for what would become Happyfeed.
Our mission is to make it unbelievably simple and fun to build a new healthy habit. Positive psychology research has found strong evidence to support the practice of gratitude journaling. Each new feature is intended to add even more joy - like custom reminders, a "Happiness Jar," Pods for social support, and daily throwbacks.
If you'd like to hear more about Happyfeed, please reach out to me (Matt) directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'd be glad to share more details about my story and goals 😄
