How it works
Decide what habits you want to work on
To change a habit, we must do it in the way that’s right for us. Often, people fail to master a habit because they’re using an approach that, sure, works well for a co-worker or sweetheart—but not for them.
Whether you have big goals like writing a novel or training for a marathon, or want to improve foundational habits like eating and sleeping better, the key is to identify the specific changes that will make you happier.
Find the tools that work for you
The Happier app uses Gretchen Rubin’s “Four Tendencies” personality framework to suggest habit-tracking tools for each individual’s Tendency. By identifying whether you are an Obliger, Questioner, Upholder, or Rebel based on how you respond to inner and outer expectations, the app is able to make tailored recommendations from its menu of tools. You can also use multiple tools to support the same aim, or change it up if it’s not working.

The best time to start
Now more than ever, people need practical, customized, easy-to-use tools to foster the good habits that will help them to become happier, calmer, more focused, and more playful.
People often question whether technology makes our lives happier—or not. Technology is a bad master but a good servant, and if used right, it can help us transform our lives. (We can even use technology to get control of technology! For instance, use the Happier app to track the habit to “Go internet-free two hours each afternoon.”)
We’ve all been asking ourselves, “What really matters? How can I step back, and make changes, so I can have the life I want?” This app puts this transformation within reach. The best time to start a Happiness Project is five years ago—the second best time is now.Get Started
