Ok, so that’s a little harsh, but sometimes we all need a little perspective. Life is hard, but most of us are so incredibly lucky in the grand scheme of things that we really don’t have any excuse to go around feeling unhappy (read: feeling sorry for ourselves). In today’s consumerist society, there are so many messages that tell us that we need more and that if we don’t have something that we should feel unsatisfied. Since that’s not likely to change anytime soon, we thought we’d use one of the consumer mindset’s best weapons against itself, the iPhone.
Well, not the iPhone itself, but an iPhone app (droid comes later). An iPhone app designed to make you more grateful. Like a dieting app for your thinking. You list the things you are grateful for. Not just the big things like family and friends, but some of the simple things, like the water coming out of the faucet, or the fact you don’t have to walk 10 miles to work. You then can setup alerts to remind you to ‘beGrateful’ for that thing/person/item/whatever, and you also can log your gratitude, so you can go back and check to see how grateful you are (we even provide a little scoring system for you).
Sharing to Facebook and Twitter is available too in case you want to let everyone know that at 2:17am saturday morning you were grateful for the 24hr sandwich shop across the street from the…social club (I recommend the `Gargantuan` btw).
The best part? It’s a free app! Because, you know, the best things in life are free…get it? Links below, hope you check it out, and can leave a review, or send us feedback at ideas at challengemediagroup.com.
