Have you ever tried to journal? We have too. Do you still journal consistently? Probably not - and you aren’t alone. The world has never been more depressed, and journaling has always been a proven solution, but it’s hard: input friction remains too high with incomplete habit loops leading to low reward. We're building the world's first intelligent journal to provide millions of Millennials and GenZ access to self-directed therapy to live happier and more meaningful lives.
