Spread happy to get happy.

Believe it or not, one of the best ways to encourage personal happiness
is to contribute to the happiness of others.


Happiness is a common human interest. The sheer amount of material that is based on the (perhaps not so) basic concept of happiness is astounding. The range of fields studying happiness include economics, psychology, philosophy and theology, all of which have their own opinions and writings on the subject, and how best to reach happiness.


One of the most effective ways to achieve happiness is through connections with others! By making and reinforcing networks of friends and family, and by practicing generosity, kindness, and thankfullness, we can increase the happiness of not only ourselves, but also the happiness of those around us. One of the most selfish things you can do is to do something for someone else.


Its an app! Get Happy is designed to help you do just that. Immediate, short term, and long term activities have been specially selected to help maximize happiness based on research. If something strikes you as awesome, use the app to share it. Track your activities with a stats page, and revisit your favs in the archive. Get inspired to get happy!

Give it a go!
