Track Your Happiness App

1 Feb

What makes you happy? I was listening to NPR the other week and the Track Your Happiness App was mentioned. Using this app, you are prompted throughout your day your happiness level. The idea is that you’ll be able to track your happiness and find out what factors — for you personally — are associated with greater happiness.

The cool thing is you will also contribute to our scientific understanding of happiness. Track Your Happiness was created as part of Matt Killingsworth’s doctoral research at Harvard University.

Track Your Happiness is a scientific research project that investigates what makes life worth living.
