How it works

Set your points goal and add unlimited custom activities to your profile. Assign points to each. The harder you find something the more points you get.
Get points for anything that requires effort. Recognize even a few minutes of activity by gaining points using the stopwatch feature.
Hit your points goal, relax and reward yourself guilt-free. Gradually increase your goal and find yourself doing those harder to do things.

Why it Works

Primarily, the app works by helping the user to set realistic goals to complete daily tasks, and gain points for task completion. This aspect of the app is supported by an evidence-based therapy for depression; behavioural activation. Behavioural activation is aimed at encouraging a person with depression to gradually do more, and reverse the negative cycle of depression. By combining this with an app design and obtaining points from task completion, the app also draws on neuroscience. Research has already shown that using apps and engaging in tasks or games which award points trigger the release of dopamine- a feel good brain chemical. Dopamine release is also associated with motivation. The combination of increased activity, increased motivation, a sense of achievement and the positive feel good effects of dopamine release supports the user in recovering from depression

Research shows that motivation often follows action, not the other way around.

You don't need to feel good to get going; use Get into Gear to get going and give yourself a chance of feeling good.

This app is so helpful,
it has become part of my daily routine. It helps me focus on tasks that are beneficial, and reminds me how much I've achieved during the day. I'm using it to help lift my mood and improve my mental health. It's amazing how such a simple concept really can help. For the stats nerds among us (me included), being able to track my mood against the points attributed to daily activities is fantastic. For an app only on v1 I'm impressed and keen to see what's next.

I would highly recommend.
I have tried a variety of habit tracker and self help apps, but this is unlike anything I have come across. You can track and gain points for any positive activity you do in your day, no matter how small, so you get a sense of satisfaction and achievement which helps to generate motivation. Since using this app I have found myself more productive and proactive, both in my work and personal life. It takes a little time to figure out how to use, as it is very customisable, so it takes a few tweaks to get the point scores at the correct level. Once this was done though, it was the most nuanced and personalised self help tool I have ever used. I would highly recommend this app to anyone looking to use their time better or increase motivation.

Motivating and handy
I've been using this app on maternity leave. It's really helped me get more structure to my days, and motivate me to do things for myself like short workouts/stretching or calling a friend. It also helps me recognize just how much I have been doing even on days when I feel I haven't achieved anything in particular. I love how it's fully customizable to my own needs and goals, and that I can get points for doing things in small increments, which is motivating and handy with a newborn to care for!
