About

Those little victories lead to motivation and momentum, which helps you feel good. Which helps you do more.... you get the idea. Try it today and make small changes that change everything.
Hi, I’m Matt and in 2015 I was suffering from severe depression and was struggling with EVERYTHING. I couldn’t do anything for myself. I’d start something and not finish it. I’d then find myself on the sofa or in bed staring at the ceiling. Just starting a thing was hard enough. When I did feel, I felt ashamed and guilty.

To get motivated and recognise even a few minutes of activity I started timing myself for 30 minute chunks and assigning a points value to activities. The harder I found it to start an activity the more points I got.

Getting points feels good so I started giving myself points for everything that took effort: cleaning my teeth, chores, exercise etc. I even gave myself points for not drinking alcohol. I had created Get into Gear.

I set myself a daily and weekly points goal and started to hit those goals and gradually increase them. Hitting the goal felt good. I felt less guilty and ashamed because by recognising my effort I realised I'd actually done something, even if I hadn’t finished anything. I could reward myself with guilt-free downtime.

Gradually increasing the goal when I could meant that I started to face those hard to do activities, build momentum and motivation. In a few weeks I was feeling great and was functioning again. It turns out what I was doing is a form of what psychotherapists call Behavioural Activation, an evidence-based treatment for depression.

Having had great success sharing Get into Gear with a therapist and their clients we decided to make it into an app to empower you to make change, do more of what matters to you and feel good about yourself.

I use the app daily to do more of what’s important to me. It keeps me motivated and my activity menu is constantly evolving as I face new challenges, form new habits or have new goals I want to approach (I’m getting a lot of points for writing this).

Thank you for reading this. I hope Get into Gear helps you as much as it helps me.

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!
