The Good List launches on iOS aiming to improve mental health

Los Angeles, California - The Good Co. announces the release of The Good List, an audio-guided daily self-care app that uses practices based on research from Yale, UC Berkeley, Harvard as well as other world renowned institutions, to make mindfulness part of your daily life. The app is free to download and try on the iPhone, iPad and M1 MacBooks. Studies have shown that these practices boost happiness, build resilience to stress, form better relationships, and help you find your purpose. These practices include guided journaling, meditation and breath work.

"While meditation is a key element of mindfulness, research has shown that gratitude, connection, self-compassion, and purpose help a person live a more fulfilling life." said co-founder, Amit Wadhawan. "Science has also shown that these traits and values can be learned over time. The Good List helps in practicing these skills in just a few minutes a day and aims to make these traits part of your daily life. There's an incredible amount of research that has been done on this. We let the research guide us and turn that research into these bite-sized practices that you can easily make part of your daily life."

The Good List is an audio-guided self care app with the goal of making these practices easy and effective. The app not only provides easy ways to do the practices but also helps a person learn about the science behind why a particular practice is helpful and resources to learn more about them. The Good List also has structured programs called Pathways that help with various aspects of your life such as work, relationships, self-confidence and sleep.

Co-founder, Max Simon explains, "Both Amit and I were working crazy hours at a startup, were parents to toddlers and life was getting pretty hectic. We talked about these practices almost as values for having a more fulfilling life but lacking time to even think about self-care in this holistic way. It became clear to us that something like The Good List could help people deal with everyday stress and add more meaning and purpose to what we were doing."

Amit drew the inspiration for The Good List from online courses such as the Science of Well-being at Yale University and The Science of Happiness at UC Berkeley. The Science of Well-being is based on "Psychology and the Good Life," the most popular class in Yale's 300-year history. "The goal is to help people realize that happiness comes from within. In a world where there are so many things vying for our attention at all times, making something that is simple, seamless and makes this content accessible is key to helping us achieve our goal."

The Good List was founded in 2020 by Amit Wadhawan and Max Simon. They worked together at Aaptiv, a fitness startup based out of New York, for more than five years. They were both new parents and had children around the same time. That combined with working long hours lead to a fast paced and hectic life. This is where they realized that a product which could help people slow down, realize what's important in life and appreciate the things they already had was something that was missing. After months of research and learning, they found these research-based practices that were not only backed by science but were also incredibly simple to make part of your daily life.
