A Look at Mood & Mental Health: Our Core Values

Updated: Oct 26, 2021

A good place to start is to look at mood/emotional wellness/mental health through the lens of our core values, since these influence the products we build. So here they are along with some extra narrative.

- We believe that literally everyone needs some emotional help from time to time and that we're not that different from one another.

Life gives us all ups and downs. Very few people are so blessed with great parenting, great brain chemistry, and no significant negative events in their lives. The remaining 99.9% of us need some help now and then.

- We believe there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution to mood and that trying different tools and documenting their results is critical to understand what works for you.

There are many tools and treatments to help people with the health of their moods including psychotherapies like CBT and numerous anti-depressants (too many to list), as well as lifestyle factors like sleep hygiene, exercise, sunlight exposure and more. We all respond differently both in terms of how these treatments effect their mood and the potential side effects. It's all about a willingness to try different tools, not giving up if the first one doesn't work (as is often the case), and documenting your results.
