Have you ever wondered if what you're doing every day aligns with what you consider important?

Studies have shown that acknowledging our core values is highly connected to our well-being.

In Positive Psychology, values are a set of principles an individual holds at one’s core. For instance, a person who prioritizes the value of “Family”, will aspire to spend more time and create more experiences with family members.

In Jo, you can learn about 17 core values in Positive Psychology, and choose 3 you believe to be most important to you and set weekly goals for the number of moments you want to enter for each value.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Sometimes Jo suggests wrong tags, is there something wrong? What should I do?

Jo makes educated guesses about which tags to suggest depending on the content of the journal. Each person is unique and might have different definitions when it comes to the values. As you write more and more journals, Jo learns valuable information about you and your preferences when it comes to tagging. Over time Jo will become better at tag suggestions. In the meantime, feel free to delete any tag suggestion you feel are inappropriate, and add the ones you feel better represent your moment.
