The How We Feel App: Helping Emotions Work for Us, Not Against Us

There’s an app for that!

Among over 1 million new apps uploaded to the app store each year, How We Feel was chosen as one of the top 15 apps of 2022 and was selected for the App Store’s “Cultural Impact ” Award for both its design and ability to help people build emotion skills and cultivate greater well-being.

The How We Feel app was designed to help users identify and track their emotions, learn what causes them, discover helpful regulation strategies, and identify patterns. Built by scientists, designers, engineers, and therapists, the How We Feel app helps users recognize, understand, and regulate emotions at the touch of a finger.

The app was founded as a science-based nonprofit, the How We Feel Project, Inc. The app’s content and scientific team is led by Professor Marc Brackett from the Yale Child Study Center and his colleagues from the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence.

“Being part of a creative team of psychologists and software designers to build an app that has the potential to improve millions of people’s lives is incredibly humbling and rewarding,” said Brackett.
