ToDon’t was Created to Make You Happier and Less Anxious

When we set out to make ToDon’t, we didn't just want to be another productivity (or anti-productivity) app, we wanted to make real change.

The Experiment

In an independent study that we conducted, twenty college students willingly made ToDon’t lists of at least five items, each day for one week. We required that all of the students committed to avoiding the tasks they listed, and had them track any emotional effects that this had.


The Results

At the end of the week, nineteen out of twenty students felt happier, less anxious, and had noticed a generally improved mood. We saw lots of ToDon’t items like “do not text my ex”, “do not check my email after 6PM”, and “do not eat sugar”, but the largest commonality we found is that people were going off social media.

“Prior to using ToDon’t list, I had some really bad habits. I was checking my email at 2AM every day. Listing the things I shouldn’t be doing in the app really helped me not do them.”
