What is Zeeds?

Many people believe that external motivation, such as money, power or status; is what motivates us the most. This is why almost all lifestyle apps are built according to point systems, or functions for social boasting. But the research is crystal clear. Intrinsic motivation leads to higher goal attainment and and long-term frequency , than extrinsically motivated behaviors. Intrinsic motivation comes from knowing what is important in life, and acting on those values.
People who consistently act in accordance with their values, should feel a heightened sense of meaning in their lives. Research shows that this is associated with lower levels of anxious, and depressive symptoms. By helping people align their values with their behaviors, we are able to prevent mental health issues.
