Who is DAYCATCHER?

DAYCATCHER was founded in 2017 and went live in November 2018 with the community platform. A Swiss start-up from seasoned professionals for mature adults.

What is DAYCATCHER?

DAYCATCHER is a digital journal (diary) to record what made every given day unique , shared with others or just for yourself.

For whom is DAYCATCHER?

DAYCATCHER is for mature adults who want to bring more mindfulness into their everyday life, who want to be grateful for the small and big events every day and want to capture them as memories.

Why should I use DAYCATCHER?

The daily entries (catches) in the personal journal make you more aware of the passing of time, enjoy the little things more consciously every day and keep them as a memory for yourself or your family – openly shared with the DAYCATCHER community or just for you.

How do I use DAYCATCHER?

Set a goal (e.g. 30 days) to spend a short time each day in the evening, to consider what was special today (good, difficult, grateful for, surprising, memorable, achieved goal, tomorrow’s goal etc.). You will see how it changes your view of the small but valuable things every day and make you more satisfied and perhaps also more curious about breaking habits.

How do I start?
