'Sincerely Sunday' is a thoughtful reminder app that is designed to help prevent you from starting Monday on a bad note. The app was developed as part of a joint project between the radio program Studio 360 and IDEO’s engineers. The project is called 'Mon-yays' and the goal is to help consumers feel better on Monday mornings.

According to a poll of their listeners, Studio 360 found that many consumers find Monday mornings to be the hardest part of their week. As a way of forestalling those feelings of dread, researchers came up with the Sincerely Sunday app. The app works by asking you to think about someone special, how they make you feel and why they are so important to you. You can then record a brief message of gratitude and send it directly to their email.

The idea behind the thoughtful reminder app is to spread feelings of joy and gratitude that will help carry someone into their week on a high note.
