Advances in technology have saved millions of lives over the past century. However, I don't think we've realized how this same technology has really effected the mental/emotional human condition. Anxiety, depression, and mental illness are rampant. It's time to end the stress. It's time to understand ourselves again and bring back the humanity in each one of us. 

What is HNST? HNST, pronounced "Honest" is a 90-Day exercise, known in various communities as a daily check-in/reflection. It is personal and individual therapeutic understanding. Each day you'll write how you feel - exactly how you feel physically, emotionally, etc.

Day by day you'll see trends and patterns. You'll set long and short term goals. You'll create and accomplish daily commitments. You'll serve others and yourself. For 90 days you'll record all of it. By the end of the first week, you'll begin to feel clarity.

How many hours do you think the average American adult spends staring into screens each day? Answer:

Think about it. Technology is taking over our lives - and every hour we spend using it, is another hour inside our own heads. Outside of staring at screens, how many more hours do we spend trapped inside of ourselves? 50% of our day? 75%? 90%? More? How often do we say what we are really feeling or thinking OUT LOUD? 

We've grown up in the days of tech - and after years of being trapped inside my own head, I set out on a mission to get out. After lots of practice, advice from trained professionals, and testing with others who've felt the same struggle, I found the solution was universal: open honesty. Now, I've put that universal solution, into a notebook so others can feel the same relief I have.

Less Stress. Less Anxiety. Less Depression. Just HNST.

Getting HNST. I admit, I felt silly the first time...but by the end of my first daily reflection, I was in shock - I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders, simply because I acknowledge emotions I wasn't used to acknowledging...all my emotions! I acknowledged that I hadn't done anything for myself that day! And so much more. As I started to understand what things I was letting bring stress, anxiety, etc. into my life, I then knew how to begin balancing/correcting them. I cannot wait for you to begin this journey for yourself.

 Shipping. Keep in mind that books have a decent weight to them. If you plan on ordering a notebook, especially more than one, you'll have to pay shipping costs - don't be surprised when that's included in the reward level you're looking to order. Shipping costs vary based on your country, number of books ordered, etc. and start at $5. 

Ordering Multiples. Let's say you want to order 2 books, which doesn't show up as a clear pledge level. Easy. Take the amount for 1 book, multiply it by 2, and you've got your proper donation amount ($40). If you're lucky enough to grab and early bird slot, know that each early bird can order as many books as they want at early bird pricing. Just pledge as an early bird, and enter the proper multiple of $15, based on the number of books you'd like. 

Keeping It Local. Each book is printed, bound, covered, and embossed, right here in Utah. Even the packaging we use to wrap the product - it all comes from right here. This means high levels of quality control, and shorter lead times. You can feel good about supporting small business while you take 90 days to support yourself. Just keeping things HNST.  

Risks and challenges

We've done a short run of HNST Notebooks already, so every detail of production has been sorted through. From the covers, to the binding, to each printed page - everything is being handled locally. This means we have a firm hand on quality control and can assure timely production and delivery. Does this mean everything will go off without a hitch? - well it should, but you never know. We promise to keep you 100% up to date on our production, etc., so you know exactly when to expect your reward. We will always be HNST.
