We kicked off this project in the health space with a screener to gather information on how users become stressed and how they manage stress.

Reoccurring themes in our user interviews: Every person that we interviewed talked about their need for quick and easy distractions from their stress. These distractions often took the form of something "funny" or "cute" that made the user feel good.
