Venture: Zenit empowers people to take care of their wellness daily through the power of a personalized journal. Journaling can transform our lives, but with a blank page, it's hard to keep up. With Zenit, you can choose the prompts that speak to your wellness goals, and we make and deliver your customized wellness journal. Our prompts are grounded in evidence-based mental health and coaching practices. Zenit also provides "Write Your Way to Wellness" journaling workshops for organizations. We recognize that wellness is a personal journey. Everyone deserves a safe space to process their experiences. Through our customized journals, Zenit is building ownership, pride, and joy in our mental health.
