Shine Texts You Daily Reminders and Mental Health Tasks
Self-care is important to your productivity and mental health, but it’s easy to overlook. Shine is a free app that sends you daily reminders to take care of yourself.
You don’t need to download Shine to use it. Just send them your phone number to get started. They never sell or share your data and you can opt out at any time by texting them “QUIT”. Once you sign up, you will receive a text that asks you a few questions about your mental health goals, such as being more assertive, confident, or creative. The app will then contact you every day with a practice or exercise to be completed. For example, my first exercise was to write down or talk about what worries me at the moment.
You can also track your progress towards more specific goals, such as ” keep a diary more often.” “Personally, I find the app a helpful reminder to just take the time to take care of yourself. You can just as easily create a notification on your phone to meditate or take a walk, but I love that the app offers you a specific exercise. I am more likely to find a time when it is a specific task that changes every day. To verify this, follow the link below.
