Recently, my daughter turned me onto the Chill App. This app sends you a positive message every morning and sends reminders during the day to breathe, relax, take inventory of your emotions or stress, etc.
At first, I was not interested. The last thing I want are more reminders, alerts, and noises from my phone. However, she insisted. What teenager likes positive self-help stuff? So, I tried it. Besides, it would give us some common ground.
I have to say I REALLY like it. I love the quote every morning. I am finding the little reminders throughout the day to be exactly what I needed. They are not invasive or annoying. They are actually helping me. I hear the “ding” and think “oh, I should take a breath” or “am I tightening my shoulders or clenching my jaw?” or “is my mind obsessing over some thought or event?”
This application really can help you become more mindful and more aware of stress acting on the body.
If a high school student can find a benefit in it, maybe you can too.
Try it and let me know what you think?
