Mental Health and Wellbeing apps
Downloadable app that promotes self-motivation. When you want to remain focused on a project, you set it to grow a virtual tree over a 30 minute countdown. If you exit the window and try and surf elsewhere, the tree withers and dies. With every tree that grows, you begin to build a “forest of progress”.
An app that plays relaxing soundscapes that simulate different environments and you can pick and choose which sound loops to have active. Use for background noise when trying to concentrate or relax. It also includes also binaural beats which are scientifically proven to stimulate creativity.
