Shine Texts You Daily Mental Health Reminders & Tasks
We've been talking for a while about how important self-care is & I don't think that anyone could argue this. But sometimes it can be difficult to actually make the time to do these things. But this new service can help to mitigate that by gently nudging you into making better habits.
Shine is a free app that sends you daily reminders to take care of yourself. It sounds simple enough, and it really is, but one of the hurdles to self-care is remembering to do it. A light nudge from a text message can help by slowing you down enough to think about the things you need to do, and sometimes slowing down is all it takes for the thoughts to take hold and actually get you to do something.
Remember- meditation and the like doesn't have to be a huge, time-consuming process. In fact, it's really all about awareness. It is the things that happen after you are aware that really make the larger changes.
Give it a try- we can all use a little push every now and then.
