In todays world we can all agree that stress is a major factor that is affecting individuals’ daily lives. This stress mostly comes from being in the rat race to make it to the top. With the amount of competition and cutthroat nature of people, individuals cannot really take a breath, relax, and focus on things which are really important in their lives. Mobile phone is a major contributing feature to this ever-increasing stress. Apps like Instagram and Facebook paints a picture of how life would look like if an individual actually makes it big in life. This superficial view on life which mainly includes a lot of money, fast cars and exotic vacations is something that almost everyone thinks they want. Most people don’t realise that this is a never-ending cycle of wanting to have more than what’s necessary for us to live. what people do not realize is that humans will never be satisfied with what they have unless they find a sort of inner peace with existence.
Forest: Stay focused is a great little app that helps its users focus more on things that are actually important to them. Forest can help as a tool for individuals who are looking for a change in their lifestyle and outlook towards life. With this neat app users can completely commit to a task at hand and fully dive deep into completing it. The basic idea of the app is you will plant a digital tree in the app and the tree will die if you keep picking up your phone for unnecessary reasons. The tree will continue to grow and flourish if you are able to stay away from your mobile phone and focus on the task which you are doing. The idea is to keep you focused on something long enough.
