The 'Aloe' app is currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter in the hopes of sharing gentle self-care reminders to the world. As Aloe's creators note, there has been a significant interest in self-care, with "searches for the term [hitting] a five-year high."
Aloe breaks self-care down into three parts: physical, mental and emotional health with an easy-to-use three-screen interface. The app gives users the chance to set up reminders, check-ins and even daily motivations for the ongoing upkeep of their well-being. With the app, users are prompted to answer questions like "Who is one person who makes you happy?" and “What is one thing you’ll do for yourself tomorrow?"
Another component of the app are Aloe's Community Support Gardens, which allow users to send virtual flowers to one another, as well as tend to one another's gardens and foster a greater sense of positivity, encouragement and connection with others who are committed to bettering themselves.
