Aloe Bud – Self-Care for iOS

Aloe Bud  is an interesting new self-care and wellness app for iPhone and iPad. The app, created by  Amber Discko  (developed by  Lickability), allows you to build a dashboard of self-care reminders for stuff like:

  • Staying hydrated
  • Getting up and moving around
  • Taking medication
  • Reaching out to friends
  • Remembering to be grateful
  • Remembering to take a break
  • Breathing exercises

It’s a well thought out app and includes some of my favorite techniques like box-breathing, a breathing exercise used by Navy SEALS to reduce stress. Plus it looks great thanks to pixel art  by  Katie Belton.

The app is free to download, with in-app purchases available to unlock additional features.

Whether you’re having a stressful day at work or you’re trying to relax at home, getting a notification that says “Breathe; it’ll be okay” might be exactly what you need to get through the day (or even just the hour).
