Remember Amaru, the flying cat that helps you learn mindfulness? Well, I have found another little friend to help you manage your mental health! Finch is an adorable little bird who grows and develops personality traits when you take care of yourself.
I let the app randomly generate a name for my finch. This is Chamomile – aren’t they adorable? You get to choose your finch’s gender, and mine is non-binary.
Chamomile encourages me to journal things I’m grateful for, move my body, and take care of myself. They encourage me to set “daily goals,” but that goal can be “just survive.” It is incredibly wholesome.
Chamomile gets energy when I follow through on my goals and take better care of myself. It’s a great external reinforcer for things that make me feel better.
