Inspired by a Bhutanese folk saying: to be a happy person, one must contemplate death five times daily. The WeCroak app sends me random reminders to take a moment to reflect on my inevitable demise. It helps me curate gratitude and remember the ways in which time is fleeting.
Seeing a picture of yourself aged 50 years later is very powerful. If I am in a tough place, it helps to see my future self looking at me. I use this app to age my photos and print a picture of the "older" me to help keep me in check.
