If you have followed me for any length of time, you’ll know that self-care is something I struggle to maintain. I was browsing Instagram one evening and noticed a cute little advert for the Finch app.
I was immediately drawn to the cute penguin imagery and decided to give the app a try. It’s free to download, so I had nothing to lose.
Here are my experiences with this app!
Upon using the app, you’ll get the chance to name and choose the pronouns of your penguins after they ‘ve hatched. I named my penguin Daisy and gave them gender neutral pronouns.
While these options don’t have a significant impact on the self-care aspect of the app, they’re a nice option to have. It makes the app more personable to the user.
The UI is colourful, and really adds life to the app. It certainly held my attention. I also like how simplistic the layout is; I’ve never found myself struggling to find anything I’ve wanted to use within it.
Checking in with Daisy quickly became part of my routine. Reflecting on the night before, setting goals and morning stretches have benefited my day greatly. These are only small actions, but I’ve found myself heading into my day less groggy, and a little more motivated some days.
To access more tasks within the app, you will need to subscribe to the premium version of the app. I used a free trial for a week and found it to be an option worth considering. If you don’t want to pay for the app, the free version has enough there to still be beneficial to you.
I have been using the app daily for 2 weeks and I’ve found it incredibly beneficial. I’ve started to notice patterns of behaviour within my life that need addressing; I’m expressing gratitude more, that is such an important thing to do in life.
Finch has been a nice accompaniment to my self-growth journey and a positive app to use alongside the work I use in therapy.
Download the app and try it out; I highly recommend it.
