1. No Zero Days (Android, iOS): One Small Step Every Day
No zero days have a fresh and positive lifestyle. The app's philosophy is to recognize that no matter how useless one day works, you can make a difference by making one small step.
It divides your day into four steps: The Cabinet, Helped, Learned, and Health. Every day, when you do the least that goes against one of these four categories, press that button. You can long press the button to write a note about what you did or even change the tab completely. In the beginning you can go back a week to add what you achieved in days before you installed the app.
The idea is to realize that even if one day feels really useless, you can turn it around by achieving a little. Get the feeling of having a "zero day" where you don't achieve anything.
Even with ten minutes left on the clock, you can do ten tricks or write a journal or learn something on the internet. That's all it takes to start a chain of "zero zero days" and stick to it.

2. Nao (Android, iOS): Mood Tracking Journal With Voice Notes
Nao duplicates itself as an emotional diary, but one that you can also become a support blog from a social network of similar people looking for positivity. There are three aspects to Nao that make it worth checking out.
At basic level, there is a simple mood tracking. Choose from one of five moods you currently feel, and the app will change color to reflect it. It will keep that color until you change it again.
When you change the mood, you are prompted to add a voice note of what has made you that way. Nao also transcribes the note into text, so you are saved from writing, but get to see it quickly.
Finally, you can choose to make the note public or private. If you make it public, other Nao users can see what you said and comment on and give you the support you need. The app also has a chat bot for this.
And yes, you can also check out what other Nao users feel and give some help, making it a support-based social network of positivity.

3. Clear Your Cup (Web): Daily Microblogging of Positive Wisdom
It's an old Bruce Lee story. A learned man goes to a Zen teacher and disturbs him all the time. The Zen master picks up tea, and continues to pour even when it goes over. The man protests, and the master points out that the man is much like the tea cup. "If you don't empty your cup first, how can you taste my tea?"
Niklas Goeke offers such stories of wisdom and positivity in a daily microblogging on the Empty Your Cup. You can visit the blog or subscribe to have it delivered to your inbox. Goeke covers a variety of topics every day, including weekends. There is a small dose of goodness in the trials and tribulations that life throws at you.
Of course, Goeke is not the only one offering this. If his stories don't like you, try these other inspiring sites for your days.
4. Skills (Android, iOS): Mindfulness and Stress Reduction Games
Skills are a group of 13 games that focus on mindfulness and stress tolerance. The games are based on Dr. Martin Bohus, one of the leading psychotherapists in dialectical behavioral therapy. A clinical study shows that these skills games were useful in 82% of the players.
The 13 games vary significantly and address various aspects of mental health. For example, in one game you have to tilt the phone to make a ball fall to the next level, or use the ball to crash into the bubbles and spread them. In another game, a progress bar begins to fill up or a countdown timer starts, and then the screen turns black; You have to guess when it comes to ending and pressing at that time.
Each game has different purposes. The app limits you to one game at the beginning, but you can unlock them for free if you play repeated games repeatedly. The more you play, the more games will unlock and you get some mental health care. If you prefer to unlock immediately, you can pay a small fee.

5. Care Cards (Web): Positive Self-Care Reminders
When you are trapped in the rat race, you go out to be more productive and do as much as possible. But while taking care of your tasks, you can forget to take care of yourself. Care cards are here to send self-care reminders.
Care card is a web app optimized for mobile, which you can also turn into an app on your phone. The cards have a soothing and calming design and have helpful tips for taking care of yourself. For example, it can be an ego boost, like a card that says you are a strong person who can achieve something. Or it can be a reminder to just smile, since science says this little action makes your body free chemicals that make you happy.
You may want to enter Care Cards on your home page or New Tab page to get a few selections -me-ups each time. I would also suggest making it an app on your phone and keeping it on your home screen so you can increase your day with a quick push.
Scheduled Healthy Reminders
No matter which app is ideal for you to manage your mental health, start that app and go through the process is up to you. Therefore, you must focus on self-care and set reminders for healthy practices.
