Rachel’s app of the week: Flora
By Rachel Degginger, Marketing Consultant at Heinz Marketing
There is one type of application I cannot resist, and that is a good productivity app! When a friend told me there was a productivity application that was actually planting real trees when you reach your goals, I didn’t believe it at first. It sounded way too good to be true. After using it for a few days, I was hooked! Not only was I achieving my goals, and growing myself, but I was working to grow my own little mini forest too.
How it works:
Flora allows you to plant a tree from a seed when you make progress on your goals, or when you take time away from your phone. As someone who is pretty reliant on my phone, it feels like a relief to be doing something productive in my free time and doing good for the environment at the same time! However, if you don’t complete you’re full focus time, your tree dies and you have to begin all over again.
My personal favorite feature is the fact that I get to watch my little tree grow. As much as I complain about the fact I am completely stuck, and I know my tree will die if I don’t focus, I think it only doubles down on my goal and drives my focus even further. I can’t wait to grow more trees and do even better with my focus time.
When it comes to figuring out a better way to keep productive, Flora is the perfect option to do good with your own time and do good for the environment.
