stoic.’s goal is to help users manage their mental health by providing mood tracking, journaling, and meditation tools. The tools are based on cognitive behavioral therapy, as interpreted by Stoicism, an ancient school of philosophy. The app personalizes the user’s tasks with assessments of their feelings (ranges from great to angry) and activities the user may have enjoyed (e.g. work, fitness, date, nature, etc.) at the beginning and end of every day. The app also provides the user with journal prompts and quotes from Stoic philosophers to reflect on. The app keeps track of the activities completed by the user in the “trends” section. Users also have the ability to go directly into exercises that interest them such as “visualization”, focus breathing, thoughts, goals, etc. Additionally, users can set reminders for the assessments.
