Just Check In Please

Hi, just checking in. I was thinking of you and I wanted to check how things are going with you? The power of a simple text or quick phone call to check on your loved ones can be just the thing they need to give them the strength to get through their day. With all that is going on in the world since the Covid-19 pandemic, the world is in a state of confusion and depression is at an all-time high. It has forced us to completely shift our routines from our normal way of operating by placing a minimum distance at least 6ft in between our normal human interaction and encouraging isolation. Let’s face it, we all have a lot going on in our lives right now but keeping ourselves sane throughout this pandemic is now at the top of our list.

Check Your Mindset

By Andrea Piacquadio

This pandemic has allowed us the opportunity to truly understand and appreciate the value of human interaction we once took for granted. We have found ourselves searching for all that we can to fill our lives with enough positivity to combat the feelings of sadness and negativity. We were denied the freedom of being surrounded by people with positive energy praying and congregating together in a place of worship and alternatively replaced by self-motivated podcasts and online streaming church services. For many, finding the motivation to continue despite all of the new things that have accompanied our life is the most difficult part of our new daily routine. Human interaction and getting out to take our minds off the challenges we faced was our refuge.

Check Your New App

Remaining in a positive state of mind and restructuring your new way of life while attempting to keep in touch with all the important people in your life can be a bit overwhelming. What if there was an app that could help you stay up to date with the people you love the most? Better yet, what if there was something that you could put into place that could help the world check up on you? Well, your wishes have just been granted. A new app by the name of Justcheckingin allows you to do just that. Their mission is to support mental health by keeping loved ones mindful with a daily check-in. It is a mobile app that notifies your loved ones to check on you if you have not “checked in” with them. The app allows users to check in daily by selecting a button that either signifies that all is well, or a help button that alerts their loved ones to reach out when needed.

Reality Check

The app has created the perfect solution for providing a happy medium between calling too much and not calling enough. For individuals who live alone, or for single-parent adults, this app can help alleviate the feeling of loneliness and most importantly, safety. With an app such as this, we can take the guessing work out of wondering if we are cared for and put some action behind our intentions when it matters the most. Mental health is a challenge that we all have to face regardless of our age, gender, race, or culture, which makes it relatable to all. Life has a way of piling our problems on us and wearing us down, having a solution such as this allows us all to have a more effective and simplistic avenue to make more room for our peace of mind. Justcheckingin really has done a great job in creating the perfect solution to fit the busy and stressful time that we are in. I am sure that this new innovation will be just what we need to help cater to the mental health needs of the world.
