Reflection is important. It’s not something that should only happen at the end of each year, though. But must become an attitude towards life. At every step of the journey, we should stop, get back to the present, reflect, take some decisions, make sure we’re doing what’s right, and then continue.
To help you with that in the new year, I found an app that can become your daily reflection journal – Kyo, only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
What is Kyo App?
According to its creators, ‘KYŌ is a personal daily reflection app. We help fuel your daily reflection through questions from some of the most inspiring figures in the world.’
It’s a tool that helps you reflect in the company of your idols, and that’s one of the things I like about it the most. One of the names associated with it is Leo Babauta, someone who’s been inspiring me on my personal journey over the years through his blog ZenHabits.
The Importance of Daily Reflection
Daily reflection is something the people I consider my mentors have relied on since they can remember. Let’s take Tim Ferriss, for instance. He shares that reflective writing is the most cost-effective therapy he’s ever found.
A question is a powerful thing when presented at the right time and by the right person.
And by providing a guided approach and platform that loops in people’s’ idols, like Kevin Rose, Om Malik, Leo Babauta, with Kyo App we can unlock an entirely new depth of reflection. One we’ve never really seen anywhere before.
KYŌ is Japanese for ‘today’.
There’s really no other day more important than today, and no other moment more precious than this one. And that’s what the creators of the Kyo App have tried to remind us of, by leveraging technology to fit into our lives, instead of adding one more thing that we need to fit into our days.
How Does Kyo Work?
Let’s take a look inside the reflection journal tool.
For a start, what are the goals of the app? Well, they are connected to mind, body, and spirit. Kyo aims to lower your anxiety and stress, increase clarity and focus, and stimulate creativity.
Kyo helps you ask the right questions at the right time. It gives you all entries in one place and provides guidance from experts around the world.
Anyone can use KYŌ for FREE. You will be able to create entries, use KYŌ prompts and see all interviews.
However, monthly and yearly plans give full access to KYŌ’s entire collection of custom question packs and “how-to” content plus additional features like custom reminders on your questions.
The two auto-renewing subscription options are:
- $2.99 per month
- $24.99 per year.
Are you ready to make reflection part of your days?
I do believe a single app like Kyo can help us be more mindful, find answers to the deeper questions, and – ultimately – find direction and achieve more.
If you are in need of some clarity and focus too, make sure to check out the app on the App Store.
