Yoyuu

Yoyuu – Japanese word that helps convey the idea of feeling ready for whatever the world might throw at you next.

Yoyuu is a conversational journaling app for achieving better focus and mindfulness. Our fast paced lifestyles make it hard to reflect on everything that happen and appreciate all the achievements and experiences. Yoyuu wants to help people put their days into perspective and help being more mindful and grateful for the experiences and relationships in our lives.

Interface is in the form of a simple, intuitive and conversational journal because the most effective way to achieve goals and stay on track with focus and aspirations is to reflect on them in the morning before the everyday hustle and bustle begin. Daily writing clarifies thinking, helps reflect on everyday situations and challenges, creates new ideas and, eventually, can be life-changing.

As this is a conversational UI app, we have a bot that talks to you in a thoughtful, friendly way and, in a way, he/she is your friend. The bot empowers you in the morning, reminds you of your focus, aspirations and other things you want to achieve during the day, gives you thumbs ups if your day was good, but also gives you a meaningful advice if your day went bad. In a way, bot is your life-coach.
