Cactus

Boost your mood and emotional intelligence in one minute

People are stressed out and turning to meditation for help. But meditation isn’t for everyone. Cactus combines guided reflection prompts, a private journal, and intimate sharing to help you live a more fully actualized life. And it’s free.

Hey Product Hunters! We wanted the benefits of meditation – less anxiety, more calm focus, improved presence – but we each struggled with the actual practice of meditation. We figured there was a better way to practice mindfulness. After working with a positive psychology expert, we built Cactus. - Boost your mood and improve your focus - Guided self-reflection and mindful exercises - Private journal for your private thoughts Cactus provides a daily minute of mindfulness to help you focus on the positive themes in your busy life. Boost your mood and increase your emotional intelligence with Cactus!

This is great! I can't get myself into meditation... I know it gives great long term benefits but it can't beat the immediate satisfaction that writing out a happy memory or reading a uplifting quote does :D I will try this out, thanks

Wow, love it. Beautifully designed and the execution seems to be very smooth too! I often find myself thinking about starting a journal, however, it just seems to be too much time effort for me. The concept of cactus makes it really efficient and fun to use it. Thank you guys!
