Self-care is very important for the physical and mental health of a person. It is not easy for everyone to take care of themselves all the time. Hence, Naomi Hirabayashi has launched this app called The Shine, to solve this problem of regular self-care. This app grows the habit of taking care of mental and emotional health in a user. So it actually contributes to the lifelong healing process of that person, which helps him/her to stay always fit.
Naomi Hirabayashi, the founder, and CEO of The Shine app has established the blacks in tech field, which was not very common before. She has got her friend Marah Lidey as the co-founder and co-CEO of this app and together, they have started the community of self-care to keep others in good health. Naomi has initiated the mission of wellness of all people, irrespective of their skin color, gender, financial and social status. Her long experience in this sector of healthcare and wellness, along with the support of her coworkers has helped in developing this useful self-care app.
The Shine app provides inspirational messages to practice meditation for at least a few minutes every day. This app also shows the diversity in tech, as it supports all people to face ups and downs in life by providing more mental strength. Since the types of problems vary from person to person, the self-care program of The Shine app can be personalized to help everyone in restoring his/her mental health. It helps people in their emotional growth, the experience of which they can share in journals, reflecting over the usefulness of this app in rebuilding their life.
The daily support provided by The Shine app helps users in identifying the value of life and also guide them in choosing what they actually want to become in life. This app teaches to give respect even to the negative feelings of life so that users can get over these thoughts to a better emotional phase. It is a black-owned business with the active help of Tiffany Walker, the host of Daily Shine podcast-meets-meditation show. The therapist Jor-El Caraballo and the Mindfulness teacher Jen Kluczkowski also help in the development of this app.
Now, people do not need to spend long hours or too much effort for self-care. They only need to join The Shine group and quickly find the change in their mental health. The first prototype of this app was launched in 2015 and presently, it has over 3 million members in 189 countries of the world.
