Tired of waking up to a jolting sound of an alarm clock every morning? Then you need to check out Rise&Smile App by Dignity Health. This free app for iOS and Android allows you to wake up every morning while experiencing humankindness from people around the world. Instead of your standard alarm clock, you can use the Rise&Smile App to hear kind words to start your day in a good mood.
I recently downloaded the app to give it a try because I think it’s such a cool concept to try and spread joy and happiness around the world every morning. I love that Dignity Health reviews all of the videos before approving them so I don’t have to worry about waking up to something inappropriate – especially if my kids are around. People also cannot download your videos from the app either.
After downloading the app, I even made my own video – and you can too! Contributing a video is a simple way to spread kindness across the globe. You just make a short “Vine” style video wishing someone a good morning and strangers around the world have the opportunity to wake up to your message.
You could record yourself lip syncing to a fun song, doing a happy dance, watching a sunrise or playing with you child or pet. You can record straight through the allotted time, or pause and start through the video as many times as you’d like. I recorded a video of myself down by the lake this morning wishing everyone a happy and joyful day. You can hear the wind and water in the background, so I hope it makes for a soothing wakeup for others.
This video gives a great overview of what the app is all about if you’re not convinced you need it yet:
