The More Presence App Prototype
Chapter 2 — The Prototype
Last time I introduced the “More Presence” app idea as a means to help folks answer the question “Are you living with too much there and not enough here?” as posed by Eckhart Tolle in The Power of Now.
Today, I will go deeper into the vision. The app uses a 30-day habit forming window, with daily actions designed to help raise the conscious awareness of the individual. After all, the common tendency that seeks to have us trade our present for the past and future is not a conscious decision. The ego is timed bound and derives a home in the two dimensions where regret and anxiety looms. This purposeful distraction allows the ego to fight the never-ending feeling of annihilation.
The simplicity of the app is reflected in a design that seeks to draw the user’s attention back to the present. Each day the individual is prompted to identify their dominant thought path and gain guidance on how best to bring more presence into their life through the PLAY metaphor.
I have provided a mockup to illustrate the flow of the app and offer insight to how it can benefit the individual with their desire to attain more presence. Your thoughts are most appreciated.
