Holy moley, I did it! And it only took two near-(plant)death experiences to get there! My lovely dandelion is now happily growing in the app’s virtual garden, because I’ve been drinking my full 5 bottles of water the past few days. Probably for the better, since the second half of this week will probably be full of…not water – my apologies in advance for the impending near-death experiences to the Devil’s Ivy I’ve begun ‘growing’ in the app.
I gotta say, I’m still quite impressed with how successfully this app has gotten me to drink more water – “Ugh I want a beer (or cider, juice, or Pepsi…) but I need to make sure my plant gets enough water!” has been a relatively common phrase in our household as of late – it’s actually quite amusing. Gamifying dull tasks, I’m tellin’ ya, it works!
In case you’re interested, here’s the link to download the (free) app for iPhones. Yay hydration!
