ARISE IS YOUR ROCKET SHIP INTO FLOW! It identifies your 9 procrastinator demons and helps to beat them by getting you into motion! Time is Your most prescious resource, time to Arise!

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles."
― Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Here is how Arise gets you from the dark playground of procrastination into productivity-land in 4 simple steps:

1.If you are ready to rock it gives an initial dopamine shot with a crazy animated timer

2.If something blocks your doer self, Arise guides you to identify your current demon

3.It coaches you to kick the blocker demon's arse

4.Comes the pomodoro rocket booster to get you into motion!

Dominating procrastination is a huge deal: it gives you back the control over your own life.

The first step was to specify the enemies with surgical precision. Yes, plural, because there is not one demon but many - and every one of them requires a special treatment! Mr. Adrenaline-junkie, Mr. Intimidator, Mr. Stigmatizer and 6 other bastards.

The second insight was understanding their true nature. We realized that they are so strong, we must use their own weapon against themselves to lure them into our evil-genius trap.

The last step? To eliminate the blind spot from the system which generates the problem: your own mind. Curious how? Outsourcing the solution to an un-biased medium. Now there is an app for that. (There are countless productivity apps, but no one truly effective dedicated to anti-procrastination)

Are you curious how deep the rabbit hole is?

We are on a mission. We believe, procrastination is a modern epidemic which steals your free time, your money through suboptimal productivity and yes, health (!) and as such it should be cured. We declared war on procrastination and want to turn procrastination into PREcrastination.

Are you ready to destroy your demons and multiply your productive time with the help of this simple but brutally effective app? Hit download and you'll never look back...

Love it! .... so far

I just started using this app, yesterday. I’ve looked at/tried many apps that I think would be helpful. I definitely have ADHD and some anxiety. I struggle with perfectionism. Working from home has been difficult for me, because I need routine and accountability. Also, I tend to put things off due to “all or nothing” thinking. This app targets the underlying causes of procrastination... the payoff. I’m giving 4 stars because there seems to be a “glitch” when I attempt to message someone for accountability. It froze on me, a few times, and I had to close the app and start over.

Great for getting out of procrastination ruts

I usually don’t write reviews but I have had this app for 3 years and been using it all the time as a student and for getting my work done. It’s better than any pomodoro app I’ve tried and is really engaging with the demons and making yourself write a reward before you start each session. Amazing, love the first 5 minute sprint, I usually say I’ll just do one small thing like read one paragraph and you are always surprised how much you can actually accomplish in 5 minutes of focused work. Helps me stop thinking and just start doing.

Feeling Overwhelmed? This helps me get going...

I love that I can just start somewhere, anywhere. The first timer is 5 minutes so I pick something small and feel accomplished right away. Then I just keep choosing other small chunks and take the built in break times.

The reason for taking away 1 Star is because an audible feature when the break or work time is up would take it to the next level.
