Depressed? Tired? In need of a little cheer or some inspiration? Your Mac to the rescue.
Sure, it’s good to know that Mac users don’t suffer the same as Windows PC users. It’s even better to know that your Mac can cheer you up, add a little inspiration to your work day, and make you feel better with just a click or two. This addictive and free app can make your day.
Free. Click. Cheer.
Yes, we know that attitude makes the day. But who among the growing ranks of happy, satisfied, and intellectually savvy Mac users doesn’t get a little down in the dumps from time to time?
Here’s the Mac app that’s guaranteed to make you feel better with a click.
Guaranteed? Well, let’s put it this way: if Forismatic doesn’t cheer you or inspire you it won’t cost you anything.
After all, shouldn’t an attitude adjustment come with a warranty of some sort? Shouldn’t cheer and inspiration that requires only a click be the kind of self improvement we can all rally around?
The Two Modes Of Happiness
Forismatic is a free Mac app that brings two simple functions to brighten your day, give you pause and cause for reflection, a moment to ponder a moment beyond your Mac’s screen.
What you get with a click is simple. An inspiring expression like this:
Your Mac’s screen will dim, and a new expression will takeover your screen in the Inspire Me mode.
There’s also a Relaxation Mode. It’s similar—an inspiring quote from someone you may or may not know—but you have an opportunity to stare at the quote for an extended time.
See? Automatically you’re relaxed. Except for that nagging feeling you should be doing something productive other than staring blankly at the screen.
But, hey, Forismatic is free. It’s also drop dead easy to setup. Preferences are nominal.
Choose the language (English or Russian—what does that tell you?).
Choose to launch Forismatic on startup.
Choose to change the Autochange mode (10 seconds to 30 seconds and halfway in between).
There’s also an option for the Menubar icon to display the menu or static Inspire Me or Relaxation Mode options.
Frankly, it works. Forismatic gives you a moment to break from what you’re doing, and forces you to relax, and ponder someone else’s view of the world—even if for only a moment.
Not bad for free, huh?
