Start the day with a motivational speech from WAKIEE
  • Why do I feel demotivated? It could be that you feel overwhelmed or because you lack direction.
  • When is the best time of day to get motivated? Just after you wake up. Not only are you rested, but your subconscious mind is open for business.
  • Where can I find great motivational speeches? Try TED talks or start your day with WAKIEE, and a new motivational alarm call app.

We all have dreams. Some people want to visit space or become a great golfer. Others want to own a new Mustang or a Gucci handbag. For the less materialistic souls, a happy family is the only thing worth craving.

The common thread that links these aspirations is the hard work required to make them happen. But when your dreams are big, the task can seem overwhelming.

WAKIEE is a new app that wants to make sure you keep striving for your goals. It sets you up for the day with a motivational speech, while the habit tracker lets you build a productive routine.

Form better habits

What is the best way to stay motivated?

The key is to set your mind on the right course during the first 20 minutes of each day.

The key moment

In this period, your brain is operating on waves with a frequency of around 10.5 Hz. In this state, your subconscious mind is still open for business. It’s the bridge between dreamy sleep and full consciousness.

WAKIEE uses those 20 precious minutes to deliver a motivational speech. The app offers a library of content from top life coaches, with several different categories to choose from.

Get motivated

After selecting your video, you simply set your schedule and allow WAKIEE to wake you up 20 minutes earlier.

More than a motivational speech

The benefits of WAKIEE don’t stop there. The app has several features that add to your motivated mindset throughout the day.

Set your alarm

It starts with that alarm call. The app does provide a snooze button, but it also gives you the chance to say “no.” It’s a small mental trick that should help you overcome your inner sloth.

The next step is to start some good habits. WAKIEE lets you create a healthy routine that will propel you toward your goals. The app even gives you the satisfaction of crossing each task off your list.

Track your goals

These habits should help you reach your long-term goals, and WAKIEE helps you track your progress. The app has a percentage bar that lets you see every step you take.

“A study done in the last 3 years showed that the brain works at 10.5 wave cycles per second in the first 20 minutes of the day. Those 20 minutes are very important because they set the way you are going to feel for the rest of the day. Why not start it with Wakiee.” —

What we like

Getting a motivational speech is way better than repeating mantras. Furthermore, WAKIEE helps you track the forward strides you make.

Future designs

The prototype designs are currently lacking polish. We’d like to see something a little slicker when the full version launches.
