SideStairs — Day Zero

The birth of a personal passion project and what we are going to build next.

What Is SideStairs?

SideStairs wants to be your companion in your journey to attaining stoicism and peace in your life and strengthening mental resilience.

How to live meaningfully is the life work of Sigmund Freud and Friedrich Nietzsche. Their work revolves around the collective unconsciousness of the group. SideStairs wants to incorporate the teaching of great philosophers into your everyday life.

“God is dead” as said by Nietzsche. SideStairs wants to fill the void and gap of the lack of religion teaching in this modern day and age. To build a relationship with yourself and make sense of this chaotic world through your own lens.

In simple terms, SideSides is the Netflix of Philosophy and Neuroscience.

What Does The SideStairs Platform do?

Using the combination of science, philosophy and technology to be an enabler, a mentor and a loyal companion. SideStairs hopes to change a person’s behaviour, habitual and mental model of the world.

The first hero feature of SideStairs is based on the scientific theory on Temperature Minimum. It is known that our body temperature is the lowest two hours before we wake. And that is why it is so important to keep track of the time we wake up to understand our Circadian Rhythm. Knowing our circadian rhythm helps us understand our optimised hours.

The second feature to be rolled out is an Emotion Tracker. Having a mood tracker can help us understand what is our average emotion and what causes our spikes.

The app is expected to launch at the end of June, and it will be free for download in the app store. Currently it is only available on the app store.
