Imagine the cutest thing you’ve ever seen. Multiply it by ten. Are you imagining something absolutely, incredibly adorable? Yes? Good. Now let me ask you this: Does this little bundle of joy you’ve got conjured up in your head also help you stay healthy? Oh… It doesn’t? But now you’re probably starting to think that something this cute and helpful would be pretty darn amazing, right? Well, then, I’ve got just the app for you!

It’s Fourdesire’s Plant Nanny, and it’s something you should start downloading right now!

Here’s the gist of it: You choose a plant you want to grow – you unlock more options as you keep playing – and then you water it periodically throughout the day. But what makes it interesting is that you’re only allowed to feed it when you drink water.

Basically, your goal is to drink enough water to help your plant grow. To do this quickly, you’ll have to drink 100% of the water needed for someone of your height, weight, and activity level (all of which you will input when you start your Plant Nanny experience).

As you help your little cactus or devil’s ivy grow big and strong, you’re also helping yourself become healthier at the same time! It’s a bonding experience. Do a good job and your plant will be all smiles! Do a bad job and your plant may begin to wilt or even die. So, seriously, drink a lot of water – this is high stakes stuff!

It’s the perfect app if you enjoy cuteness and know you need to be drinking more water, like me. And best of all, it’s free!

So look it up in your phone’s app store, give it a try, and start living a happier, healthier and cuter life!
