Choosing Your Check-in Time
From: How-Tos & Guides
Levell lets you check-in on your well-being, daily.
By default, you get a daily email at your personalised time.
Most people find it takes a few tries to get the hang of check-ins.
Here's how to perfect your check-in time.
1. Choose a time when you will have 30 seconds.
This might be when you get home, at the very end of your work day, or or when you first get a chance to take a break.
2. Make the decision based on the typical structure and pattern of your work day.
People who have busy days at their desks often find that mid-afternoon works well for them. After lunch, around 3:30pm or 4:00pm, you will still be at work, but your brain will be tired. Levell is a great excuse to take a break.
If this doesn't work for you, try first thing in the morning.
For people who find it hard to predict their schedule, location or busy-ness, checking in at 8:00am or 9:00am is often preferred.
If you have a calm, structured daily work day, checking-in mid-morning is also an option. Setting your time for 10:30am lets you check-in with Levell when you take your first coffee break.
3. Adjust your days and times as your work changes.
If you start a busy project, move your check-in time to the morning, until you know what your schedule and location will be like.
Alternatively, you can move your check-in time to the morning if you feel like you have a relatively calm week ahead.

4. If you can't check-in daily, don't worry.
Some people keep their daily emails, even if their work is too hectic to be able to check-in daily.
They like being prompted, and having the email in their inbox reminds them to still take the time to check-in on themselves.
Other people like to choose two or three days, weekly.
Still other people like to keep Levell open in their browser, and turn the check-in notifications completely off.
