You can connect with Ajivar artificial intelligence (AI) 24/7 to understand your feelings and improve your emotional intelligence (EI). The Real YOU community is a peer-to-peer support network also available 24/7.
Ajivar Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Using AI and machine learning (ML), Ajivar delivers a personalized EI curriculum combined with techniques based in mindfulness and Positive Psychology. The Ajivar platform interacts with the user in a text-based conversational format similar to interactions users can have with Alexa, Google assistant, Cortana, etc. During these interactions, the information gathered by Ajivar helps it learn about the individual and the community the individual belongs to. The Ajivar app provides fun and uplifting ways to engage the user such as positive affirmations (Posimations), journaling, and Ooz (out of zone) challenges that help people get outside of their comfort zone to increase self-esteem and acceptance. The Services do not include the provision of medical care, mental health services or other professional services.

Guidelines for Real YOU Community Use
Protecting Our Users on the Real YOU Community
Nobody likes getting hate messages when asking for help. So, take note and reply with love.
Listening and questioning is a remarkable way to help someone. Do not try to solve problems of others. Most of the time, people are just looking for someone with whom they can share their feelings.
We can help others as no specific skills are required to help, just attentive listening to others is required.
The solution that is suitable for one might not work for another. Kindly refrain from suggesting certain self-help approaches (including religion) recommend looking for something beneficial and workable that proves helpful for them.
Check out the Ajivar volunteering program for guidelines and tips to support someone online.
We Respect Everyone
The Real YOU platform makes the users feel comfy and secure while sharing their stories, thoughts, feelings and challenges without concern. If someone is courageous enough to share their feelings, all we ask from you is to act sympathetically, with understanding and avoid being judgmental.
Posts that aim to degrade or abuse others shall be deleted including posts causing damage to the reputation of other users.
Keeping it clean
At times, Real YOU users post something about topics that can provoke others. Ajivar encourages you to express yourself without being abusive, insulting or using profanity. Sexist, racist, homophobic or transphobic posts are forbidden and shall be immediately removed. Similarly, sexually unambiguous posts, and dating requests shall be removed. Ajivar is not the right platform for all this.
Posts portraying graphic violence or abuse can be disturbing for others and shall be deleted. Posts supporting illegal or criminal acts shall also be removed.
At times life becomes difficult , and Ajivar helps you in coping with it. Share the good and bad, and share your problematic emotions however, talking about risky, hazardous or violent acts is not allowed as such posts can be hazardous and sparking to others.
Posts promoting or encouraging self-injury or suicide are not permitted.
You are permitted to share your views about self-harm and suicide however, sharing graphic descriptions, and details regarding methods and planning is a STRICT NO.
Also, Ajivar advises you not to explicitly talk about calories, weights, quantities of food eaten, weight loss images or techniques of gaining or losing weight.
Ajivar does not permit suicidal or self-harm posts – in case you require assistance, please get in touch with your local support service, call the emergency services or go to your nearest emergency room. Press the CRISIS RESOURCES button in the Real YOU Settings of the app for more information.
We take care of ourselves
We urge you to care for others when you can but do not overindulge. If things get out of hand, please get professional assistance. Please also be cautious about sharing personal information in the Real YOU community since it is a community platform.
Staying on track
