One of the biggest problems in the world is health. We are definitely not going to solve world healthcare and we don't even need to. While there definitely are serious medical issues which need to be addressed by medical professionals, there are also a lot of small problems, things like a poor sleep schedule, obesity, proper eating habits, and so much more. A lot of these problems really can lead to serious conditions and a poor lifestyle, if not caught early on. The current time is full of hustle and people are so busy nowadays that they don't consider their health a priority. We hope that Live Well and Breathe can help you take care of yourself. We hope to contribute something good to the humanity as a whole and we believe that this program can bring a positive change in your life!

How we built it
We used Replit editor for coding together and hosting the website. In tech stack, we used HTML, CSS, JS, jQuery, Vue.js, Canvas-confetti, Boxicons, Font-awesome, Moment.js, Combodate.js for the frontend and Node.js, Express.js, MongoDB for backend.
Challenges we ran into
The first thing was that we started late. We rushed the whole site in a few days and just because of hard-working team members we got it on time. Second things was different timezones, one member of our team was in a totally opposite timezone from the rest two which made it a bit hard communicating and coding together.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of how we worked out perfectly as a team and learned various new things. We are proud of presenting this world a little solution to the problem of self-healthcare and we are giving our users a way to take care of themselves.
What we learned
We learned to work in teams and under time-limits. We definitely learned a lot of awesome libraries and one of the team members (I) learned a lot about backend. We learned about making a responsive site also. Overall it was a great learning experience and this project has definitely made us a better programmer than we were before starting this project.
What's next for Live Well And Breathe
We are not ending this here, there's a lot of things to implement in this :
- Adding more tools (like medicine dose tracker etc.) which can help the user to take care of themselves more accurately.
- Working with Notifications API so that users can receive browser notifications about their goal deadlines.
- Adding meditation music to the meditation page.
- Allow using the site as a guest.
- Allow users to add their own articles.
