Memento Mori

“Memento mori (Latin: "remember (that) you will die") is the medieval [...] practice of reflection on mortality, especially as a means of considering the vanity of earthly life and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits.”
— Wikipedia

“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose […] There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
— Steve Jobs

Enter how many more years you intend to live and Memento Mori App shows a countdown in a display unit of your choice. Available display units range from years all the way down to seconds. It is a digital reminder that our days are limited. There's nothing to fear and no time to waste. This is your life and it's ending one second at a time. It's up to you, what you do with it.


Reflecting on our mortality can significantly alter the way we look at life. At first, we might think that it’s all futile. The idea though, is not to instil a sense of depression, but to liberate and encourage us to live the life we truly want. Please be aware of this and use this app at your own discretion.
