Can't Live A Minute Without A Distraction

Can't Live A Minute Without A Distraction

We've created so many distractions in our everyday environment - social media notifications, scrolling the web, socializing endlessly, shopping - that we feel like we might explode. Our hyperactive lifestyles and constant mind-chattering have forced us to develop an allergy to sitting in stillness.

Hot Boredom Defined

Hot Boredom Defined

Hot boredom feels like being locked in a padded cell. You are bored, miserable and irritated.

Hot boredom is that internal groan when you’re in line at the DMV or stuck on the airport tarmac, and your phone dies and there’s not a book, magazine or any source of distraction within reach. At its worst, it can feel almost physically painful.

Hot Boredom Is An Obstacle In Your Journey

Hot Boredom Is An Obstacle In Your Journey

  • Hot boredom is a common struggle people encounter when they first try to meditate.
  • A big part of getting past it is learning to sit with that discomfort, instead of fighting it.
  • Don't resist it because when we allow for hot boredom to exist, we give ourselves the possibility of transiting to the spaciousness of cool boredom.

In order to move beyond hot boredom, you have to feel it burn a bit first.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
