The Right Reminders

Trigger your mind to change activities with small physical cues:

  • standing up instead of perching on your chair at your elevated desk;
  • moving your mouse from one side of the keyboard to the other;
  • sliding your chair over to a different portion of your work surface.

You can choose how you associate places with activities, but to achieve the full benefit, aim for a consistent link between place and behavior.

The Right Tools

The Right Tools

Have all of the tools you need laid out organized and within arm’s reach. This makes you more efficient and reduces your resistance to doing a certain task because it requires getting up to fetch something. 

If you can’t leave everything out or you have a mobile working situation, carry a bag stocked with all of your essential tools, materials, electronics, and papers.

The Right Surroundings

The Right Surroundings

If a custom workspace isn’t feasible, make small adaptations to your workspace: 

  • Bringing in a small lamp with a soft white light bulb for a warmer glow
  • Keeping fresh flowers or plants in your area
  • Putting up some favorite pieces of art or inspiring quotes
  • Tacking up fabric on the wall
  • Requesting additional drawers so that your surface looks less cluttered.

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.

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.

Jamyson Haug

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

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!
