Find a Quiet Place

Seek a calm environment where you can meditate without interruptions, ensuring a space free from external noises. Turning off loud devices is advisable. However, complete silence isn't necessary, so there's no need for earplugs in your meditation area.

Take a Comfortable Position

Choose a comfortable position without overthinking your posture, attire, or seating. Sitting cross-legged is optional; a chair, cushion, or couch will suffice. The key is to maintain a straight but relaxed back. Commit to dedicating your chosen meditation time fully, whether you find it challenging or straightforward.

Set a Timer

Using a timer or meditation app ensures you don't have to constantly check your watch, avoiding distractions. Begin with short sessions of 2–5 minutes to ease into the practice and encourage the formation of a long-term habit.

Starting small makes it easier to begin and significantly increases the likelihood of success. As you become more comfortable with the practice, you can gradually extend your meditation time.

Focus on Breath

Focus on your breath's journey: entering through your nostrils, moving down your throat, filling your lungs and belly. Notice each inhalation and exhalation. You may keep your eyes gently focused on the ground or close them to enhance concentration.

Incorporate counting into your practice by numbering each breath from 1 to 10. Should your attention wander and you lose count, simply start over. This technique aids in maintaining focus during meditation.

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.

Ashley Anthony

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.

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!

Jamyson Haug

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