Meditation

It is a practice to control the power of thought and to cultivate more peace, clarity and happiness.

Meditation enables us to move from higher frequency brain waves to lower frequency waves, which activates different centers in the brain.

5 Categories of Brain Waves

  1. Gamma State: (30 - 100Hz) The state of hyperactivity and active learning. 
  2. Beta State: (13 - 30Hz) It is associated with the alert mind state where we function for most of the day.
  3. Alpha State: (9 - 13Hz) Brain waves start to slow down out of thinking mind. We feel more calm and peaceful.
  4. Theta State: (4 - 8Hz) The verbal/thinking mind transitions to the meditative/visual mind.
  5. Delta State: (1-3 Hz) Most of us reach this final state during deep, dreamless sleep.

Breath meditation

  • Sit comfortably in your chair with your shoulders relaxed and spine tall.
  • Place your hands mindfully on your lap.
  • Try to eliminate any stimulus that may distract you.
  • Focus on your breath to slow the brain waves down from Beta or Alpha to the Theta State.

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

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.

Sean Green

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

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!

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!

Ghazala Begum

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.
