Shopping as a bonding activity

Shopping as a bonding activity

Shopping can be a bonding activity between friends and family members. But making positive connections with people you don't know (offering a cashier a warm thanks for example) has a remarkably powerful impact on well-being and even physical health.

These short moments of connection expand your awareness in ways that accrue to create lasting and beneficial changes in your life.

Black Friday: Using the forced pauses to your benefit

Black Friday can involved a lot of unexpected and unwanted pauses, whether in traffic or in line. Use the pauses to practice being in the moment.

Check out the setting around you. How do the people look? Even notice the products displayed in the stored. Really take it all in. Then notice your breath, how you feel. If you’re shopping at home, pause while the images load to gaze out a window, take three deep breaths, and notice the world outside the screen.

Savor pleasure wherever it arises

Our brains are wired for pleasure, and we can find it in many different pursuits and at many different levels.

Shopping offers plenty of opportunities for savoring: from your mochaccino pit stop to the sense of satisfaction you feel when you’ve crossed something off your gift list.

Gift selection: a way to focus on your relationships

Gift-giving inspires us to think about others and what they would really like to receive. Take a moment before you pay to consider your partner’s/friend's or family member's preferred method of receiving, and how that would best translate into a material object or an experience.

Even couples who have been together forever get gifts wrong all the time; we tend to choose presents for others that we’d want to receive ourselves.

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!

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.

samz905

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

Jamyson Haug

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

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.

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!
