Mental rest

People who let conversations from the day fill their thoughts when they lie down to sleep often suffer from lack of mental rest. Despite sleeping eight hours, they still wake up feeling tired.

Schedule short breaks every two hours throughout your workday. Consider keeping a notepad by the bed to jot down any nagging thoughts that would keep you awake.

Bright lights, computer screens, background noise, and multiple conversations can cause our senses to feel overwhelmed.

This can be countered by closing your eyes for a few minutes in the middle of the day and unplugging from electronics at the end of the day.

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.

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.

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.

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!
