We are designed to move.

We cannot think about taking care of our health (mental and physical) without thinking about practicing some type of physical activity.

At a metabolic level, physical activity is associated with the prevention of cardiovascular, respiratory and degenerative diseases, among others,

and...

at a mental level, we relate it to a better mood and lower levels of stress, anxiety, depression and ADHD.

Benefits of Practising Sports

Benefits of Practising Sports

  1. Practicing sports promotes several changes at the brain level, including the development of new neuronal cells, the reduction of inflammation, and the production of neurotransmitters, such as endorphins, and hormones such as dopamine or serotonin.
  2. Serotonin is known as the ‘happiness hormone’ because it promotes states of relaxation, self-esteem and concentration. One of the most direct ways to increase its levels in the blood is by moving the body!

We all know that exercise is good for us but getting to a point where we feel the benefits, rather than feeling like every workout has left us in need of a nap, takes consistency and perseverance.

If you’re still streaking as part of the 1% Better Challenge – nice work! But don’t worry if you missed a few days here and there. There’s still time to get back into a routine.

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.

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.

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!

Jamyson Haug

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