Things to Consider Before You Start

Things to Consider Before You Start

1. You do not need to buy anything. You can practice mindfulness anywhere that is comfortable for you. 

2. The goal is not to quiet your mind. Your brain is the most active thing in your body, it can not be quiet. 

3. Your mind will wander. It is natural for our brains to wander and that is okay. It is having the self-control to bring it back to focus on the present. 

4. Do not let your brain judge you for being distracted. 

5. Remember, it is all about returning your attention.

3. Notice Your Body

3. Notice Your Body

As you are completing mindfulness, think about the times your body feels tense or uneased. Is it when your mind is wandering or when you are focused? 

It will be good to take note of this for the next session.

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!

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

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.

Sean Green

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

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!

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.

Ghazala Begum
