Turn your worries into a checklist

Pick one or two you can commit to solving by end of the day.

If you've jotted down some things that can't easily be solved, designate some 'worry time' for the day. This is a cognitive behavioural therapy technique that gives you a specific time and place to worry to stop them interrupting your day.

Stress at work can be OK, until it's long-term

It's okay to feel stress at work. We all do! Sometimes it can even be motivating. But there's a big difference between the occasional spike and an endless high velocity nightmare.

Stress releases a hormone called cortisol. High levels for long periods of time can physically shrink and lose connections with what deals with decision making, concentration, judgement and social interaction.

It's okay to say no

Nobody is going to think less of you. Admitting when your plate is full is a sign of emotional maturity. When adding extra work - ask what will be delayed or sacrificed to make room for it.

Take control of your notifications

Checking emails less regularly is scientifically shown to reduce your stress. Turn off automated notifications and choose your own timetable for actively checking messages. Maybe that's once per hour. Maybe that's as little as twice a day.

Blue head mantra

Acknowledge the pressure you are feeling while maintaining a cool, calm, clear headed playing style. To get out of a red headed mindset and into a blue headed mindset, take deep deliberate breaths, then anchor yourself with a physical reminder to come back to the present moment I.e. tapping on wrist.

Write a wrist of what you're not going to work on - your permission slip. Stop. Breathe. Write it down.

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.


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

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!

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!
