1. Finding an absorbed mindset

1. Finding an absorbed mindset

Whenever you find you are losing your focus, stop and speak yourself to be in the present. You should have to do this a few times but you’ll ultimately tell again yourself that you want to concentrate on the study at hand. If you look after this continuously, you will find that you slowly but surely spend a smaller amount of time being abstracted.

5. Give your brain ‘free-mode’

5. Give your brain ‘free-mode’

The human mind is mixed-up with thoughts all the time. Some therapists suggest that we should let our mind wander freely for about 15 minutes daily.

Allow it to think anything and everything with a condition to stop their minds immediately when time gets over. It will help you enhance your focus after practicing a few times.

A medical student!🩺 I’d like to live as simply as possible. I love reading- regardless of what type of book it is. People are wonderful, especially those closest to me. I’m determined to do some good for others in whatever I end up doing in the future.

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.

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!

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!
