Inevitably, your attention will leave the sensations of the breath and wander to other places. When you get around to noticing this—in a few seconds, a minute, five minutes—simply return your attention to the breath.

Don’t judge yourself or obsess over the content of the thoughts you find yourself lost in. Just come back.
If you’re just beginning, it can help to choose a short time, such as 5 or 10 minutes.
While mindfulness might seem simple, it’s not necessarily all that easy. You have to make time every day to just keep doing it. Here are short steps to practice mindfulness
You can sit in a chair with your feet on the floor, you can sit loosely cross-legged, in lotus posture, you can kneel—all are fine. Just make sure you are stable and in a position you can stay in for a while.
We all have a natural quality called mindfulness. It’s available to us in every moment if we take the time to appreciate it. Practicing mindfulness is practicing the art of creating space for ourselves—space to think, space to breathe, space between ourselves and our reactions.

As with mindful breathing, your thoughts will wander.
When you realize that your mind has drifted, let go of the thoughts and return your attention to what the person is saying.
Take notice when your mind has wandered from your breath and put the focus back onto it as soon as you can.
It may be hard at first, but eventually, you will be able to regain focus quickly.

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.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
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!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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!
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.
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.
