We’re welcoming our friends at The Mindfulness App to the open water swimming community, and they’re excited to share their learnings, meditations and teachings with all our Beyond Swim pass holders.
What is The Mindfulness App?
The app offers meditation for you, at your own pace. Whether you are a beginner or experienced in mindfulness and meditation, the app helps those of you looking for a more relaxed and healthier state of mind and will help you to become more present in your daily life.
Meditation tailored to you
Co-Founder and CEO Martin Wikfalk explained how the idea for the app came to fruition:
“While teaching mindfulness courses, I noticed how difficult it was for the participants to remember to do the daily meditations included in the programme. I gave all kinds of suggestions such as doing it when waking up, before eating or going to bed — but I was not so successful.
“Then I came to think about a character in the Swedish cartoon series Bamse, the world’s strongest bear. His best friend is Shellman, an extremely wise tortoise who carries almost everything you can think of in his shell including a ‘food and sleep clock’. This clock tells him exactly when to eat and when to sleep and Shellman never breaks his routines, even if it’s in the middle of an adventure.
“So the idea came up to create a similar clock for mindfulness. Besides offering an extensive number of meditations with world-renowned teachers, the app also includes a reminder function which can be activated at specific times and places. With the support of the app, the practice is easily done in the midst of a busy life and easily tailored to meet your own daily schedule.”
