Mindful : February 2015
TECH OR TEDIOUS Sometimes you just can’t decide if something’s groundbreaking or totally bonkers. Our jury is out. What’s your verdict? NOPHONE It’s the phone that does nothing; made to help people with “nomophobia”— fear of being with- out a smar tphone. CUDDLR This iPhone app allows you to hook up with nearby strangers and get busy...cuddling. So you can find intimacy without the, well, intimacy. HAMSTER WHEEL DESK Haven’t you always wanted to live like a rodent? A literal desk within a wheel, designed to maximize your productivity, so you can walk, run, or skip without leaving the office. Things that spark our minds, touch our hearts, make us smile—or roll our eyes. Catch up on the latest in mindfulness. Forget about a cup of coffee or even going to the gym— meditation is all you need to get your mind sharpened and ready to go.” —Russell Simmons, entrepreneur For more resources on health care and mindfulness, go to mindful.org/insurewellbeing Mindfulicious Take a bite of the latest trend: mindful eat- ing. Made from a few organic ingredients, Mindfulicious bars are hardly the first healthy snack bar, but they are the first food product to provide instructions for how to eat mindfully, right on the wrapper: 1) sit down 2) slowly chew 3) savor 4) smile Insure well-being Health-care practitioners and organizations have star ted to realize the impor tance of mind- fulness in promoting mental and physical well-being, and health insurance companies are taking note. That’s why the Health Care Ser vice Corpora- tion, which serves more than 14 million Americans, launched a new wellness app called Cen- tered, which promotes healthy living through activity tracking and meditation instruction. No fruit left behind How many backyard apple trees drop their fruit on the ground to decompose, flesh unbitten, among the weeds? Fewer and fewer— as urban fruit tree projects sprout up around the world, people go around to parks and backyards, har vest other wise neglected fruit, and sell it locally. urbanfoodforestry.org/initiatives Have a Holstee potluck Mindful living and design company, Holstee, wants to encourage communal gatherings with their new Potluck Series. Sign up to be a host, invite a few friends and get some food together (they provide recipes if you’re not too kitchen-sav v y). Once the table is set, post a photo with the hashtag #holsteepotluck, and for every dinner held they’ll donate $25 to nonprofit organization FoodCorps. This donation will set up one child with nutrition, garden- ing, and cooking lessons. They’ll also get healthier food options in their school cafeteria. Holstee also hosts monthly potlucks at their office in Brooklyn, New York, open to all. 10 mindful February 2015 what’s new PHOTOGRAPHS:COURTESYOFHOLSTEE.COM,COURTESYOFMINDFULEATINGSUMMIT.COM,©ISTOCK.COM/MATTJEACOCK,DHOXAX,BRETTWEINSTEIN,COLOURBOX.COM Top of Mind
