Timeless Reminders – A Mindfulness-based iPhone App!3 Comments August 20, 2010 / Posted in Breathe, Meditation, Mindfulness
The numbers are pretty staggering when some statistics say that 75% of people in the United States are either moderately or extremely stressed. I’ve also read that it could be almost 90% of the conditions doctors see are related to stress.
This gives you a little about Danny Friedland’s background:
Dr. Friedland is uniquely qualified to teach the scientific and emotional skills needed to empower clinicians and patients become smarter health providers and seekers.
He is board certified in Internal Medicine, a member of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine and the author of Evidence-Based Medicine: A Framework for Clinical Practice, one of the first books to outline methods to frame questions and find, evaluate, and apply medical literature searches to patient care – now all doctors are trained to make medical decisions this way.
During his medical training at the University of California, San Francisco, where he is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine, he founded the UCSF Medical Student Network to facilitate physician well-being and the compassionate delivery of care. Inspired by this experience, he immersed himself in the fields of neuroscience, emotional intelligence and mindfulness, conducted research on self-doubt and discovered how the powerful decision making framework of evidence-based medicine promoting scientific intelligence also cultivates emotional intelligence needed to navigate stress and uncertainty to achieve a more holistic experience of health and well-being.
I like what Danny has put together in his app called Timeless Reminders. It allows you to create and schedule moments that bring you to “present moment, beautiful moment.” It give you a BIBO moment. (thanks Caroline Meeks, aka Dr Funshine and her Laughter Yoga & Stress Reduction) for introducing me to the “Breathe In, Breathe Out” acronym.
As he mentions:
Stress fragments our foundational sense of health and well-being and all too often drains our energy and leads us to forget what’s really important in our lives. What if we could schedule moments of inspiration to become more mindful, remind ourselves what’s truly important and recharge our day?
Timeless Reminders enables you to collect your most inspiring photos, videos, music, audio and text to create and send yourself personally meaningful Reminders to reconnect you with the wholeness you are and inspire you to take healthy and productive action in your life.
