Using this app you can participate in Awareness Training (AT) according to Andries J. Kroese. Mindfulness is intentional awareness. Therefore mindfulness training and AT are closely related.
AT is concerned with alert relaxation of mind and body, but even more so with reprogramming the mind/body from negative thoughts and habits to a more stress reducing lifestyle. AT is a self-developing process by being aware of our thoughts, feelings and behavior. The type of awareness we are using was called by J. Krishnamurti “choiceless awareness”, a way of looking at the events of living with an open, non-judgmental mind.
With AT we practice to accept the waves of life, instead of protesting against them. We learn how to surf on them, using their energy to get into the flow of life. The key to this is living in the NOW, the present moment from moment to moment.
To be able to keep our balance in stormy weather, we have to set aside time to practice AT under quiet, peaceful circumstances.
In this app you will find practical awareness exercises which you can use for your personal training:
1. Introduction (3:58 min)
2. Awareness meditation (23:42)
3. Body scan meditation (18:04)
4. Awareness yoga (24:11)
5. AT in daily life (3:55)
consume more than two cups of coffee, tea, cola or chocolate a day? (these all contain caffeine)
feel fatigued on and off during the day?
experience extreme emotional mood swings during the day?
suffer from frequent headaches?
suffer from acidity or heartburn?
suffer from a burning sensation, fatigue and heaviness in the eyes?
suffer from premenstrual syndrome? (for women)
have difficulty falling sleep?
wake up in the morning feeling dead tired?
get irritated easily?
suffer from irregular or rapid heartbeats?
often feel dizzy?
have high blood pressure problems apart from anxiety problems?
have problems concentrating without your regular cup of coffee?
find your hands trembling?
If you answered 'yes' to even some of the above you may have been abusing caffeine - or perhaps I should say 'it has been abusing you' !
Don't get me wrong - many of us use caffeine to little ill effect. Coffee is great in the same way as sunbathing - in moderation!
Caffeine is the most widely used drug in the world and it's no coincidence that its use has increased alongside longer working hours. For most healthy adults 200-300 milligrams a day (about two cups of coffee) is fine .
But too much caffeine (three cups of strong coffee or more) can lead to insomnia, anxiety osteoporosis, diabetes, ulcers, PMS, stroke, heart disease and may be linked to certain types of cancer.
Other common symptoms are migraines and exhaustion, as caffeine dehydrates and overstimulates your adrenal glands. This leads to an inevitable 'energy crash' - which you may have wrongly interpreted as a cue for another cup! Caffeine abusers say they often feel 'exhausted but edgy' at the same time. Caffeine can simultaneously prevent you getting rest - compounding the effect.
Overcoming Caffeine Addiction will help wean you off the caffeine habit slowly and steadily. If you have had a chronic problem with caffeine addiction, the help of a dietician will also be invaluable.
As with any drug, you may experience withdrawal symptoms as you cut down, so it is important to cut back gradually. If in doubt consult a doctor or nutritionist.
Overcome Caffeine Addiction will enable you to do all the things you used to feel couldn't be done without coffee - such as taking a break or getting down to work. When your unconscious mind gets the message that your body really doesn't need - or want - another cup of coffee, then you'll find it easy to cut down or even to stop entirely.
Overcome caffeine addiction will focus on freeing you from the viscious cycle of excess caffeine and give you the sense that you can take or leave it.

1 - BREATHING EXERCISE -- This simple voice-guided exercise will help you learn to breath in a natural, easy way. Instead of a complicated exercise in which you have to count, pause, or breathe in a particular way, this exercise uses an intuitive approach. It guides you to tune into your body and discover your own, natural way of breathing. The exercise is pleasurable to do and you'll look forward to doing it rather than feeling it's a chore.
2 - FOUR BREATHING BREAK AUDIOS -- These audios are designed for brief breathing breaks during the day. There are four to choose from, each with a different focus -- Basic Breath Awareness, Deep Breathing, Pleasure Breathing, and Belly Breathing.
3 - BREATHING REMINDERS -- Do you ever notice that you hold your breath when you're concentrating on something or feeling stressed? It's very common! Our muscles tense when stressed and our breathing becomes constricted or even stops. All it takes is a simple reminder to get you to relax and breathe more deeply. You can choose when you wish to be reminded, and choose from voice prompts, sounds or use the silent mode and receive visual reminders only.

It is said that a true Qigong Master breathes only five times per minute. You too can breath like a Qigong Master, but without the need to count the seconds between each interval.
Designed for deep meditation, enhanced focus and anti-stress, the Zen Breath Meditation is here to help you practice breathwork easily and effortlessly, by reminding you of when to breathe in and out. The first level, Level 1 - at five seconds interval, and the last level, Level 5 - at twelve seconds interval. Now with a timer!
Be it through sound audio, vibrating or blinking in a dark room, the Zen Breath Meditation alarm system will remind you of when it is time to inhale and exhale your breath.
Try breathing with your navel and always remember to exhale properly by using your stomach muscles to press all of the old and used air - out of your system. That way you only get fresh oxygen on each inhaling breath.
Level 1 and 2 out of all five levels; is free. Support us and get all the levels, and be sure to look out for possible future updates.
You will be amazed at how calm you will feel after only a few minutes or even instantly of practicing deep long breaths. Try it, and enjoy!
