The Now is an app to help you retrain your mind to live more fully in the moment. The Now accomplishes this using a technique called continuous mindfulness training. The process works by using periodic cues, in this case, free iPhone push notifications with an audible chime and relevant message, to remind you to be fully focused on the present. The ultimate goal being to make mindfulness essentially continuous.
Happiness = Mindfulness. Don't take our word for it, some of the greatest authors, philosophers, scientists, and leaders of all time agree:
"You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment." - Henry David Thoreau
"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment." - Buddha
"I never think of the future. It comes soon enough." - Albert Einstein
"We are always getting ready to live but never living." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Confine yourself to the present." - Marcus Aurelius
You may have been exposed to the concept of the now through reading a self help book on the subject, some of the most popular being “The Precious Present” by Spencer Johnson M.D., “Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle, and "Mindfulness: An Eight-Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World" by Mark Williams. Like all self help books, they only help if you put the concepts into practice and that is exactly what The Now was created for.
The mindfulness training runs for a 3 week cycle, with push notifications slowly increasing in frequency during the course, then tapering off in frequency as you become more mindful. There are enough quotes currently for 2-3 of these cycles before you would see repeated quotes. You can run the course as many times as you would like.
If you would like to see more quotes added to The Now or an update released, please let me know by rating and reviewing the app highly. Thanks, Developer of The Now
