Founder, Unblock unblock.net I used to multitask. I used to procrastinate. I used to check my email every two minutes instead of being focused on my work. I used to browse endless streams of designer news, product hunts, Twitters and Instagrams. And I used to feel guilty about it all. Thanks to applying some basic mindfulness techniques (like focusing on my breath, which started to reveal my thinking patterns), I managed to uncover my deep-rooted anxiety and to become friends with it. Two mindfulness apps that I’ve found very helpful have been Headspace ( headspace.
com) and Plum Village ( plumvillage.app; full disclosure – I’m working on this one).
