Know your mind

    Learn how your mind works and how to take care of it

We rely on our minds for everything we do, and yet we are taught very little about how they work and how to take care of them. We learn about plaque on our teeth, cholesterol in our diet and germs on our hands, but we aren’t taught about moods, stress, decision-making, creativity – the basic building blocks that make us think, feel and behave the way we do.

At Mindapples, we’ve spent over a decade collecting practical insights from psychology and cognitive science and turning them into books, apps, e-learning and workplace training. Reviewed by experts and tested in controlled trials, this is a new kind of mental literacy programme that can benefit people of all ages.

We’ve collected some of the best insights here to help you learn about your mind. There are downloadable tip sheets, video insights from our trainers, articles to read and links to follow. We hope they’ll help you understand your mind better and take simple steps to improve your health, work and relationships.
