Best app for staying in the present and helping you with current tasks

I have been trying so much lately to get back to my spirituality and learning and questioning things in this new world and also I have been struggling with money and bills, relationships, and bad family. I have been able to use Headway to give me important exerts from really good books that focus on exactly what I am trying to have or manifest or, continue and get what I desire in this life I went from being stuck in bed to having hope and duties and we have already manifested the Camper of our dreams as we wait for Job to move us to the place of our dreams where we can then decide if we want to make roots there or somewhere else, but we will be getting a piece of land that has a creek and is in the mountains. We will have Airbnb all over it ready to take care of any parent or grandparents that need homes or special care and also any addicts probably just a couple with a child and a DCFS case to help reform DCFS and help those parents get better, while letting them work into our little farm or giving back to the land, wherever we are helping animals by plant trees that are native to the area and getting to give back to people going through horrible things in life that I can help them with. Hopefully through all this I can attract my daughter back into my life and be and feel whole again!

nerdy black girls unite!!

This app has changed my life tremendously. Most of my screen-time on my phone is from this app. I have told all my friends about it. I read more than 93% of Headway readers w/ a goal of 38min/day, but i find myself listening to Headway w a headphone in while I’m cooking, doing laundry, cleaning, during flights and on long walks too. I have the motivational “quote of the day” widget on the home page of my phone that is the first thing i see on my phone and really sets my intention for that day! Next, I want to start taking notes on the books i am reading ! I find myself reading a lot of the books twice to pick up anything i missed or ingrain it into my mind with spaced repetition. I also find doing anything else on my phone like watching silly vids so boring compared to learning something new on here! I find myself being an overall better person. You are making our lives a lot better in these overstimulating times :)!! My favorite topics are technology, psychology, and self-improvement. I am an extremely autodidactic person so this to me is the equivalent of somebody getting their masters, except I prefer having a wide-range of knowledge. Thanks again!!
