Inhale, exhale: Proper breathing techniques
By Jeff White
There's one thing we all do from the moment we are born to our last second on earth: breathe. We all know how important exercise to our overall health, but breathing properly is just as important. The air we breathe contains oxygen, and when that oxygen enters our lungs, it's transported to every cell in our bodies. The key here is to breathe long breaths, thus filling our lungs with this crucial nutrient. The problem is many of us don't do that.

By Stephanie Studer
People are impatient. A sweeping statement? Sure. But consider that Google engineers noticed in 2012 that a delay as short as 400 milliseconds was enough to drive visitors away from a website. To put that in perspective, that is roughly twice as long as it takes to blink.

Mind Shift
Let's dive directly into the world of educational apps. Our survey suggests that the majority of educational apps encourage pursuit of the goals and means of traditional education by digital means.
