Mindlogr is a platform which provides users with a place to record private video logs for a variety of purposes and benefits. One of these is personal reflection and stress relief, and it has now been approved as an NHS mental health app. The NHS is the UK's national health care service founded in 1948 and still the primary health provider today.
This year The Queen's Christmas message talked about a renewed hope for the future and about taking stock and reflecting on the past. One of the core missions for Mindlogr is to provide people with a place to reflect and record their private thoughts, in fact it is practically the only place on the internet where one can truly be themselves 100%, with no one to judge, and no recourse.
The benefits from mindlogging can sometimes seem intangible, yet the process of recording video logs has profound long term benefits which for mental health patients, is a sure way to think themselves better.
There are 8 identifiable main benefits:
1) Process previous events
What happens to someone is not as important as the meaning people assign to what happens. Mindlogging helps people to sort through those experiences and be intentional about their interpretation.
2) Clarify one's thinking
Journaling in general helps to disentangle a person's thoughts. Mindlogging takes it to a new level because one is not performing in front of a “live audience,” so to speak, it provides time to really wrestle through the issues.
3) Understand the context
Life is often happening so quickly people usually have little time to stop and reflect on where they are in the Bigger Picture. Mindlogging helps to discern the difference between the forest and the trees.
4) Notice one's feelings
Most people understand feelings aren't everything, but they also aren't nothing. The older one gets, the more one should pay attention to them. They are often an early indicator of something brewing.
5) Connect with one's heart
Daily mindlogging helps people to monitor the condition of their heart, by that what is meant is that one can truly listen to their heart, too often one loses touch with this.
6) Record significant lessons
Everyone becomes a better student when reviewing the past. Mindlogging leads to an even deeper understanding and greater wisdom so that the lesson doesn’t have to re-learnt later.
7) Ask important questions
A journal is not merely a repository for the lessons one learns but also the questions we ask. So, asking a better question will yield a better answer.
8) Leaving a legacy
Everyone lives and everyone dies, as one gets older in life we often ask ourselves about our legacy, what we leave behind, and leaving one's thoughts, life, and story on video, could be the most valuable things you could ever leave behind.
Recently the theme of the LeWeb technology conference in Paris was "The Next 10 Years", and one of the underlying messages which VC's and futurists were talking about was the emerging trend of self quantification, mainly through fitness and data tracking devices, and more importantly as this trend matures, self awareness of thought.
We are definitely entering into an age of enlightenment, but rather than simply talk about it like hokey pokey spiritualism, we now have hardware and software technology to help us become more self aware and more centred in oneself.
The aim of Mindlogr is to become a visionary product that provides users with a private space on the internet, which is cluttered with social networks where privacy is not key, so that they can find some respite in the melange of Internet chatter.
It is like the Shangri La of the Internet.
