3 Simple Habits for Daily Mindfulness

Sometimes simple things have the most impact.  Hendrik EdBerg of the PositivityBlog shares three simple ideas about daily mindfulness:

  1.  Slow Down
  2. Tell yourself:  Now I am...
  3. Disrupt your thoughts + quickly reconnect with the here and now

I'll add to #2:  Help yourself focus on what you are doing by turning off your ringer, most banner alerts, popups, etc.  Leave only those that remind of what you need to do next.  Hide your email–and check it less frequently.  In other words, make it easier to focus on what you are doing at any given time.

  • Read digital and analog inputs to control your solution by physical controls
  • Set digital outputs to switch lights and other electrical devices
  • New Display text on an LCD display to create custom user interface such as cashbox
  • New Set analog outputs to control electronic equipment

FileMaker developers are wise to learn how to integrate FileMaker with the web:  PHP, JSON, Javascript, REST, SOAP, etc.  Adding the ability to control and monitor other devices is another skill savvy developers will master.  FM 15 already works with iBeacons.  Add Phidget control with 24U's plugin.
