Life can be hard and there are times when we all need a little extra help. Mindful Lifebelts gives you 50 short thoughts and mini meditations to help you cope with life’s flood of stresses and strains.
Written by Simon Parke – writer, therapist and retreat giver – Mindful Lifebelts draws on Simon’s lifelong experience of helping people to live more mindful lives by being aware of how our thoughts affect our feelings and our sense of connection with other people and the world around us.
The mindful lifebelts in this app cover a spectrum of negative emotions which can hijack us at any moment; disappointment, anxiety, shame, regret and feeling empty and lost. Simon’s wisdom gently guides you through what to do with these emotions and how to replace them with more positive feelings such as self-acceptance, self-awareness, courage and trust.
You don’t need to sit in silence or dedicate a fixed amount of time every day to access these thoughts. The app has been purposefully designed to make it as easy as possible for you to grab a mindful lifebelt wherever and whenever suits you, making it the perfect companion for those with even the busiest of lives.
Simon’s friendly writing style and kind voice make this a very accessible self-help app. The thoughts may be short but the wisdom behind them has taken a lifetime to develop.

- 50 short written thoughts and mini meditations to help you cope with life’s difficulties and negative emotions such as disappointment, anxiety, shame, regret and feeling empty and lost
