mantra-meditation-9-20-13

Deva & Miten take a quantum leap with the mantras, offering them in cyberspace as a free 21 Day Mantra Meditation Journey by Mentors Channel.

Meditation is often suggested as an antidote to stress, but it’s a daunting concept for many, bringing up images of sitting straight-backed on hard floors for hours…doing…what? And who has the time to sit still in the midst of a daily schedule that demands constant attention as it reels by like the nightly news on fast forward?

everloop social network for kids

Everloop is a great alternative to Facebook for kids in the 8-13 range who want to socialize online while still being safe.

Every time I see one of my friends’ kids join Facebook, I cringe a little. Oftentimes, these children are under Facebook’s required age (13 years), but even a young teen often doesn’t use much discretion when posting online. Okay, let’s be honest. Many adults don’t use discretion when posting online either! The fact of the matter is that Facebook isn’t a great place for kids unless you’re watching over their shoulder every time they are online, which is pretty unrealistic for most parents.

hullabalu app

Hullabalu is a new storytelling app available to entertain your kids in an interactive way on iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone. 

A few nights ago, I was at dinner with a friend and her family, and while we waited for our meals, the kids were busy playing on the family iPad. This kind of thing is pretty common these days, so most parents I know are always on the lookout for interesting apps that combine education and entertainment.

locket

A new app called Locket allows you to earn money by displaying ads on your smartphone’s lock screen.

Ads are annoying, but would you voluntarily look at them if someone paid you to do so? One app developer is asking that question. Earlier this month, Locket launched on Android, and this new app will pay you to look at ads on your phone’s lock screen.

nextdoor private social network

Get to know your neighbors! Nextdoor is a new way to create your very own private social network for your local community.

One of the things I love about my current neighborhood is that I know my neighbors. The area where I live is up-and-coming, but not without its problems. I like knowing that I can rely on the people who live in the houses near mine to call me if they see anything weird going on, especially when they know I’m not at home.

unroll me image

Are subscription services taking over your inbox? Use Unroll.me – your secret weapon to get your email back under control.

We wrote about Unroll.me in the past, while it was still in beta, but it’s so great, I had to tell you about it again. For me, finding Unroll.me was a godsend. My inbox was aswarm with subscription services, and the emails I really wanted to read were lost in the deluge.

It’s awful, but it happens to all of us. We hear that little “You’ve Got Mail” chime, and we get pumped – “Who wrote me? Who loves and remembers me? Who wanted to keep me in the loop of their awesome life events? Oh… it’s Best Buy. They are having another sale, and I’m still on their mailing list from 2004.”

click and grow smart garden

Click & Grow smart garden technology makes it easy to grow herbs and flowers indoors with very minimal effort on your part.

The idea of a “smart” garden is super attractive to me. I’ll be the first to admit that my thumb is closer to black than it is to green. Last year, in my attempts to grow some herbs for my kitchen, I killed mint. Yes, mint. For those of you out there who are not gardeners, mint is invasive, like a weed, and nearly impossible to kill. I found a way.

Yet, I do like fresh herbs and vegetables, so I’ve been looking for a solution to my natural plant-killing tendencies. A Click & Grow Smart Garden might be just what I need!
