Headspace is one of the most popular applications of mindful meditation in the market.
With a simple and friendly user interface, it teaches people how to sit down and take a bit of time off our stressful life. It starts with a 10 days free trial and then can be joined with an affordable subscription fee.
In this Ted Talk you can listens to Andy Puddicombe, ex buddhist monk and app co-founder, on the importance of having a healthy mind.
- Back to the Future – It has to be up there with inspiration of the month, with so many years past it’s still such a hit. Crazy lace up boots and its iconic font face.

https://transferwise.com/ – A service that makes it simple to transfer money abroad. What I loved about it? Seamless onboarding process, clear value proposition, total transparency in cost and the way every aspect of the service works. TransferWise guided me through my first transfer in a minimalistic, focused way – displaying only the necessary elements. The payment form was pure delight! Great example for all FinTech startups out there.
