WHY KORU MINDFULNESS?

The ability to calm the chatter in our minds is a crucial skill for today's young adults who are often balancing big responsibilities for the first time in their lives: from rigorous academics, finding employment, paying bills, and being out in the world on their own.

Our research has shown us that Koru Mindfulness students are:

* less-stressed
* sleep better
* live with greater mindfulness
* live with greater self-compassion

WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING:

“I am worrying less and enjoying myself more since starting Koru. I’ve gotten better at staying focused in the present and I don’t feel so stressed all the time.”

“I have found that mindfulness has pervaded my life. On and off I realize that my mind is spinning and it has become much easier for me to take some breaths and bring my mind back to the present.”

“It’s so much easier to fall asleep now that I have techniques for quieting my mind.”

“Before I took Koru, I never noticed how much time I spent lost in negative thoughts about myself. I think the biggest change for me since taking Koru is I’m not so hard on myself any more. It makes everything a whole lot easier.”

"Mindfulness has given me a toolkit to manage my stress."

"When I feel depressed, I am better able to cope instead of being paralyzed by doubt and fear."

In this version we've taken some pro-active steps to address bug reports effecting a small number of people where log books were not uploading to the Koru Mindfulness server, or were not doing so in a timely manner.

Upon saving a logbook entry, the App will attempt to sync immediately. If the device does not have adequate internet service, or the server returns an error, the App will continue to attempt to upload the logs each time it is launched and every 9 minutes thereafter.

This version of the App also attempts to present more useful error messages when using the "Sync Logs & Stats" page encounters a problem.
