Our Guest today is Bjorn Lee who is the founder and CEO of MindFi – a mindfulness mobile app that I’ve been using for some time. I first met Bjorn when he requested some feedback for the app and met him again at a mindfulness conference speaking about Mindfulness.

In fact, sometimes I feel like everything is moving too fast for me to catch up. So listen in and I’m sure you will walk away from the podcast having learnt a thing or two about mindfulness that it indeed is a habit that is worth cultivating.
