Do you love organizing and making lists? Do you find that these lists have little to do with self care or your long term goals? Mindbloom is a new web service that provides its users with a framework to consider long term goals. Mindbloom is a web site, but it is also a tool that can help you organize and change your life. I recently had the opportunity to try out Mindbloom thanks to a complementary subscription.
The Concept Behind the Mindbloom Web Site
In Mindbloom, you envision your life as a tree with branches. These branches represent different aspects of your life. The site leads you through the development of your tree. As you grow your tree, you can create branches and leaves with themes that reflect what you value in life. These themes include flexibility, meditation, family and community. Mindbloom’s site has stunning graphics that allow you to visualize these different aspects of your life.
Working With the Mindbloom Site
On each branch, you can grow leaves, which represent more specific areas to work on. For example, the leaves of your health branch might include flexibility, strength and meditation. Over time, you can add branches and leaves or prune your tree if you find that you don’t need a particular leaf or branch. If Mindbloom’s themes don’t suit your needs, you can also create custom leaves on your tree that symbolize whatever you’d like them to be.
Mindbloom is a web site that you’ll want to check out daily. If you forget to tend to your tree of life, then your leaves will gradually change color. This helps you see the areas of your life where you are not yet tending to your goals and encourages you to cultivate those areas. The program also sends daily emails to your account.
What Users Need to Know About Mindbloom
To see if Mindbloom is something that you would enjoy, you can try it out with a two week free trial. A lifetime membership is $89.
The graphics on Mindbloom are stunning, although all of the zooming in and out of different sections of the tree can be a little dizzying. My biggest qualm? There needs to be a sleep category under health for all of the tired people out there.
The process of creating a Mindbloom tree certainly inspires reflection. Be prepared to spend some time thinking about your goals and the actions that you need to take to achieve those goals. You may discover that you have goals that you hadn’t considered and untended areas of your life that are actually quite important to you.
Mindbloom is a simple tool that helps you understand and work toward your goals. The visual representation of your goals is meant to encourage you to progress towards them with simple, concrete actions. It’s an investment in your own organization and goal-setting.
