Six Times: A New iPhone App for Mindful Living

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. — The Buddha

The Six Times app guides you to easily check your ethical behavior 6 times each day. This simple tool is being developed for your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad to help you to mindfully take small, steady steps toward a happier life.

Six Times is based upon 2 spiritual practices:

  • The first is mindfulness: the awareness of what one is doing in any given moment.
  • The second practice is to recall the advice that spiritual friends have given us — advice to engage in simple yet profound deeds, speech, and thoughts.

Both practices help us decrease troubles in our lives and build up the causes for happiness.

Traditionally, a journal is used to track one’s progress throughout the day. Every 2 hours, one reflects upon a single piece of spiritual advice. For a few moments, you ask yourself: How well have I followed this advice? And how might I have followed this advice better? [Learn More]

Six Times brings this tradition to the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. The app is currently in development. When released, it will be free through the App Store.
