Welcome to Mindlessduck.com!

Writing down some of the best materials on meditation, mindfulness and zen as a compilation for my use and also, as your resource.

You must be wondering why this blog is called Mindless Duck. It is inspired by the quote: 

Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but always paddling like the dickens underneath.

Michael Caines

While we may look calm, happy on the outside, we are actually highly volatile in our emotions internally. Our minds are literally buzzing non-stop from thoughts and getting distracted by our surroundings. 

I am just like the many who are overwhelmed with anxiety and stress. It was till I came across mindfulness from a TED talk by Chade Meng that I thought about mindfulness


When I started out, I was trying to find my way in the thick fog of distractions, worries, and negativity. On top of it are endless amount of resources. The more I seek, the more overwhelmed I became.

I wish for a site that has it all. A site that is lighthearted, simple and fun to the extent that adults and kids can read and enjoy the information. Thus, the creation of mindlessduck.com

In this journey, I am writing down some of the best materials on meditation, mindfulness and zen that I come across from various sources as a compilation for my use and also, as your resource.

It will make me very happy if your mindfulness journey progress due to my site. 

If you are here for the first time, please take a look at my 1st youtube video and subscribe to our email for more resources and sharing.

Join us as a duckling in this journey of mindfulness!
