Dutchies love a Tikkie

January 14th, 2021

In the Netherlands, iDeal is the preferred payment option. Although we don’t offer iDeal as a payment option in your account, we do offer it via our Support Department (read: via Marcel).

How does it work? We’ll add a subscription to your account, send you the invoice, and email you a KNAB payment link. Sounds great? Mail your request to and we’ll fix it together.

Motivational stories

December 14th, 2020

At Mindwave, we love stories that inspire and make you think about the important things in life. We added a bunch of these stories as Templates.

Pick a template, read the story, let your mind wander, and write down whatever comes to mind.

Lifetime is back!

November 9th, 2020

Change of plans. Again, sorry. We have to keep experimenting with our plans and pricing until we get it right. And with deleting the Lifetime option we weren’t right!

So, after heaps of requests, we are happy to welcome back our Lifetime plan! Actually, it’s one plan (a Mindwave subscription) with 3 different payment cycles: Monthly, Yearly, or Lifetime.

So yes, anyone with Lifetime will be treated as any other on a monthly or yearly and therefore includes all product updates and improvements.

North Star Templates

October 23th, 2020

We improved the North Stars section today. When you add a New North Star, you can use one of our templates, start with a blank page, or create your own template. Learn more about The North Stars.

Periodic Reflection Templates

October 12th, 2020

One of the best ways to learn from the past, to be present, and to improve your future is by doing periodic (self) reflections. We have some easy and effective templates available to jumpstart your weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly reflection.

Mindwave, just for your Daily Journaling

September 17th, 2020

We changed the Mindwave Essential Plan. If you’re just looking for a clean, effective, and beautiful Journaling App, Mindwave Essential is your plan. Unlimited Daily Journaling for $3 a month.

Early adopters who purchased a LifeTime Deal will still have access to all methods. No changes here.

Retry uploading (iOS & Android)

September 4th, 2020

We improved Photo, audio, and video uploading. If uploading failed, because of a bad Internet connection, you can easily retry uploading when you have a stable internet connection.

Ps. Audio isn’t working on android yet. I’m still trying to find a way to make it work on all Android phones.

Fotos and videos in one log

September 3th, 2020

You can now add unlimited photos and videos in one log (web app). You still have to upload them one by one, but we deleted the limit of 4 videos. We also made it possible to add photos and videos simultaneously.

Change Journal Order

September 3th, 2020

Are you using 3 or more Journals and wondering how to change the order? We made it possible to change the Journal order via the web app.

Add new journals via the mobile App

August 6th, 2020

Today we released ‘multi-journals’ for the Mobile App (v1.1). Different from your Personal Journal, which is always 100% private, you can choose who to share your new journal(s) with:

  • Private – Keep your journal for yourself.
  • Shared – Share your journal with an accountability buddy or friends (comment only).
  • Team – Journal together with your co-founder/co-maker.

Automated Highlights

July 6th, 2020

We’ve been looking forward to this feature for quite some time. Our Automated Reports show you the highlights of your month. We show your stats, highs, lows, and most used moods. Monthly reflections made easy!

The Automated Report are generated on the 1st of every month. You’ll need a minimum of 5 logs to get a report.

Pro-tip: we show all logs with #highlight #milestone or #favorite first.

Click a mood to unveil the corresponding logs.


July 6th, 2020

We help you master your Mindwave by celebrating your achievements with Badges. The first badge is easy: getting started with Mindwave. But it will probably take you at least a year before reaching the 365-day streak.
Good luck collecting them all. ?

Random questions logged

July 6th, 2020

Are you using ‘random questions’ for your daily prompt? We now auto-log the question so you won’t forget which question you’ve answered.

Search & Filter

June 11th, 2020

A small but useful product update this morning. Showing, or not showing, the Search & Filter bar will be saved as a preference. Click the filter icon to show the Search & Filter bar. It will only disappear once you click it again.

Add extra journals

June 4th, 2020

You can now add extra journals (or should we call them Mindwaves ?) to your Mindwave. Create one for your work, business, travels or hobby.

When you add a journal you can choose what to use (Logs, Notes, Reflections, and/or North Stars) and who to share it with.

Your ‘Personal’ journal isn’t sharable and will always be kept private.

Change of plans

June 4th, 2020

A change in plans. Literally! We deleted two of our plans. No more Free plan. No more Team plan. This is what we’re gonna do instead:

  • One plan, a Mindwave subscription for $60 yearly or $9 a month.
  • Everyone starts with a free 14-day trial. No limits, no strings attached, and no credit card needed.

Read the full story here.

Reminders at a random time

May 7th, 2020

This is a new feature on my personal request. I would love to do some Mindful experiments with ‘time’. So we’ve made it possible to get a reminder on a random time. Together with the ability to change the prompt I (and you) can do experiments like:

– What are you doing right now?
– Picture your moment!
– Penny for your thoughts!

Weekly Digest for Teams

May 7th, 2020

If you’re using Mindwave for Teams you now got the ability to turn on/off a weekly digest. You’ll get the Team’s highlights in your mailbox, every Friday at 19:00. A great reminder for your check-in and a trigger to reply and support others.

You can opt-in for the Weekly Digest at the Reminders page in Account & Settings.

Periodic Reflections

April 24th, 2020

You can see something brand new in your Mindwave menu: Reflections.

Reflections is made to help you to do (and document) your periodic reflections. Wether you do it weekly, monthly, or quarterly is up to you. We added some simple but highly effective reflection templates to kickstart your session.

Pro-tip: You can also create your own template(s) if you prefer your own format.


April 24th, 2020

Creating Templates is one of the most requested features, and it just got shipped.

Templates will make it easier to write your next Note. Especially when you use a specific format for your frequent writing.

Click on ‘templates’ at the Notes page and create your first. All you need is a title, a description, and the content itself. In general, it’s just a pre-filled content page. Plus, you can even add images to your template. So, be creative and try templates now.

What’s new

April 24th, 2020

Never mis our product updates again! We simply added an alert to the header to let you know we made something new. It’s just a link to this page.

Audio and video logs

April 17th, 2020

Mindwave is getting ready for the Mobile App. The mobile app is going to be a great tool for your Daily logs. We’re super excited to introduce Audio and Video in the Mobile app as well. Hang tight, we’re almost there.

In the mean time, we already made ready for your audio and video uploads. This is how it works.

Small restriction here…. You can only upload .mp4’s. iPhone movies are not supported in all browsers (e.g. Chrome, Firefox) and therefore excluded for now. We have to figure out how to work around this once the IOS app is live.

Log your photos

April 17th, 2020

A photo says more than a thousand words. So what about 4 photos?!
We just added the option to add up to 4 photos to your logs.

Download your original

April 17th, 2020

When you upload a photo in your Daily log we will resize your photo to keep Mindwave super fast. The original size is also saved on our servers. When you click on the enlargement you’ll find the option to download the original.


April 17th, 202

Since we added last weeks auto-forward for Logged In users, it’s harder to find pages like our Blog, Docs, and Product Updates. So we added an About-menu to the Account & Settings page to have everything available in-app.


April 6th, 2020

When you go to you’ll be auto-forwarded to your account. Just like Twitter and Facebook do. No need to browse the homepage every time, right?

If you only use Mindwave for Teams you’ll be auto-forwarded to your team.

Reminders for Teams

April 6th, 2020

We’ve added the option to remind yourself to check-in with your team daily or weekly.

Plus, we’ve added the option to delete a team. Not recommended though ?

Visualize your response

March 31th, 2020

Team members can reply with a gif or add images with their comment.

Your accountability buddy ?

March 19th, 2020

Mindwave users who go for a subscription will get me, Marcel, as their accountability buddy. I will help you to setup your Mindwave, to get journaling into your system and to check-in every now and then to see how you’re doing.
I’m here to support you.

What would you ask yourself? ?

March 13th, 2020

The log starts with a random teasers like “What is on your mind?” or “What are you grateful for?” Now, you can also add your own question/teaser here.

This is how it works.

Note: Team admins can do this for the Team Log as well.

Journaling via Email  ?

March 1st, 2020
