Someone is going to die today this is a fact of life that we face every waking moment, the fact that death has not chosen you today is something to be grateful for.

Gratitude helps put into perspective the abundance you have in your life.

  • Nothing lasts forever -Momento Mori
  • Focus on living a deeply fulfilling life
  • It's about the depth, not the length of your life that is important.

Humans are thrill-seekers, the physical being wants to be fed with dopamine fillers, there is no need to feel guilty about that but too much of anything is not good for anyone. 

As much as we want to feel good physically it is important to "feed the soul".

Don't just chase the dopamine

• Push yourself to the limit- explore yourself and your limits

• The human experience is finite so go on and live it to the fullest by socializing, and exercising whatever gets you going besides the screens.

More than anything fear is a friend. Consider how fear is just your mind making you aware of the danger. This has been an attribute of human nature since the dawn of time.

Think of fear as a caring friend that doesn't want to see you getting hurt

According to Marcus Aurelius, the antidote to anger is kindness.

Yes, anger is a response but it is not the healthiest response to the situation.

Whenever you're angry :

• Take a moment(count to 10 if you must)

• It's best not to react to the situation if you're angry

• Remove yourself from the situation and come back when you're calm.

• Cooler heads will prevail.

• An angry reaction is not a sign of strength or power -its a loss of self-control.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone
