Feeling Down:

  • It's normal to feel down sometimes but doing little things will make you feel better.
  • Getting exercise, eating healthy, sleeping enough, and hanging with friends all give your mood a boost.
  • Thinking everything is awful when you're sad just drags you down further. Try to keep things in perspective.
  • Let painful emotions flow through you and naming them helps you process them.

Finding Motivation

  • Lack of motivation is not laziness, it's your brain conserving energy when your mood is low.
  • Start with small, simple goals and build momentum from there.
  • Connect tasks to things you care about, that internal drive is stronger than pressure.
  • Build routines and habits to reduce the effort needed for daily tasks.
  • Be kind to yourself. Beating yourself up drains motivation more.

  • Allow yourself to feel, don't fight it. Those emotions gotta flow through.
  • Do self-soothing stuff like deep breathing, baths, walks to cope when emotions get intense.
  • Name those feelings and remember they'll pass.
  • Reach out to loved ones when you’re hurting. Human connection helps a lot.

On Grief

  • The “stages” aren't neat steps, just common experiences people often have when grieving.
  • Be patient with yourself. Healing takes time.
  • Let it out - cry, talk about them, do activities to help process the grief.
  • Cherish happy memories, let go of blame or anger.
  • Rebuild slowly - care for yourself, create new routines.

  • Mistakes don't define your worth. They're opportunities to improve.
  • Build confidence with small steps outside your comfort zone.
  • Develop self-acceptance - you're human, imperfect, and worthy of love as you are.
  • Surround yourself with people who appreciate the real you.

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!
