Seize The Day

Seize The Day

"Carpe Diem" is Latin for "Seize the day." It underscores the importance of the present moment, telling us to value each moment and to focus on the present.

"Carpe Diem" recognizes the brevity of life, the value of time and the inevitability of death. It tells us not to waste time in contemplation, anxiety or regret.

The core concept of "Carpe Diem"

The core concept of "Carpe Diem"

It means to be active and enjoy the moment.

We spend our life planning and focusing on the future, or dwelling in the past, both of which cannot be controlled. This "Just do it" philosophy makes us aware of our limited time in the world, and encourages us not to postpone things that can be done in the moment.

Hedonism and Fatalism

Hedonism and Fatalism

  • Hedonism states that life only has to be lived in pleasure, discarding one's past and future.
  • Fatalism states that everything is predetermined, so there is no point in planning for the unchangeable future, hence it is good to just live for today.

Carpe Diem and Mindfulness

Carpe Diem and Mindfulness

Though "Carpe diem" is related to the concept of mindfulness, which involves focusing on present thoughts, emotions, and experiences, there is some difference between the two.

  • Mindfulness is a state of awareness, in a non-judgemental, abstract way. It is in the state of Being.
  • Carpe Diem is more towards time-based action. It is primarily in the Doing state.

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.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

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!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
