Write a journal

Not everybody find journaling easy. The trick is to limit the time you write and find out the best way that works for you. 

You can write for 5 minutes a day in a journal or in you phone's notes section, it's up to you. 

Yvonne Thomas says:

"Writing can help frame your daily outlook to be more positive because you do not just see what’s wrong or missing in your life; rather, you are consciously recognizing what you have that you appreciate and feeling good about those things.”

3-minute a day mindfulness practice

Try to find everyday 3 minutes to sit, breath and relax. "The goal is to create a practice rather than an intention" says Stensby.

Don't start with a 30 minute a day meditation because you will lose interest and motivation. Instead meditate for just 3 minutes, it will be easier and it will become quickly an habit.

Pick a word or a theme

Decide your year's theme. ( What area of your life do you want to improve?) For example if it is your health you can say yourself these questions:

  • What would I need to do, be, and have in order to have more well-being in my experience?
  • Will this decision make me healthier and happier—or not?

Burn away negativity- literally

write down anything from the previous year that felt burdensome or distressing, including ideas, ways of thinking, habits, beliefs about yourself, or views about the world. Then, safely, create a fire and burn what you've wrote.

This is a symbolic way to make space for the new year and to start with an improved mindset.

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

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!

Jamyson Haug

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!
