Key Ideas

Commit to doing one nice thing

... for yourself every day.

Remind yourself on a daily basis to treat yourself with loving kindness. It motivates you to take better care of yourself and to go after your dreams.

Listen to yourself

We often criticize ourselves in our own heads and that damages our confidence.

Refrain from talking to yourself in negative terms. Know that you're good enough.

Accept yourself

  • Accept the body that you have today. Try to be the best person you can be in the body that you have, and that's as much as you can do.
  • Accept your income and success level as they are. Less stress with less income can be your answer to be happier.

Avoid toxic people

Avoid tying yourself to clients, business partners, investors, or employees who make you unhappy. 

There's no reason to put up with people saying or doing things that constantly break you down.

Prioritize your health

Take care of your health. Exercise, take supplements, cut out sugar, but don't beat yourself up if you have a treat on occasion.

Stop skipping meals

Letting your blood sugar sink sends stress signals to your brain. 

If you really can't stop and grab a meal, make sure you have healthy snacks at your desk.

Breathe

Simple breathing exercises can calm you down and not let stress get to you or make you sick.

Give yourself a welcoming space

Make the effort to create a pleasant space to make you smile. Declutter and order your environment the way you like it.

Get some sunlight

Working in dark spaces is very unhealthy. Try to change your environment to gain access to natural light, or invest in full-spectrum light bulbs. 

Above all, make sure to get outside for a walk as often as you can.

Buy premium products

Consider buying better quality products for yourself instead of only buying them for others.

Every time you use them, you're reinforcing to yourself that you're worth more.

Being alone during a pandemic

Being alone and, therefore, forced to face our own thoughts, can prove rather disturbing. People need other people to feel well: being sociable is not anymore just a skill to develop, it is a mere ...

Enforced solitude and its advantages

The current pandemic has us facing one of our biggest fears: staying alone, dealing with our own emotions and thoughts. However, this situation has also a great deal of advantages. While in self-isolation, we can use this time to improve ourselves by discovering new hobbies or just developing skills we have already gathered, cultivating our mind through reading. In fewer words, we finally have the time to learn how to deal with ourselves. And this is always a good thing.

The wonders of a clear sense of purpose during isolation

As difficult as it may seem, self-isolation has its benefits. When spending your time alone, the key to handle this situation is to find a purpose in your suffering. In other words, focus on why your suffering is doing good to others as well as to yourself. Furthermore, the fact that you stick to a certain routine or that
everybody is doing the same thing provides you not only with a meaning, but also with a sense of belonging.

Self-created struggles

See life as it is, without all the ideals and fantasies you’ve been preoccupied with.

The vast majority of our struggles are self-created, and we can choose to overcome them in an instant.

Fearing judgment from others
We fear the judgments of others, even though their judgments about us are rarely valid or significant.

Tying your self-worth to everyone else’s opinions gives you a flawed sense of reality because people judge us based on a pool of influences in their own lives that have absolutely nothing to do with us.

Past experiences
In many ways, our past experiences have conditioned us to believe that we are less capable than we are.

We need to learn from the past, but also to be ready to update what we learned based on how our circumstances have changed.
