The way app interactions are designed, the user sees highly interactive mechanisms to like, share, upvote or comment, making feedback immediate and direct. The notifications are designed to arouse the user with more variable rewards and eventual compulsive behaviour.

Example: Facebook’s new ‘Swipe to Refresh’ feature works similar to a slot machine arm, making many describe the app as ‘behavioural crack cocaine’.

Self Improvement

The Ego
  • The term ego has many definitions. Sages say it is the only barrier between us and true enlightenment. Whether we define it as self-esteem, self-importance or our arrogant, stubborn nature, ego isn’t something to be discarded, as it has tremendous functionality in this world.
  • The term ‘ego’ comes from the Latin word ‘I’, which Sigmund Freud chose to describe as ‘es’(in the German language), later translated to the English word ‘ego.
  • People associate conceit (narcissism), arrogance, big headedness, or simply being smug with being egoistic. People who have an aura of superiority, pomposity, or pride can also be termed ego-centric.

Regret is a feeling everyone experiences at one point in their life or several. It's a negative emotion that comes from the time we reflect on past decisions and wish we did something different.

Studies show that the most commonly reported regrets involved romance, family, education, career, finance, and parenting. Those in palliative care often wished they lived a life true to themselves, wished they didn't overwork themselves, or wish they stayed in touch with their friends.

Music is related to our cognitive capacity, comprehension, and self-awareness. It is our ability to create interesting fractals.

Love and trust are connected to music as it removes logic and reasoning out of the way, letting the people come into an imaginative dream world. Music evokes true love, commitment, long-term relationships, and emotional connections between people.

That is why we don’t just like music, we love music.

It is better to create your own self-affirmations if you do not reverberate with the whole "I radiate beauty and grace". If you don't know how, here are some self-affirmations that inspire me:

  1. You've done it in the past, you can do it again.
  2. Do it today, not tomorrow.
  3. Learn to love the difficult.
  4. Just get done with it and move on!
  5. So what!? Stop taking everything so seriously.
  6. Stop overthinking and let's go!
  7. I am a finisher. I am almost there!

Remember, self-affirmations are your core values.
