How to use the app
There are 2 types of tasks - the weakly tasks and the daily (or so called mini) tasks. The daily task is just a simple question. How do you feel today? The trick is, you have to choose one out of 3 random emotions. This way you have to think out of the box, be a little bit creative. You need to provide a explanation for you choice, but it can be very brief. The weakly tasks, on the other hand, are supposed to be more complex. You get one every Sunday. It is always a question which will target one of the 10 aspects of self-improvement. You should write your answer carefully, because once you submit it, you can't change it. Both tasks are waiting for you at your dashboard.
Besides weakly and daily tasks, you can also use Journey as your diary. That is what memories are for - those are just a text entries with a date. Nothing more, nothing less. You can capture whatever is important for you. Everything you will ever write in the app is always visible just for you and you can always download all your data in your Profile.
Positive thinking is a powerful tool of your mind that can do almost everything. Being positive will make you feel good, as it is impossible to have good thoughts and not feel happy at the same time. It will also slowly change your mind to believe in your dreams which is the first step to realize them. Practice staying in a good mood and you will help eliminate stress.
Focusing on your emotions will help you stay honest with yourself. It's easy to deceive yourself when you don't know how you truly feel. If you are not in contact with your emotions and struggle to recognize them, you will have a difficult time to build strong and solid relationships.
We all have goals we want to achieve, but to be effective, you have to learn how to put the most important things first. You need to recognize what you want and learn how to say no to those other non-important things or you will never get anything done. By focusing on your priorities you will make your life and work much clearer as you will not worry anymore with all of these things which you can not influence or which are not important to you.
Everybody has some fears and worries, it is natural. You can overcome those fears by recognizing them and building better self-esteem. You can learn how to eliminate this little voice in our head that is preventing us from doing something. The first step is to recognize your fear and face it.
Relationships are perhaps the most important part of our lives, but having stable and healthy relationships is sometimes difficult. You can easily forget that the only thing you can change is not the other person, it is you. Build better relationships by understanding others but changing yourself.
Productivity can be learned. Good habits and attitude will make you more productive, it is all in your mind. These habits are about awareness, making priorities, self-esteem, discipline and much more. Practice these habits and you will eliminate distractions and become more efficient.
Visualization helps you follow your dreams. It helps you see the possibilities and decide what you really want. Practicing visualization will help your mind to accept a new perspective and will make your dreams closer. It is one of the most important aspects of self-improvement. If you are not able to imagine the stuff you want to change or achieve, you are not able to do the first step to actually do it.
Self-esteem is the image you have about yourself. It is also the signal you send to the world when you are communicating with other people and which can determine your success in dealing with others. It is obvious how important it is. What is maybe less obvious is how you can build better self-esteem just through continuos reminding yourself of your strengths. If you will keep working on your self-esteem you will be more productive, successful and happy.
Awareness is the core of self-improvement. It can be said that all of these aspects are partly based on it. By practicing awareness of your attitudes, habits, behaviors, and emotions you are making yourself able to grow. You are making the first step. You can not change something which you do not know about. Being aware means being true and not living in a comfortable lie.
Gratitude is a very strong emotion that is worth building. By focusing on the good parts, focusing on your feelings of gratitude, you are making yourself much more aware, much more positive and much more humble. To feel grateful is really strong motivation to become a better person and by focusing on this emotion, you will get a new perspective about gifts of life.
