Hello 👋 reader and welcome to my blog!
I was in a moody mood yesterday, so I downloaded a few apps about personal development. If you’ve been reading my blogs, you know I’m into self improvement, self care, and such. If you’re new here, welcome to my self development journey. It’s a rollercoaster (hence the title of my site).
One of the apps I downloaded is called 21 days challenge. It’s awesome! To be honest, most apps are awesome to me when I 1st download them. The reason why I felt like I needed this app was because JoyScore stopped working after 2 weeks of downloading it. I don’t know why. So I had to download a meditation app called Serenity.
This post is about the app:
21 days challenge
What I like about this app is:
1st, there are different challenges (for self confidence, kindness, positive affirmations,…)
2nd, there are daily quotes, like this one:
Gratitude and mindful self-compassion can heal and bring peace to you. Gratitude comes when we are mindful, observing the simple beauty in our lives.Daily quote from: https://21dayschallengeapp.com/app/challenge
I feel during these uncertain times, I could use a gratitude boost. It’s easy for me to sink into depression or go into full blown anxiety on a good day.
Let me be clear about something. I’m doing great. I’m alive, healthy, have my family nearby, have a loving husband and remarkable son, a good roof over my head, clothes and food. I have everything I need, in my small bubble, as long as I don’t go out and see how expensive things are and pretend I don’t know that half of Lebanese are living in poverty. So my ill mood is because of how others are living, because Tripoli is marginalized compared to the rest of Lebanon, because we are headed towards an unending tunnel in general, because the situation in Lebanon seems hopeless, because there’s nothing I can do to help, and I feel like my hands are tied. I know the next few years are going to be a bumpy ride, and I’m going to have to budget carefully because rainy days are coming.
Just staying at home due to COVID-19 gives me depression and anxiety, being alone with my thoughts, without something bad necessarily happening to me, so I find happiness in a cup of coffee, in sunsets, and in this case, in an app.
