YOUR 2021

HAPPY GUIDE

It's time to elevate. Each new year stretches out a fresh canvas, whether we take this opportunity to rise or stay stagnated by the weight of the past is always a choice. We know how overwhelming it can be to start fresh, so we nailed it down to the crème de la crème of self-mastery tools and resources designed to level you up. 

We're all about the art of self-mastery. We say 'art' because like any creative skill set, self mastery requires practice, discipline and a lifelong commitment to the unfolding of your highest potential. 

“Happiness is dependent on self-discipline.  We are the biggest obstacle to our own happiness. It's much easier to battle with society and others than to fight our own nature” - Dennis Prager

There is no shortcut to lasting transformation and overwhelming yourself with too many unrealistic goals will take you knee-deep into a cycle of guilt and retaliation. A big part of self-love is practicing being patient with yourself and allowing yourself the time and space to bloom in a healthy and sustainable way. The key is to take it step-by-step and day-by-day. We did our homework and narrowed it down to a bulletproof list of habits, books, apps, podcasts and other resources that are designed to nourish your mind, body and spirit with all the good stuff:
