You & Others

Take me-time playlist

7 | TAKE MORE “ME-TIME”

Many of us spend our days busy with work, errands and caring for others – kids, spouses, friends, or family. As a result, we forget about ourselves. But here’s the twist – taking care of you will make you a better spouse, friend, parent and colleague. In 2016 – make a resolution to take more “me-time”.

Don’t know where to start? Do the “Take me-time” playlist for the most important person in your life – you.

Relationship boosters playlist

8 | BOOST THE RELATIONSHIPS IN YOUR LIFE

The quality of your relationships are consistently shown by research not only to make you happier, but also live healthier and longer (!). But when life gets busy we often tend to neglect to take properly care of those relationships. Yet, very small actions can get you really far.

Start 2016 with a commitment to connect and love more. YOU-app’s “Relationship boosters” are a good place to start – for both romantic as well as purely platonic love.
