Dear Sinem,

I loved your article! I wish I could give more claps than 50, because I think you hit that proverbial nail on its head — meditation, movement & journaling are three keys to a more fulfilling life. That’s how strongly I agree!

I would add just one more: volunteering. Any kind of service, of giving of yourself, no matter how small, is a tremendous gift that gives both ways. The greatest benefit you receive isn’t actually seeing others happy. It’s taking yourself out of your own head, & the freedom from the “squirrel cage of self” is priceless!

Super article, thank you!
