Dear Co-x3 Family,

This week, we focus on how to get your life in order and improve mental health through self-care.

 

It’s been a fantastic month for our community – here are some highlights:

We have such wonderful members who are excited to help us grow, and thus it was incredibly important to communicate as best as we can what we do here as a community, and how we got here. We’ve made a massive overhaul to our website, including 2 exciting and highly anticipated new pages explaining what we do and the detailed history behind Co-x3.

Our Approach | Our Story

We’ve also made massive improvements to our welcome articles for new members to our community, explaining exactly why we built Co-x3, what we do here, and how you can get involved.

Our Keep It Simple Dashboards have finally been released! These dashboards were inspired by our desire to keep things functional and meaningful. Reduce execution anxiety with functional dashboards that only show you what you need to see, when you need to see it.

Article: 5 Ways To Raise Your Self Esteem

Often, we accept that society decides our value, and when we don’t perform to its tune, we feel bad about ourselves and lose self-esteem. Let’s change that.

 

Constant learning is an important part of your growth journey, and we try to read as much as we can to learn as fast as we can. Every week, we’ll share key insights from the best pieces of content we digest.

What makes this idea so powerful? Being social animals, we often over-think our interactions with the world and stress over inter-personal conflicts. We hate to be misunderstood, and there’s no worse position than feeling like your presence has caused another’s misery.

So today, let’s talk about 3 mental tools to use when you find yourself in such situations:

  1. Take a deep breath and try to empathize with the other party’s position. Why do they care so much? Do your best to understand before being understood.
  2. Check how the other party is feeling about the situation. Are they in the proper mindset to have a productive conversation, or do they need to take a breather?
  3. If they are not ready to understand and/or and be understood, – walk away, and reflect calmly on what you’ve learned. You can’t change someone that doesn’t want to change.

 

Let’s get highly motivated to personally develop ourselves, develop accountability, and collaborate to bring positive social impacts to our local and global communities.
