Meet the Mind Behind Mindful Digital Products: Crafting Tools for Self-Improvement & Organization

Updated: Dec 23, 2023


Hello and Welcome to a World of Balanced Living


Hi, I'm Areti, the heart and soul behind Mindful Digital Products. If you're on a quest for a more organized, fulfilling life, you've found a kindred spirit in me. Mindful Digital Products is more than just a store; it's a reflection of my lifelong passion for organization, planning, and self-improvement, all aimed at bringing more balance and clarity into your life.


My journey began in the area of programming and designing computational tools, aiding research and fostering innovation. This technical background, combined with my knack for helping friends and family organize their finances and lives through custom spreadsheets, ignited a spark. It made me realize the profound impact well-crafted digital tools could have on everyday life and self-improvement.

Introducing the Wheel of Life: Your Compass for Balance


Life, in its essence, is a quest for balance. Whether it's juggling work, nurturing personal health, maintaining relationships, or pursuing hobbies, each aspect contributes to our overall well-being. But let's face it – finding and maintaining this balance isn't always a walk in the park. That's where the "Wheel of Life" comes into play.


Imagine each area of your life as a spoke in a wheel. When one spoke is shorter or longer than the others, the ride gets bumpy. This is true for life too. An imbalance, whether it's neglecting personal health for work or overlooking relationships, can throw off our entire rhythm, affecting our happiness and productivity.


The "Wheel of Life" is a time-honored tool for self-assessment. Its origins trace back to Buddhist philosophy, symbolizing the importance of a balanced life. It's not just a tool; it's a mirror reflecting your life's various facets. And the best part? As a token of appreciation for joining our community, I'm offering you a meticulously designed "Wheel of Life" worksheet – absolutely free.


Your Guide to Using the "Wheel of Life" Worksheet


Using this worksheet is like having a heart-to-heart with yourself. Here's how you can get started:


  1. Reflect on Each Life Aspect: Look at areas like work, health, relationships, personal growth, etc.

  2. Rate Your Satisfaction: On a scale of 1 to 10, how satisfied are you in each area? It is useful to break down each area into smaller sub-areas which will help you estimate your overall grade. For example, in the career area, you can reflect on how much you enjoy your work, how are your relationships with colleagues, how is the working environment, what possibilities for development you see, if your work gives you energy and how much you feel it contributes to the bigger picture. If you need guidance for your reflection, you can refer to the list of suggested questions at the end of this article for inspiration.

  3. Interpret the Results: The visual representation on the wheel will highlight areas of strength and those needing attention. As a rule of thumb, a grade below 7 means that this area of your life needs attention. Do you notice any surprising results? Do any areas stand out more than others and call attention?

  4. Actionable Steps: Based on your wheel, plan steps to enhance areas where satisfaction levels are low. Start with defining two or three goals in each area that needs attention and a brief plan with how you can reach those goals. Reflect on how relevant are these goals and how they will improve your satisfaction in your chosen life area.
