Mindfulness Exercises to Help You Be Your Best Self
We're in the middle of a global pandemic and our lives are filled with new obstacles and stress. Right now, self-care is more important than ever. Mindfulness exercises are a great way to slow down, unwind, and focus on the moment.
Here are a few exercises you can try:
1. Pay attention to your senses. Take a minute to notice the things around you that you can see, hear, touch, and smell.
2. Seize the day. Think back to the beginning of your day and what you have done or accomplished. Think next about what you can still do with your time left in the day.
3. Self-acceptance. Think about what makes you feel inadequate. Now think about your personal assets. Realize that you are YOU, and cant be anyone else.

What investment has outperformed the S&P 500 over the past 25 years?
A-R-T. In fact, 84% of ultra-high-net-worth individuals collect art according to a 2019 Deloitte survey. It makes sense—contemporary art prices outperformed the S&P 500 by 172% over the last 25 years. And with the total art market expected to balloon from $1.7 trillion to $2.6 trillion by 2026, it’s no wonder that the price of paintings has continued to rise. But unless you have a cool $10 million lying around to buy a Picasso yourself, you've been locked out of this asset class.
Masterworks lets you invest in multimillion-dollar masterpieces by Basquiat, KAWS, and more at a fraction of the entry price. Recently, they sold their first work, a painting by Banksy, for a net 32% annualized return for investors. If you're looking for a bespoke, non-correlated asset class, check out Masterworks and start investing like the 1% today.
