Are you living the life you always dreamed of? Or is there space for improvement?
Welcome to the ShineSheets – a place to find real, tested, and helpful ideas to improve yourself and your life on a daily basis.
This website was started in 2018 by Amber, a personal development enthusiast who was looking to share everything that helped her to deal with depression and anxiety issues. While doing that, she noticed that people had a lot of questions about other things that are an integral part of what one can call a good life: health, beauty, relationships, self-respect, and productivity just to name a few. So, she began performing small research projects and sharing the results in a form of articles.
A few years later, the ShineSheets is a go-to information source for multiple women who want to improve their lives with easy, kind, and effective solutions – starting with personal development, mental health improvement, and going as far as finding the absolute best way to organize a small bedroom (here it is, in case you were looking for it too!).
In 2021, our team consists of Editor-In-Chief (Amber) and a team of researchers/writers who follow a strict fact-checking policy and rules. Every day, we work to find and present you the best tips, advice, and ideas for things that matter to you.
Our most important message? No matter who you are, how you look, what color is your skin, where you live, who you love, what gender you prefer, your height, budget, your past – we welcome each and every one of you, and our goal is to make you feel welcome and represented.

A Letter From Our Editor-In-Chief
Hi! My name is Amber. I am a personal development expert, life improvement enthusiast and also the creator of this site. ShineSheets is your place to find motivation, information, and helpful ideas on how to change your mindset, become happier, more organized, improve your appearance, and get inspired to go after that dream life. This can be the most important decision of your life – just as it was for me.
About seven years ago, when I was just a young girl just finishing university, I had to face serious problems that have changed my attitude forever. My first entrepreneur attempt has failed, I was facing a broken dream, a severe debt, crippling anxiety, and my dad got diagnosed with cancer. I still remember myself crying in the balcony of my small, rented apartment, thinking that the good part of my life is over.
In a matter of just a few months, I changed – a lot. I went from a confident, healthy and hopeful young girl to a scared, anxious, depressed insomniac who binged on pizza every night just because it was cheap and numbed the sadness for a few minutes. Every day felt like another battle facing hungry creditors, angry clients, and trips to the hospital where I was helping my dad to go through chemo. I dreaded every morning and started to experience panic attacks, depression and a whole lot of other mental problems that were breeding in my avoidance, inactivity and fear.
Yet, if I were still living like this, you wouldn’t hear from me now. It took me a while, but I decided to STOP playing the self-pity game. I promised myself to stop whining about things that made me unhappy and do anything I can to change it. I decided to go after the life I always wanted, even if it seemed so far away from the reality I had.
I did it by focusing on constant, gradual improvement on various parts of my life: mental health, home and time organization, beauty, self care, physical wellness, intelligence and so much more. I wanted to take from this life everything I can, while I can. Now, it’s your turn.
No matter where YOU are in your life right now, no matter what you go through, no matter how big or small your problems are – debt, health issues, conflicts, unemployment, being overweight, feeling unattractive, struggling to quit bad habits, panic attacks, anxiety, feeling insecure, being pushed, procrastination, ANYTHING – don’t let yourself settle with this.
Even if you feel like you can’t change your situation / don’t have what it takes / it seems impossible – it’s NOT true and the brighter day is just around the corner if you are willing to look for it.
We don’t claim that our methods and tips work 100% for everyone, but there’s one universal thing – in order to change, you need knowledge, and tools that can help you.
If you want to change, the most important thing is that spark, the decision to stop settling with what makes you unhappy. Sometimes it’s enough to just really want to change. But once you have it, you need to start gathering knowledge, broadening up your view and start acting.
Even if you choose to do nothing, know that you can always start whenever you want to.
Whatever you do, just never settle with being unhappy. A lot of things can be changed and the only way out of the dump is to climb up.
So gather your strength. Use it. FIGHT BACK.
