We are on a mission to simplify the overwhelming self-help industry, one simple tool at a time.
'Simplify your life so you can live'
After years of immersing ourselves in the realm of personal development by conducting intensive research, reading numerous self-help books and attending several seminars, we realised that this industry is lacking one fundamental thing; simplicity.
Through TMS we design and create products that are simple, yet effective, filling your life with positivity and instilling good habits one small (and clear) step at a time.
We focus on high-quality.
A haven for aesthetes, we print all of our beautiful artwork on thick premium paper with a smooth matte finish. Our paper is acid-free and age resistant, ensuring you'll enjoy it for many years to come.
We inspire well-being.
Starting with our meaningful products, and following through with our inspirational content on social media and feel-good packaging, all we do is aimed to enhance your well-being and to educate and motivate you on taking small steps towards a more fulfilling life!
We create research supported tools.
Our mission is to create simple, yet highly effective tools to support you on your self-growth journey. All of our tools are personally tested and (better yet), research supported. This means that our techniques are backed by science and/or positive psychology, designed to help you create a happier, more fulfilled life. We've got you!
We love the Earth.
Our vision is to inspire sustainability and we take this very seriously. All of our products are either recycled, recyclable or reusuable. In addition, our packaging is either 100% recyclable or biodegradable. We intentionally opted for couriers that make use of a fleet of eco-friendly vehicles.

We offer customisable prints.
Our design your own collection allows you to add your personal touch and details instantly, through our built-in custom editor. Pick the colour and size of your liking and enter your own personal details to create a unique piece of art to tell your story!

. Quick fire Questions .
Q. If you could play any instrument, what would it be? During my childhood, I attempted to learn the violin, piano and electric guitar (in that order). For some reason, I always either ran out of patience or got bored of the learning-a-new-instrument phase. I'll stick to my 90's Spotify playlist.
Q. What was your first job? At 8 years old, my cousin and I picked prickly pears from our grandparents' fields and proceeded to sell them to tourists visiting my uncle's souvenir shop. We made around Lm 2 (equivalent to almost €5). Does that count as a job?
Q. Favourite drink? Right now? I could drink a Negroni. But as it’s only 10 am, I suppose I’ll take a cup of my husband's perfectly brewed coffee, please!
