When taking time for yourself, it's important to not get caught on the superficial aspects of self-improvement, said Wilder.

"Sometimes we don't spend enough time focusing on ourselves, or it's a confused focus," she said, adding how easy it is to get lost on improving superficial means, like outward appearance or social media image. "We are not really focusing on the inside — the mental space, how we're treating our body. We're not really taking care of us."

The confidence associated with the angel number 111 needs to be grounded. If you lose focus, then things can start to go awry.

"If you don't think you're enough, then whatever is on the outside, it's never going to satisfy you," said Wilder. "A more flashy, more curated feed, it's just never going to be enough. So, you always need to come home from the inside."
