In this sense, it means doing things which will help to raise the perception of oneself. Self-affirming thought processes are just one example of this.

The concept of the quantified self relates to how people make quantifiable records of themselves in a wide range of activities and emotional reactions. Instead of making a qualitative judgement of oneself, this concept relies on scoring and recording data. So, if you were to judge yourself as feeling healthy and alive after a run or a swim, then this would be a qualitative judgement. However, if you had quantifiable data to back this up, such as counting the number of steps you took or your average heart rate as well as data relating to your release of serotonin, for instance, then this would count as forming part of the quantified self. Since technology has become increasingly miniaturised and able to communicate its data via the internet, the concept of the quantified self has grown in popularity.
