Last week, we covered Spanning the Dimensions: Is Your Wellbeing in Order? The four dimensions of well-being addressed were: Physical, Emotional, Nutritional, and Medical. Today we will cover the importance of emotional wellbeing and the importance of YOU! We have selected to discuss ‘be-an observer in your own life.’
What happens when you take personal responsibility for learning about how you think and feel (physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually)? What if you could figure out ‘triggers,’ signs or patterns to shed light on how you could help yourself and those around you – live the best life possible?
You ‘live’ your life, basically, by how you process information, choose to take action and devise a course to work for you and how you process data in and out. Your reactions will run the gamut of happiness (short or long term), disappointment, emotional or physical pain and suffering, acceptance or rejection of responsibility for the result, and possibly stubbornness in considering changing the way they approach a situation. Einstein shared a definition of insanity along those lines. Right?
This life lesson consists of simple tools to create and live your best life on all levels. It provides the framework to learn about you. Ready?
Be an observer in your own life.
It’s amazing what you can learn about others and more importantly about yourself when you slow down and just ‘observe.’ It’s a simple first step towards caring for yourself. Remember, if you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t show up completely to live your best life, or offer your best at work life, social and to be there for others.
How you act/react consciously or unconsciously, helps you to figure out the ‘triggers’, when tripped inside of you, set off a chain reaction causing you to jump to conclusions or say something better left unsaid. You have ‘data points’; ways to calm your nervous system, bring health and well-being into your life and find a route to create a new balance in your life.
Stop at least three times a day to ‘observe’ yourself. Put your ‘technology’ aside, stand still and consciously ‘feel’ what’s happening in your body and your mind. Recall the last ‘thought’ you had before you stopped to ‘observe.’
Keep in mind ‘consistency’ is the key towards getting the most out of this exercise; we know the more we repeat an action, the more it will become a habit. Yes, you read right, start creating a habit of observing yourself and noting what you’re feeling, sensing, and thinking. It’s going to be invaluable.
Have fun on your journey to learn more about your inner and outer self; work to develop a plan of action to create your best life.
