Introspection/Self-Awareness/MindfulnessJuly 4, 2021 2021-07-12 17:32
What is Introspection:
“The examination or observation of one’s own mental and emotional process “.
Quiet introspection can be extremely valuable.
Introspection is probably the most broadly hailed path to internal self-awareness.
Honestly, what better way is there to increase our self-knowledge than to look inward, to dig deep into our experiences and emotions, and to understand why we are the way we are?
When we reflect, we might be trying to understand our feelings, our reactions, questioning our beliefs, figuring out our future, or trying to explain a negative result or habitual behaviour.
What is Mindfulness:
‘Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we are doing, not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.”
Mindfulness is a quality that we all possess, we just have to learn how to use it in our day to day lives.
Mindfulness is innate, it can be grown through proven techniques …a simple thing like short pauses during your day, being still in the moment to recognise and take note of your surroundings can and will have a positive effect on your mood, your emotions and your clarity.
Doesn’t taking a break however short, bring things to halt and allow you to re-set, re-charge, rejuvenate your body and most importantly your brain?
What is Self-Awareness:
“The quality of our thinking massively influences the quality of our emotional experience. Once we can identify the most common thought patterns that occupy our minds, we can start to choose differently. How we perceive our daily interactions will determine what we believe. We must learn to accept that our perception isn’t always reality.” Kain Ramsay.
