They’re easy, take seconds and have a big return on investment.
1. Asses your emotions
Take a big breath, close your eyes, and scan your body in your mind.
Try to feel if there's pain, tension, or discomfort in your body. What are you feeling? Is it sad, angry, fear or joy? Something else?
Say: "I am feeling X (name the feeling) in my X (name the body part)".
2. Be aware of your judgements
Everyone judges. All the time. Judgement is a way to categorize our experiences.
But when you judge others, It’s a manifestation of your own insecurities and self-esteem.
We judge in others what we dislike in ourselves.
Next time you find yourself judging others, be aware that it is always about you, not the other person.
3. Be in integrity
Your integrity means doing what you say you’re going to do.
you measure integrity via two kinds of agreements:
Agreements made with yourself e.g., "I'm going to quit smoking"
and agreements made with others e.g., "I'm going to meet you tomorrow at 10am”.
Think about your agreements.
Are you, or are you not keeping the agreements you’ve made with yourself and with others?
You’ll be amazed what happens to your relationship after one week of practicing these steps.
