Why is Self Awareness Important?

Why Does Self-Awareness Matter?

Self-awareness is the key cornerstone to emotional intelligence, according to Daniel Goleman. The ability to monitor our emotions and thoughts from moment to moment is key to understanding ourselves better, being at peace with who we are and proactively managing our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours.

In addition, self-aware people tend to act consciously rather than react passively, to be in good psychological health and to have a positive outlook on life. They also have greater depth of life experience and are more likely to be compassionate to themselves and others.

Emotional Dependency?

#selfawareness

🔅Emotional dependency means getting one’s good feelings from outside oneself. It means needing to get filled from outside rather than from within. Who or what do you believe is responsible for your emotional wellbeing?

🔅This week I will focus on why it’s important to be aware of your emotions in your workplace, life, relationships, and your business!

🔅There are numerous forms of emotional dependency:

* Dependence on substances, such as food, drugs, or alcohol, to fill emptiness and take away pain.

* Dependency on processes such as spending, gambling, or TV, also to fill emptiness and take away pain.

* Dependence on money to define one’s worth and adequacy.

* Dependence on getting someone’s love, approval, or attention to feel worthy, adequate, lovable, and safe.

* Dependence on sex to fill emptiness and feel adequate.

🔅Can you relate to any of these, 🙋🏽‍♀️I know I can, so this week I will focus more this topic!

Gratitude Journal 📔 10/22/18

Happy Monday friends! ☺️

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. ~Ecc. 3:1

Look at the clock. ⌚️

What time is it? Is it time to go? Are you running out of time?

I need more time! Lord, help me to stop and relax and enjoy time instead of feeling like it is the enemy.

Help me be grateful for each minute and the special joys it brings.

Sometimes I need to slow down and think of time as my friend.

Thank you, Lord, for time and the gift it brings me! 😊

See time as your friend, slow down and let life take its course.

My grandma use to say, ”you ripping and running right to you your grave”!

Again I say slow down my friends, yes it’s easier said than done but enjoying every day to the fullest will bring so many rewards.

Have an amazing day and week,

Olivia💕
