Scientists tell us that we have very little control over our actions as most of the time we act out of habits and programmes, without even thinking about what we are doing.
Do you agree?
Would you like to change that?
The good news is that it’s possible.
I invite you to do a little experiment to see it for yourself.
All you are going to do is observe yourself without any judgement.
Allow your day to evolve as usual.
You can aim to start making changes in your day towards some new habits or you can just get on with your ordinary day.
I simply want you to observe yourself, your thoughts and your feelings throughout the day.
Every time you do something, check in afterwards.
“Was this something I wanted to do or did I do it out of habit, without even thinking? ”
“How did it make me feel?”
And just observe.
Remember, no judgement at all, if possible.
Imagine that you are observing someone else, not yourself. You are the observer.
Take notes at the end of the day.
You will get:
An insight. An understanding. A new perception of yourself. And a lot more.
This is self-awareness. You are getting to know yourself more and more.
And when you gain self-knowledge, you will find it easier to do what you want to do.
The more you work with this, the easier it will be to turn your unhelpful habits into the ones that serve you rather than sabotage you.
Start practicing today.
I’d love to know how you get on, feel free to leave a comment.
