All of them, LOL
Nice! So your life has an awesome potential to get better! 😀
Yeah that’s a long list for me also but I’ll try to be brief. Exercise for health. Be more at peace with myself and others for peace of mind. And as always, have more fun and laughs. I really have to work harder at the craft of photography also. Oh and I have to find a huge chunk of time to devote and love our first grandchild.
That sounds like a handful. At least, you don’t get bored 😀
Work and health. Work comes first because that’ll give me the money to buy my health.
What can you do to help you with this?
🤫 Academic! I failed my first class last semester and might loose my academic scholarship 😬
…if i don’t do well this semester
That’s tough. I’m sure you’ll get better if you set your mind to it.
What about your home needs improvement?
My physical health, work, my personal life (as if there is time to have one)… I think this list could continue, I’ll just stop here, haha
Which one is the most important?
self-care, habits have been slipping & I can feel myself getting unbalanced 🙁
I hope you can get back on track! What is the reason they are slipping?
general lethargy & getting run down I think. Am perking up now thankfully.
– Growth and learning
Without some humor, the life is dull…
Staying positive. For me it’s a constant battle! :O
What are the main things that challenge that positivism?
Writing, which is work right now. But not the fun part. It’s pitching that takes my time.
Which part is the fun part?
Self-improvement (Reading, language learning, writing, self-analyzing and pushing my comfort zone).
Awesome! What can you do to improve that?
Living in the moment and not dwelling on anxious thoughts
What kind of thoughts cause you anxiety?
Any – pain or discomfort makes me think of health issues, and other things easily make me worry
Self-care is something I’m trying to focus on at the moment. I also need to learn how to love and be kind to myself. Hopefully once these are more established I will be able to work on my health (losing weight primarily) and searching for a new job.
Self-care is the most important in my opinion. What do you do to improve this?
I am currently attending Counselling and so far this blog has been a great way to offload. These both take care of my mental self-care, my physical self-care is more based around ensuring I get enough sleep, resting when I feel it necessary (if possible) and putting in a lot more effort to prep my lunches for work the night before so I know I’ve got something to eat that I don’t have to pay extra for. Small things to start with, then looking to build up!
This is awesome! Thank you for your kind words and for including this blog in your self-care toolbox 🙂
all areas where if attention were withdrawn, would fortify spiritual, physical and/or emotional foundation(s), to expand capacity to love. if i perceive something needs more attention, i might ask what then can i remove entirely or in part, so that not more attention is placed elsewhere, but rather that less is spent in ‘nowhere’. perceptual realities of deficiency are just so and because we are creative souls of infinite potential, those realities need not be made manifest.
What parts have you removed so your attention won’t be placed there anymore?
an airplane over-booked in the care and concern of others as i’d myself reserved; a store room stockpiled with grief, fear and false beliefs, and a grocery cart filled with conviction in not needing anyone.
the more removed, the more seen, the more more seen, the more to remove, so maybe it’s this way until the end, where my body might be found naked atop a remote mountain with an empty bird nest next to my head. 🙂
Self care and my relationship with the Lord
I’m glad because they both are something you can do and they don’t depend on nobody else.
Hmm probably my work life and physical Health. I need to work out more often 🙂
What are the next steps you can make to improve those areas?
My mind…need to keep up with my meditation practices
Are there any changes you need to make so it would be easier for you to keep up with your meditation practices?
Yes. Waker up an hour earlier or so. A work in progress. Do you meditate?
I don’t meditate in the true sense of meditation, but I do wake up one hour earlier than I should to read and think about stuff.
I think , exercise… Because when I decided that today I will start my day with fitness…but it’s can’t… it’s cause that my sleeping mood…🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄😑😑😑😑😐😐😐😐😐😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😔😔😔😔☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️😩😩😩😩😩😨😨😨😨😨😨😨🙁🙁🙁🙁🙁
What changes do you need to do to do both?
I have to reduce sleep…😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔😶😶😶😶🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
Mental health, sleep, weight, self esteem, overthinking
How can you make sure those areas do get the required attention?
Constant reflection perhaps ! For weight and sleep, I’ve taken measures such as hitting the gym in Sundays.. I’ve been suffering from insomnia for a very Long time. Finally recently after taking a supplement, I sleep better than before. Sometimes insomnia hit me again. But I’m pushing.
