Have you ever noticed that while we have many inquiries for our families, friends, co-workers, staff, and neighbors every day, we rarely ask questions of ourselves? It could be that you are taking on other people’s mindsets rather than framing your own. Take a look at the following questions that could help you with a more positive perspective on your day.
What am I prepared to learn today?
Be a constant learner. Just because you are no longer in school doesn’t mean you have to stop being aware of the wider world. A constant pursuit of learning contributes to your overall well-being.
How do I feel?
Your mental, emotional and physical wellness should always have priority. Pay attention to shifts in your thoughts and feelings and recognize how they affect your behavior. Take care of yourself.
How do I make others feel?
How you treat others says a lot about who you are. Compassion, authenticity, generosity and kindness go a long way, and when you extend yourself to others, you add to your own well-being too.
What can I do better today than I did yesterday?
Stop trying to be perfect! Many self-help experts advise us to make friends with errors or mistakes. Failures provide experience and feedback that we would not have if we always did everything perfectly. Errors provide the opportunity for reflection and growth.
What am I grateful for?
Studies show that taking the time to acknowledge what you are grateful for can lead to increased happiness. We all know that when gratitude is sincerely expressed, it makes us feel recognized and appreciated. If you pay attention, you will fine plenty of instances to express gratitude.
What makes me smile?
A smile is a joyful thing. Use it often. Notice that when you smile at someone, they smile back. We need more smiles!
