I am sharing thoughts on “Self-Improvement Processes for Wellness of Being”
“What is Wellness of Being”
It is taking care of our Self through a set routine in the Morning, Afternoon, Night with a salutary effect on our daily way of Life.
It is learning, practicing the “Art & Science” of developing Conscious Awareness of making our Mind and Brain care for our Health in Energy of Fitness to Live Alive!
This ‘Routine is simple, very much doable and very much needed. The Picture below speaks for itself
“Wellness and Stress are within our Choice!”
This process needs ‘Determination & Discipline’ to spare 60 to 90 minutes out of 24 hours in a day, in the morning after we wake up, in the afternoon and before one goes to bed!
In effect it calls for us to set aside:
45 – 60 minutes Cell phone/Computer free time in the morning
15 – 30 minutes in the afternoon as part of Luncheon break
20 – 30 minutes before going to bed.
Beginning our Mornings
Our Morning defines our entire day and impacts our night too.
We allow our mornings to start in a frenzy — Snoozing alarms, skipping breakfast, rushing out the door, forgetting papers and the like, alongside the anxiety of getting late, and guilty pangs of missing out the rest of our day.
Beginning our morning starts with how well we sleep the night before.
Waking up at a set time is our first small win to celebrate.
Our Morning Precious Personal Time (MPPT)
Our MPPT defines who we are and who we can be.
We Owe this to Humanness of Our Self.
DO NOT REPEAT DO NOT go through our Cell/Laptop is part of our, promise. (Everything can wait, and We know it too!)
MPPT Steps are:
Freshening our mind along with your ablutions.
Making up our Bed (alone or together) is Bonding with Self/Family
Counting our blessings in Gratitude and Self Respect for what we have and who we are, are part of our Morning start.
Stretching our Body – 10 – 15 minutes limber up. Keep spine erect whether we, walk, run, or exercise.
Mirroring ourselves as we dress to please our Self is also part of MPPT.
Creating our “Dress Code” for Office/Work from Home (WFH) is recognition of the sanctity of our career calling.
Enjoying a healthy breakfast with focus on what we eat. Saying a Thank you Prayer is affirmation of Self Assurance. (Dressing before or after Breakfast is an individual choice- But dress we must)
Planning and meeting our Daily departure from home or beginning our ‘WFH’ from Home is another Small Win for our Self Esteem.
Self-Promise/Assurance that we shall never “Run Out of Time” is the ‘ROOT’ of our ‘Respect’ of our Self.
TIME is also “*Thoughtfulness in Me*” for Self-Respect and others.
Revising our Have/Want to do list 30 minutes before into Vital Essential desirable priorities is yet another SOP small Win.
Our “Credibility of Competence” – “Reliability of Performance” – “Pleasantness of Relationship” – “Thoughtfulness of Team Spirit” defines our Work Ethic Wellness of Being!
“Our Afternoon Alone Time”
Humans are born to be in togetherness and alone but never feel lonely.
The Alone time is Gathering the self in “Silence, Solitude and Stillness”: The Trinity of Contemplation.
10 to 15 minutes of “Alone time” as part of the lunch break is Gathering our thoughts on how our morning and forenoon went and how to spend the rest of the day.
This is the time to Raise our spirits, cheer our mind and energize our body.
Making this a habit is also our catalytic converter for Wellness of Being.
Solace of Sleep
Sleep is the foundation of a well-rested body and mind.
During sleep, our body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health.
In fact, sleep plays such a vital role in our physical well-being, mental clarity, and quality of life.
Sleep deficiency (the amount varies by individual, but typically this means less than 6 to 8 hours of restful sleep each night) can have adverse effects on our health—and how well we think, react, work, learn, and get along with others.
When we start our day after a night of restful sleep, we will wake feeling rejuvenated and ready to take on the day, starting with our new morning habits.
Review of the Photo above is recommended. In addition:
Preparation is simple and can become a habit
Slowing down our activities an hour before our bed – time is the needed start. (Same time every day)
Gather our thoughts with ourselves or with family at supper time
Switching off our mobile. (pledge)
Stopping the TV too. (promise)
Exercise for 10-15 minutes.(Will)
Meditate- Contemplate for 10 minutes. (determination)
Stretches in the bed. (habit)
Prayer or and calming our self in Gratitude helps too.
Aspire to sleep for an average of 7 hours (6 to 8 hours)
What does Wellness of Being, give us
Wellness of Being, give us:
Focus on Self Gratitude- Self Respect.
Management of our routine at work/home/Creativity/Social engagements without ‘Running Out of Time.’
Looking after Our Self, Our Families in Meaningful Mindfulness.
Discovering our hidden ‘Potential.’
Finding our ‘Joy of Being’ in Prayer hope, Laughter, cheer, fun and often forgiving our Self and others.
Humanness in our Wellness of Being
Humanness is in investing in our Self, towards finding answers within to stand up to our ‘Ups & Downs’ in strength of Purpose.
Try it. It is Free.
This is an Opportunity to prove our Self that we can take care of Our Self, Families, Colleagues and Friends.
Our small wins in practice of “Wellness of Our Being” is what we Owe to Our Self.
