Everyone has hopes, goals, and dreams.
Maybe you want to save a little more money to go on a nice vacation. Perhaps you want to change jobs or move up in the workplace. A goal of yours might be to start living a healthier lifestyle through diet, exercise, or social activities. Regardless of what you want out of life, the path to these things starts with you. And you can get to know you through meditation.
Knowing who you really are on the inside is what is going to help you take those first few steps in the right direction, this transcends what you think about your appearance, your personality, or what you think others think you to be, but who you are at your core. It’s about taking a little time out of your day to connect with yourself and becoming self-aware and understanding who you are.
According to Wellness Expert Debbie Gissoni, “the modern dilemma of self-awareness is that it’s a quiet inner journey at a time when we’re mainly focused on our noisy outer journey.”
Everyone always wants to focus on how to get from A to B instead of focusing on the person (you) who is going to be making the actual move. Once you get in touch with who you are, you can better plan that trip from A to B aka the path to achieving your goals.
The best way to get in touch with yourself is through meditation.
Take a small amount of time out of your day to totally relax and think about yourself. What makes you happy, what makes you upset, things that motivate you, the little things that make you, you.
The good news is that meditation and inner reflection can take on many forms. Going for a walk, listening to or playing music, you could paint, write, lay on the couch, organize your stamp collection, whatever makes you relaxed but doesn’t distract you.
It helps to unplug from things like your phone, email, computer, and TV so you can really focus on yourself instead of a cat video, work issue, or your kid’s new profile picture.
Accomplishing goals and making dreams reality takes a lot of mental effort and work, make sure your mind is clear and you know exactly what you want for yourself before you begin to tackle the path ahead of you. Once you do that, your journey can begin.
