Self-Awareness: A Powerful Way To Heal One’s Self

If we detoxify our body to the best of our ability, it will naturally start to heal itself. But the process should not only include the physical sense of healthiness that there’s not much sickness in it but also targets an overall level as well. Meaning, there’s this strengthening of emotional and mental well-being too. Because in psychology, it shows that there’s a correlation of emotional and psychological ability to the kind of lifestyle we have. So with that, our actions and way of living create a specific effect on our overall function.

The Misconception

Perhaps a lot of us think the same way. That because we are not feeling anything painful within our body, we assume we’re physically ok. Same goes to our mental function. When we feel off all the time, we ignore it and find that our emotional crisis is somehow reasonable. We don’t often go more in-depth in knowing what’s bothering us physically, emotionally, and mentally. There are also instances that even if we know something wrong; we wait for it to go away eventually. With that, the whole process of getting better becomes impossible because we tend to disregard the fact, signs, and symptoms that show a particularly negative thing exists inside of us.

 The Damages

As humans, we think that the way we usually handle our lives is the only way to do it. We are afraid to make changes, and we often don’t like to compromise. Why is that? Perhaps we are used to doing things that are more convenient for us. But there’s a problem with that. We often complain about getting better in mental, physical, and emotional aspects, but we are not trying to change or do things that make it possible to happen. We want to achieve a goal that we know is attainable, but don’t want to take steps. It becomes a big deal because we often live in the idea of wanting great things without the effort of working for it. With that kind of mindset, we invite negativity that results in severe overall damages.

When we are broken, it’s either we immediately find ways to fix ourselves or keep things in flow. But in a more easeful manner, we try and solve things one way or another. However, doing it over and over again, we somehow recognize that we are in an unwanted situation where we thought about liking things differently. So how can we manage to get up and become a better version of ourselves?

Self-Awareness Is The Key

With the entire struggle, we encounter in our lives such as emotional, physical, and mental, and with all the decisions we have to make, everything falls into one particular factor – self-awareness. It allows us not only to know how things around us affect us but also provides us answers to manage it. It promotes self-development. With self-awareness, we become conscious of how certain things happen with or without first-hand experience. It becomes a window that allows us to know that something exists. That’s because there is the buildup of a natural inclination of detoxifying the overall balance of the mind and body.

With self-awareness, our feelings and emotions start to change. There’s this sense of clarity because the changes are happening inside and out. We begin to focus our thoughts on meaningful and relevant decisions that best serve us. It helps us let go of a lot of negative things and beliefs we try to hold onto.

Achieving Solutions

The solution gets derived from our perception. Meaning, we come up with something based on how we can see and understand our problem. But that perception gets determined by our self-awareness. With increased self-awareness, it would start to make us experiment in solutions that involve taking care of our selves’ overall development. So rather than sticking to what we believe in, and attempting to figure things out without the effort of changing, self-awareness makes us turn to things in broad perspectives.

Humans develop by following extremely predictable patterns. Therefore, all of us understand our needs in taking care of ourselves in more complex ways. Thus, it is vital to remember that the only way to heal one’s self is by starting to reach a better functioning self-awareness.

  • Comments Off on Everyday Mindfulness: Because No One’s Ever Too Busy To Meditate

In this modern world wherein you can easily get caught up in the daily grind, it is so easy to say that life can get busy. You get preoccupied with your long list of to-do’s, along with tasks and paperwork which no longer seem to end. The trap here is as you get more and more engrossed in the demands of the world, you tend to be more distant and less attentive to your inner self. It is when mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression come into the picture. The sad part is that, sometimes, no amount of counseling or online therapy could help you find yourself.

Does Nature Alone Have The Power To Cure Anxiety?

  • Comments Off on Does Nature Alone Have The Power To Cure Anxiety?

Psychiatrists would always advise their stressed patients to plan a little vacation and relaxation somewhere, preferably to a greener place away from the city. Doctors would also suggest to jog or even walk every day to parks to reduce the feelings of stress and anxiety. It leads down to the question if nature alone, the jogging and sometimes costly travel expenses, can make our mental being any better.

The Color Of The Surroundings Has A Psychological Impact To The Mental Aspect

Especially on sunny days, the lively blending of colors of green and yellow is said to invoke happy mood and cheerful vibes to the people. The shade of green generally signifies peace, quietness, and stability. This color of nature is known to attract harmonious feelings that get rid of anxiety and stress. Different shades of green are being used in the interior walls of a house as it is deemed the best stress-reducing color.

 The Trees Give Off Only Fresh Scent And Oxygen

Researchers from the University of Queensland (UQ) and ARC Center of Excellence for Environmental Decisions (CEED) concluded that every person needs a minimum dose of nature every day. The benefits range from a reduction of risk of heart diseases and lesser chances of depression, anxiety, and severe instances of stress.

If you will notice there is this particular scent of the parks, gardens, mountainous areas and other green fields that seem to unblock your noses and lungs full of the pollution from the cities. These green bushes and trees, from our basic biology and earth science classes, are good at giving off unpolluted, clean and fresh air for you to breathe in.

If you familiarize yourself with aromatherapy, then you will find yourself immersed in the different scents of nature. There is this scent of the sea, the woods, the mountains, and other natural smells to add to your home and enhance your mental well-being. Nature scents have been proven to align your thoughts and aid to a better stress reception.

The Scenery Itself Is Relaxing

Numerous studies have already concluded and reported that people living in a neighborhood of trees, bushes, and birds, are the least likely to develop anxiety and depression in the long run. Most of us, if not all, do not know the reason why our minds align and the intense emotions subside and become better just by looking at the ocean, the mountains, the birds on the trees, and the flowers blooming. Nature itself is already the reason.

The scenery and view of nature at its purest has this peaceful vibe to all its viewers. The city is a fast-pacing aspect. People come and go and sprint like every day is a deadline. Cars are honking like there’s no tomorrow. People usually shout wherever they go to be heard. Crimes happen anywhere before you even know it. The overcrowding of the city also adds to the stress brought about by the demands of business and the modern world itself.

Compared to a park and green surroundings, everything here is calm. Even the winds become gentle. The silent rustling of leaves will not add to the sound pollution. It also aids to your relaxation and increased skills of emotional resilience. The singing of birds is music to the ears. The unpolluted air and natural scent will make you feel truly at home.

Indeed, even walking or sitting in an urban park will give you this contented and relaxed feeling before going back to the realities of life. With the above research-backed-up studies and findings, it is safe to say that nature is your kind of ‘overnight’ cure for mild stress and passing anxiety.
