Reviewing Your Life – Walking, Jogging, Praying, Blogging or Vlogging Reflection Takes Many Forms.
Reflection takes many forms. Some keep a journal, some pray, and others take a long walk or jog. Personally, I use daily meditation as my mindful habit. – Bill George

 

I pray, walk and meditate. I think that it would be good for me to keep a journal. So far this month I’ve been reading and posting about self awareness and I’ve came across many articles telling me to do so. Hey! It can’t hurt to try it out and do a weekly review of my life. I’ve also read that we can romanticize our memories or down play them. So a journal might keep me on track.

 

Vlogging in addition to Journaling could provide a different aspect to how you see yourself. When you record yourself you can see your mannerisms, pick up the different tones in your voice, hear your own accent.

 

Seeing yourself recorded is a lot different then talking to yourself while looking into a mirror. When I see myself in a mirror, I say wow that’s a nice color on you, did you clean your teeth good enough, is my hair nice enough to go outside?

 

I haven’t vlogged yet, but I’m already assuming that my thoughts will be just a bit more judgie. I also know that I should be greatful. Hey, maybe when I start journaling and or vlogging I’ll start with what I’m grateful for. Being grateful always cuts down the negative thinking.

 

Well, if you try any form of reflecting let me know by leaving a comment.

Hello! I'm Ericka Bates. I am a wife and mother of 2. Totally nosey with the ability to read. Therefore a great researcher. Things I like to look into autism treatments, health, meditation, and personal development. In much of my findings with autism, stress came up a lot. Stress turned out to be the cause for most health problems. Know what can defeat stress? Meditation! Meditation is not only a great way to get rid of stress, but it's also used to reduce anxiety, depression, anger, lower blood pressure and increase your creativity. There are many forms of meditation and right now I am actively practicing 4. I sit quietly and watch my breath. At first this was hard. My mind kept wondering, I was sitting in thought. Now my mind still wonders some, but I think that I'm getting the hang of it. Hey, practice makes perfect right. Walking is my favorite form of meditation. I listen to a podcast while walking and when I'm done I feel relaxed. Gratefulness or Gratitude is another good one. When I get upset, I stop and think okay, what's five things that's good about this situation. This calms me down and makes me feel better. Like the saying goes happiness is a choice and I wanna be happy. Happiness just doesn't show up you have to produces that kind of energy for yourself. Visualization is the fourth form of meditation I practice. I have a vision board with pictures of the things I want and the things I want to do. The pictures are fun to find, cut out, arrange, pin up and their nice to look at every day. Because your only choosing the things you like and want to do makes this form of meditation a joy to have in your life. It wasn't hard making meditation a part of my every day life. Now I feel that meditation is the foundation to anyone's personal development. Hopefully you'll find a form or forms of meditation that's just right for you too.
