Take Charge of Your Emotional Life

Filed under: Health — admin @ 12:06 am

Ten Steps to Take Charge of Your Emotional Life by Dr. Eve Wood. I read this long ago and had taken some notes. Last weekend, while searching something on old tax return forms, I found a scrap paper with these notes. I like the idea that when it comes to our spiritual and emotional life, it is often a matter of personal choice. And to a great extent, what we choose to believe and to go by decide the quality of our spiritual and emotional health. I am sure some of the readers have read it or part of it. Still, here it is again.

(1) Give thanks — write down three things you are thankful for each day
(2) Help others — practice small acts of kindness
(3) Forgive yourself and others
(4) Love and say it to someone you love
(5) Nurture acceptance, without being judgmental
(6) Study, learn, and expand your awareness, open yourself to the wisdom of ancient times
(7) Cultivate humility and do away with judgment
(8) Don’t criticize, communicate respectfully
(9) Look for the blessing in challenging, painful or difficult situations
(10) Always give the benefit of a doubt — assume the best of others until proven otherwise
(11) Exercise, dance, meditate or do yoga
(12) Paint, draw, sing, garden or write or any form of expression
(13) Feed yourself with good nutrition
(14) Surround yourself with people who believe in you
(15) Nurture hope — where there is a will there is a way. Don’t allow yourself to believe those who tell you otherwise.
(16) Ask for you
(17) Never give up
