How well do you really know yourself?

I think one of the characteristics of a thoughtful, evolved person is self-reflection and being honest about your thoughts and desires.

The problem is, it can be challenging to start that inner exploration.

As a tool to help us in the process of discovering our true selves, Deniz Yalim (writing for bayart.org) has compiled a list of introspective questions.

I’ve saved the list to my ereader in order to visit on a daily basis and I thought you might find it helpful as well. (See the link below.)

“When the journey of self-betterment begins, we are always looking for ways to improve ourselves. It is a constant journey where we must be honest and open to change. Often we find improvement advice can be too metaphysical and theoretical. As a passionate advocate of growth, I’m continuously looking for ways to self-improve.” – Deniz Yalim

Cultivate gratitude

gratitude,wellness

It’s a bit of wisdom sages and spiritual teachers have handed down for millenia, and it’s as true now as it ever was –

A mind of gratitude is essential to becoming an evolved, thoughtful and spiritually awakened human being.

Sometimes, I struggle with carrying out this timeless advice, but I’m developing the habit of silently expressing thanks for another day and the opportunity to improve.

Here’s a little tip I found helpful – write an affirmation on a slip of paper that you can glance at several times a day to remind yourself to be grateful for being alive.

Try this phrase or make one up yourself –

Thank you for this day and for the opportunity to help others.

Hey guys, today’s internet find is a bit of a long read, but I’m sure some of you will find it wonderfully informative.

Clinical psychologists, Ellen Hendriksen (writing for Quiet Revolution), offers her insight on the difference between introversion and its seemingly similar condition, social anxiety.

See the link below, and let me know what you think.

“Although introversion and social anxiety may look like a psychological potato-potahto, they’re really more like apples and oranges. How can you tell the difference between social anxiety and introversion? What’s the bright line between an introverted temperament to be honored and social fear to be challenged?” – Ellen Hendriksen
