Noticing Your Patterns
Many of us go through life on autopilot. We wake up, go to work, come home, watch tv, sleep and do it all over again. When we take a moment to actually ask “what am I doing?” “why am I here?” or even “why am I doing it this way?” we start to take note of our patterns, including the habits that aren’t truly serving us.
The first step to “waking up” is being aware of what we’re doing in the present moment so that we can awaken the impulse to change it. You might realize you need to move or change jobs for example, and finally, have the courage to do it.
