We all tend to go through rough patches in life, yet regardless of what is going on in our psychological environment, mother earth can help us to attune to our external environment to a higher more positive frequency.
The pretty agility and grace of our surroundings allow us to poise in that moment and appreciate the power of now.
There is always a stillness and peace to be found, spaces where you can gain clarity, inspiration and confidence in the day.
The new economics foundation commissioned by the UK Government’s Foresight project on Mental Capital and Wellbeing developed a set of evidence-based actions to improve personal wellbeing. In this report, NEF presented the evidence and rationale between five well-being actions, drawing on a wealth of psychological and economic literature. Where ‘taking notice’ was recognised as one of the five priorities.
Studies have shown that being aware of what is taking place in the present directly enhances your well-being and savouring ‘the moment’ can help to reaffirm your life priorities. By reminding yourself to ‘take notice’ to strengthen and broaden heightened awareness it enhances your self understanding and allows you to make positive choices based on your own values and motivations.
Setting the ritual to start tweaking and changing your day by taking sometime to enjoy the moment and the environment around you it can absolutely change your life.
Those choices set by mind the UKs leading mental health charity are to plan:
Have a ‘clear the clutter’ day
Take notice of how your colleagues are feeling or acting
Take a different route on your journey to or from work
Visit a new place for lunch.
We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. It is part of everyday life, in the same way that work is part of everyday life for many of us. If you want to attract and retain a healthy balance ‘taking notice’ needs to be a core skill in your personal tool box.
