Addicted to Bettering Myself
Addiction is the fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity. Would it still be called addiction if you were addicted to bettering yourself? One of the best investments you can make is getting to know yourself better and here’s 3 tips that helped me!
Spend time alone doing activities that people usually don’t do alone- One of my favorite most embarrassing things I enjoy doing by myself is going to see a movie. Anytime, any day, anywhere close I will go! Recently I got into the really nice movie theatres that serve food and have those big recliners. If this is something that is way to weird for you try going to a nice restaurant alone and enjoy a meal. Solitude allows you to reboot your brain, provides time for deep thinking, and even enhances quality relationships with others.
Affirm how wonderful you are-Make a list of 10 amazing qualities about yourself to serve as encouragement, write them down and state them in the mirror. Mine went like this. “It is safe to be Julia. I am beautiful, intelligent, creative, wise, powerful, rich, energetic, healthy, positive, and loyal.”
Write out a conversation with your 99-year old self- And answer the following questions: What should I concentrate on in the next few years? What is an experience that would have the most positive impact on my life? Feel free to add more specific questions.
