There are many opportunities for personal development with a goal of healing and growing emotionally and mentally. Self-help books, seminars, and immersion programs offer a variety of information. Many have benefitted from one or more, including this author.
While the information shared by the most successful, spiritually grounded and aware individuals is helpful, there is more. How does one practice these teachings? How do we put what we have read, heard or experience via training into action?
Most of us take in information, process it and retain what we choose to that has affected us. We also may choose to adapt what we have received into something that makes sense for us and works for us.
One of my criteria to being healthy is to meet my individual need of daily, healthy outcomes. With a long term goal of wellness. While I do not profess to achieving this goal on a consistent basis, it is what I strive for. Perhaps that is what life is all about, continually striving for improvement while being present to embrace the moment in front of us. And knowing, because we are human we will not always hit the target.
I take in the information that comes to me in a variety of ways and sift through it to assist me in shaping my personal Mentally Healthy Blueprint © It requires asking myself questions about how I want to experience my life, what outcomes I expect and what drives my personal needs and wants.
My Mentally Healthy Blueprint © includes;
Defining personal success
Measurable purposeful actions
Setting an exclusive standard of living
Operating within boundaries that I deem necessary
Allowing my Blueprint to be adapted as needed
I encourage you to create your own Blueprint for your success. A great way to start is to gather your thoughts on all you have learned thus far. Determine from there what fits with your beliefs and values. Make your Blueprint your own, not based on what others think or expect from you.
Mentally healthy means being well emotionally and psychologically, which affects our social well-being. Determine what ‘well’ means for you. Everyone is different and we each have our own mind to not only discover our happiness but to live each day on our own terms.
