Do what you already do, ONLY BETTER.
Live. Reflect. Tweak.
Wake up and get out of bed every day - just do that. That's all the energy we need from you in this step.
Here you decide what does or doesn't feel good on any given day. Get my journal to help guide you or just grab a notebook or your phone. When something amazing OR uncomfortable happens around something you saw or heard or around an interaction you had, briefly jot down what happened. Then think about why you might be responding the way you are. In this phase, try to ask yourself the following questions:
What about this specific situation bothered or delighted me?
Why do I think I am having this kind of a response to this situation?
In my journal, you are presented with some activities that help you identify values, limiting beliefs and learned behaviors that might be creating conflict or be eliciting positive feelings to help you better suss out what might be happening in situations that evoke extreme positive or negative emotions.
Based on what you reflected on in the previous stage, decide (and own) how and if you want to change or *tweak* what is happening to you in your life - on a day to day basis. Decide to change something or don't but now you know what works and doesn't so here you get to own what you choose from your reflections. Here are some questions to ask yourself in this phase:
If your response was positive, ask "What can I do to put myself in situations where this happens more often"?
If your response was negative, ask "What can I do to try to change the feeling I had in response to this situation in the future"?
Over the course of a few weeks, you will start to see a pattern in your response log. You will notice that you are elated by and frustrated by some of the same situations. Consider what that means and how you want to respond to those situations to improve or recreate them.
Do what you do every day and just make the time to think about and reflect on how you feel about situations that happen on any given day to decide if you want to do something about it. That's it. You have the power to change your thoughts which will change your feelings which will enable you to change your behaviors. Decide any time what you want to be and how you want to change. If you had an amazing day, try to understand what that was all about so you can have more of them. If you had a sucky day, understand what specifically made it sucky for you to help curtail those feelings in the future. Writing down and reflecting on our behaviors help us become more self-aware which will make us more likely to create the changes that best serve us
