Hello there! You're going to love this article — I bet it will help you live a better life.

A self-aware person knows their strengths and weaknesses. They understand what motivates them and how their thoughts and behaviours influence their actions.

Self-awareness isn't something you're born with; it's a skill that you develop over time through observation and introspection. And just like any other skill, the more you practice, the better you get at it.


You're not alone if you've been feeling a little out-of-sorts lately.

Here are six easy ways to make yourself feel more aware of yourself and what you're doing. Maybe they'll even improve your quality of life!

1) Make sure you keep your body in motion with the help of gentle stretches that you can perform right at your desk (or wherever you work).

2) Take some time each day to reflect on your feelings and identify where you think your body's most vital and weakest sensations are.

3) Write down at least one thing you are grateful for every day.

4) Be kind to others, and be kind to yourself! Take breaks when you need them, and spend time with people who make you feel good about yourself.

5) Permit yourself to do things for yourself — even if that means taking an extra-long bath or buying a new pair of shoes.

6) Spend some time moving around outside today. Whether that means going for a short walk during lunch or a longer hike on the weekend, getting some fresh air will help clear your head so that it's easier to focus on what matters: YOU!


You indeed are a gem. There is so much that could be discussed about you, me, and other people just like us. But for now, let's focus on the little things — why we do the things we do. The sooner we learn to be self-aware of our actions, the sooner we can start working towards improving ourselves and doing better in the future.

As the seasons change and we look toward the opportunities that the coming months will bring, we must note what we've done so far. We can honestly know if we are moving forward through self-awareness of our actions and decisions. And if it turns out that not everything is working perfectly, perhaps some minor changes will help us get back on track. Whatever the case may be, these six tips can serve as a place to start for anyone who wants to improve their self-awareness.
