If I were to rate myself on a scale of 1-10 in the areas of Physical, Spiritual and Psychological Wellbeing that would be a challenge...it seems to be that these are ever changing states and at any one moment I would change my rating from a 4 to an 8 to a 5 etc. But let's give it a shot, shall we;
Physical Wellbeing : 7 - I try to stay pretty physically active, this includes going to the gym a handful of times weekly, walking my 2 unruly dogs when the mood strikes and weather permits and keeping up with my children. The reason I only rate a 7 is because I am not as committed as I would like to be and I don't push myself to reach new limits physical (I have kind of plateaued and been hanging out on that plateau for about 6 months). I want to start pushing my limits and finding new levels of strength, balance, flexibility and endurance.
Spiritual Wellbeing : 9 - I am very satisfied with my spirituality right now! I have become active in a faith community and volunteer my time with children. I am working my way through the Bible and read it at least once a day (my aim is 3, I usually get 2), praying regularly and gratitude for all the blessings and great things I have been given in life. I find myself smiling at nothing at all and when I catch myself doing it, I smile even bigger because I know there are so many things to smile about.
Psychological Wellbeing : 5 - I am one of those people that is much better at giving good advice than I am at following it. I let the small things bother me and this is super disappointing to me. I feel that I have made great strides in the right direction but then something will set me off and I am stressed out and worked up. The disappointment comes in when I look back on that incident, whatever it may be, and realize "wow, there were so many more positive ways I could have dealt with that". I often remind myself that Perfection is not a realistic goal and I should focus on the Progress I have made.
Goals in these areas would be:
Physical : Schedule my physical activity and stick to a schedule
Spiritual : Pay it forward, I enjoy my reawakened spirituality, spread the wealth and good word
Psychological : Make good use of the relaxation techniques we have access to and use them daily
