7 Days to Renewed Energy and Perspective – Action Step 3
Noticing Your Patterns
Select a day or a portion of a day when you make a conscious effort to notice your patterns. It may be the way you react to being challenged, or how you respond to people who are early or late. It could be how you interact with your family or colleagues, or how you respond to a ringing phone or incoming e-mail or text.
Your goal in this exercise is to just notice these patterns; don’t judge them or try to change them – simply notice them. It is in the noticing of our patterns that we begin to loosen any unhealthy hold they may have on us – freeing our mind for more creative and productive activities.
At the end of each day or a few times throughout the day, jot down in your journal anything that you may be noticing about your patterns.
