When we think about our own emotional wellbeing, it's important to remember just how much it can affect those around us.
This should be obvious, our mood and energy will interact with everyone in our immediate environment. However, it's not always at the forefront of our conscious awareness.
If you want to improve your relationship with others, you first have to address your relationship with yourself. Transforming your self-image and how you communicate with yourself will impact every other relationship you have.
If you want a more meaningful and engaged connection with your loved ones, it helps to elevate your wellness so that you're more enthusiastic, optimistic and compassionate towards yourself first; then your external relationships will change automatically.
The Ripple Effect
It's incredible to think that every action you take ripples out across your entire life's circumstances, setting everything in a constant state of change.
Actions consist of moods, facial expressions, words and anything you put out there into the world. If you consider this carefully, it makes you realise just how in control of your destiny and surroundings you are.
What kind of energy and actions do you want to ripple out over your life? To state anything other than positivity and happiness would sound insane, however, unconsciously this is something a lot of people are doing without realising it.
The simple act of becoming aware that your energy ripples out across every corner of your life situation is both sobering and daunting, depending on what kind of life you've been leading up to this point.
As the old saying goes, “you get out of life what you put into it.” Therefore, if you want more positivity for you and your loved ones, that's precisely what you need to be radiating with every cell of your being.
Granted, this is easier said than done, however, if you can change your self-image and the way you interact with others to reflect your agenda, the results that begin to manifest in your life will astound you. (P.S. this ISN’T the law of attraction, this is action = results, the way ALL results are created!)
Measure Your Wellness
Developing an awareness of your wellness in common situations and scenarios is essential to feeling as comfortable and relaxed as you can be.
When we're aware of our thoughts, emotions, and actions, we take more time over them to ensure that we aren't putting out negative energy that will ripple out into other areas of our lives.
There are a few ways to measure your activity at any given moment, however, to begin with, it does feel a little forced. In this day and age, we're lucky enough to have technology on our side when it comes to reminders.
Our phone alerts and notifications snap us out of what we're doing, giving us a message that we can't ignore. This is the perfect way to prompt yourself numerous times throughout the day to check your stress levels and wellness, to see how you're reacting to yourself and everything around you.
You'll find various “stress check” apps that can measure your moods through asking questions and scanning your heart rate. These are very effective, and give you metrics and data that make it hard for you to argue with.
Wellness Isn't Selfish
A lot of people hold the stereotypical perspective that taking time for themselves or to “work on themselves” is viewed as selfish.
While this is completely untrue, unfortunately, it does stop people from starting an inward journey that will not only transform their own lives for the better, but the relationship that they have with those they love and cherish most too.
If you want to do something incredibly profound and meaningful for the wellbeing of the planet and those around you, learn to love yourself unconditionally.
Through loving yourself, you learn to appreciate life and realise that everything is precious. Because of this, you treat others with more respect, compassion and a willingness to help others notice that their life is worthy of unconditional self-love too.
Be an Example
One of the best ways to transmit love and effective lessons with others is to be a living example of what you're trying to teach others.
The method of telling your loved ones how to live or what to do has never gone down too well, and usually results in arguments or one person seeming condescending and patronising.
A diplomatic and natural way to really get through to someone, is to let them see for themselves how they could improve their lives, by showing them how with results and actions.
How many kids would push the infamous “red button” if parents didn't tell them not to, but simply didn't push it themselves? Depending on the emotion a message is communicated with, a certain response will come back from the recipient.
Wrapping things up…
Overall, through positive intention and example setting, you stand a greater chance of transforming your own life and those around you, by setting the tone in a peaceful and healthy manner.
It’s clear that your wellness will increase the level of happiness and compassion among those who are closest to you!
