The 3 Stages of a Greater Well-being

Through out society, it seems that we have very little time to consider our own health and well-being. We are so busy on the wheel of success that our time is spent getting ahead rather than focusing on a more important aspect to our time on earth, which is how we feel. We feel that the future is where happiness is and when we get there, we soon discover there is more of the ladder. When does the ladder end?

Here are The 3 Stages of a Greater Well-being

Self-honesty

It takes a monumental amount of courage to look ones self in the mirror and take responsibility over how you are feeling. Most would more rather deny the flaws in their way of living which is creating a poor well-being. This is because the moment of honesty means that you can no longer continue to deny these flaws. This can be a very scary faze in the stages of a greater well-being but ultimately it opens up the door to change.

Forgive and let go

Once one has discovered their behaviours and habits which are causing them to feel low and miserable, they often punish themselves for it. They feel angry at themselves for how they feel and participate in consistent mind chatter. It is important to realise that you are only human and that no man or woman alive exist without making their own mistakes. Forgive yourself for your flaws and mistakes, let go and move forward. this creates a sense of freedom and brings the 3rd and most important stage.

Action

Once you have forgiven yourself and have made the emotional shift to move on, you then have to take action. This can mean a multitude of things, perhaps you finally have to do the thing you have always wanted to do, maybe it means eating better and getting in shape. It doesn’t matter what the action is, as long as you know in your heart of hearts that finally it is the kind of existence you wish to have. How exciting!

Ultimately, it takes going through these stages to then have the capacity to live the life you actually want to live and not the life you were told to live. This is the truest way to create a sense of well-being and sometimes it takes being low to realise it.
