Post by on Thursday, March 3, 2022
First you must know, what is self-awareness? Oxford dictionary defines self-awareness as, “knowledge and understanding your own character". It simply means you know your traits, behavior and emotions very well. Self-awareness is one of the ways to secure mental health as it improves your self-esteem and higher the self-esteem, lower the chances to get mental health disorders.
Why is self-awareness important? Reasons are:
· It is one of the life skills and life skills help you to grow.
· We get better listening skills.
· We show more empathy towards people. Empathy can be described as putting your feet in other's people shoe; simply it means we are able to understand other people's situation.
· We get a better picture of our self.
We get to know what is self-awareness and its importance. Now I will share a beautiful quote with you written by Drew Gerald, "Look outside and you will see yourself. Look inside and you will find yourself". Now I will give you an activity to do that will help you to gain self-awareness.
Activity: Write your name vertically and then give each letter a suitable adjective and after writing adjectives, write a paragraph/essay/ poem about you using these adjectives to describe you. For example:
I am a miraculous girl with lots of miracles. My eyes have miracle with an adorable smile. I love to show love towards me that is the reason I am lovely. My introvert side is ideal for me. It gives me a sense of hope to live which makes me hopeful. And these things together make me amazing and which make me MALIHA.
