MMMM: self awareness

MMMM: Mindfulness, Meditation and Mental health May- is a month of quotes, books and (sometimes unexpected) resources to reflect on, to help have a happier, more mindful life.

Regular book reviews will continue on Fridays.


 

Quote of the Day:

“Don’t let a day go by without asking who you are…each time you let a new ingredient to enter your awareness.”
― Deepak Chopra, The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of Your Life


 

Resources:

Self Awareness can be a difficult thing to work on, as there are many Cognitive Biases which stop us from truly seeing ourselves. The first article is a nice place to start- talking about why it is important, and a few pointers on how to increase self awareness. The second is a summary of most if not all cognitive biases that have been identified. Do you think you have any of them? When I read through, it was easier to see ones that friends have, and ones that I have learnt to avoid already.
