What is self- awareness?

For the last 50 years, researchers have used varying definitions of self-awareness. For example, some see it as the ability to monitor our inner world, whereas others label it as a temporary state of self-consciousness. Still others describe it as the difference between how we see ourselves and how others see us.

Self- awareness is the ability to be aware of and understand your own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is the foundation of happiness and can help you manage stress, relationships, and other areas of your life.
There are several ways to increase your self- awareness. The following are five tips to get started:

1. Set goals for yourself. Working towards goals will help you measure your progress and stay motivated. Make sure your goals are attainable but challenging enough to keep you on your toes.

2. Track your progress. Keeping track of your accomplishments will provide satisfaction and show you where you need to improve. This can be done in a journal, on a spreadsheet, or through social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter.

3. Be honest with yourself.

Remember that honesty breeds trust, which is essential for happiness in relationships and other areas of life.

4. Be open to change. As we grow and learn new things, our opinions about ourselves may change as well. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different attitudes and behaviors – this is how we grow and learn.

5. Be patient with yourself. Remember that taking the time to develop self awareness is a gradual process; don’t expect overnight results. Be gentle with yourself as you work towards your goals, and allow yourself the time necessary to achieve success.

Making better choices is a choice

There are many ways to improve your life, and each individual is different. What works for one person may not work for another. The key is to find out what works best for you and use that as your guide. This is why it is important to take the time to learn about yourself. Doing so will help you make better choices in your life and achieve your goals.

Here are some tips on learning about yourself:

1) Start by assessing your strengths. Look at your strenghts and understand that these are your silent superpowers and it is time to unleash them. Have a deep look into what do you excel at. Make a brief mental note of what are you less proficient at and make a list of people who are able to help you, hire them as you need them. Don’t full yourself- there is no poingt in trying to be good at things you hate doing or have no interest for. Focus on areas where you excell and delegate the rest- that is the best decision you will ever make!

2) Next, take a look at your emotions, personal values and beliefs. What matters most to you in life? These values guide your actions and determine how you behave. When you know what matters to you, it is easier to make decisions that align with those emotions and values.

3) Finally, ask yourself questions about your life goals and aspirations. What would make you happy? What makes you excited? Once you have a clear idea of what you want, it will be easier to reach your dreams.

Express yourself with confidence

If you’re like most people, you never had time to get yourself. You only know the person who fulfilled others expectations, not yours. How well do you really know yourself?Perhaps now is a good time to explore the different aspects of your personality, what makes you happy, what gets you up in the morning, not what keeps you awake at night and how you can use them to your advantage. By understanding yourself, you can better manage your life and relationships.

Self-awareness is key to self-mastery. Be aware that most people who want to teach you ‘how to’ will only show you what works for them, not necessarely what works for you. By knowing yourself better, you can identify your strengths and use these insights to improve your life in positive ways.

Self-awareness is an important aspect of emotional intelligence. It means being able to understand and manage your own emotions, as well as the emotions of others. This can be difficult, but it’s critical for our overall wellbeing. Here are four ways to improve your emotional intelligence:

1. Be honest with yourself. If you’re upset about something, be honest about that. Recognize that there may be aspects of your life that you’re not happy with, and try to take steps to change those things. Honesty is the key to building trust and transparency with yourself.

2. Pay attention to your body language. How you behave affects not only how others treat you, but also how you feel inside. If you tend to slouch or cross your arms when you’re stressed, for example, other people will likely see this and start treating you in a similar way. Take time to learn how to display positive body language, and practice it whenever possible.

3. Express your feelings in a healthy way. Sometimes it’s hard to know what words to use when we’re feeling overwhelmed or upset. There are plenty of healthy ways to dealwith emotions, though. Try writing about your feelings or talking to a trusted friend about them. When you express yourself in a healthy way, you’re more likely to feel better overall.

4. Stay calm and collected. It can be difficult to keep our composure when we’re feeling upset. The best way to do this is to take a deep breath and focus on calming your mind and body. There are many techniques for doing this, including yoga, meditation, and mindfulness. When we can stay calm and collected, it makes it easier for others to interact with us in a positive way.


Self awareness is the ability to be aware of and understand ourselves both physically and mentally. It is a key component to happiness, as it can help us recognize our own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. When we are aware of our own thoughts and feelings, we can better manage them and progress towards our goals. Additionally, self awareness can help us better understand our relationships with others. When we know how we affect others, we can be more mindful in how we interact with them. Overall, self awareness is a key ingredient to happiness and confidence. Cultivating it can make a significant difference in our lives.

It’s important to know yourself well in order to make the best decisions for your life. Take a closer look at who you are and what makes you tick to be able to develop a deeper understanding of yourself which, in turn, will allow you to make better choices and increase the level of personal fulfillment in your life.
