Ascension : For The Islander
Submitted by The Islander (Islander Editors) 02.06.2011 (Article Archived on 16.06.2011)

This week I would like to pass on some information to Islander Readers from a conference I attended on building self- esteem in children. The guidelines are applicable to adults as well.

This week I would like to pass on some information to Islander Readers from a conference I attended on building self- esteem in children.  The guidelines are applicable to adults as well.


The secret to great self-esteem, is FINDING THE BALANCE WITHIN YOURSELF.


Each of the following “wells” should be addressed equally in your life.  If one area is given more importance than the other, then the theory says you are not balanced. What do you think?


•Cognitive Well :


•Reading books, watching plays/films. Debating ideas. Submitting ideas to others. Planning/structuring ideas and thinking things through. The mind shrinks if it is not stimulated.

•Emotional Well:

•Time for fun and enjoying unconditional time with others. Friendships, stable loving relationship with partner/family. Opportunities to express feelings.  Opportunities to talk through dilemmas in a supportive relationship.

•Creative Well:

•Enjoy your senses and imagination.  Appreciate all the arts.  Write/draw/sing/dance.  Play with colour,texture,sound, scent and movement.

•Physical Well:

• It is very difficult to enjoy good emotional health if you are physically unfit, tense and heavy with lethargy.  To dissolve knots of tension, excercise weekly, learn relaxation techniques, go for a massage, eat and sleep well.

•Spiritual Well:

•This is about renewing your sense of wonder and awe.  You may reach this level with your religious beliefs, through meditation or by taking time to be at one with nature. It is important to still the mind so you can experience energy, beauty and/or grace.

 


VISITING EACH OF THESE WELLS EQUALLY WILL GIVE YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN ENERGY, PERSPECTIVE and BALANCE.
