5 More Ways To Be More of Yourself at Work!

So just a quick FYI, this is actually a continuation of a previous article…

(http://www.thegood.co/5-ways-get-right-work-goes-wrong/)

But without further ado, here are 5 more ways to be more of yourself in the workplace, and in life in general!

6.Enjoy Some Time Out In Nature…
Somehow nature has a way of helping you become more unique while helping you understand yourself that is quite unlike anything else on the earth… It may be painful for those who are uncomfortable being along with their own thoughts. But I can assure you that just by sitting by yourself out in nature for a bit, you will have some different and more individualistic thoughts. Unplugging from the matrix, and just taking a walk can be one of the most rewarding things in the world in my eyes, and most people don’t indulge in this free activity. Granted weather may be a factor depending on where you live, but when you can get out into nature, you should. It’s always time well spent as far as I am concerned because nature always embraces you as an individual. It makes no prerequisites for your friendship, and it puts on no pretenses. It just truly allows you to see into the deeper truth of organic life… Theological debates aside, there is something spiritual there, which puts you in touch with your own higher calling.

7. Donate Your Expertise To Some Younger People…
In the mass of terrible parents out there, I’m sure you can find a young person who needs a role model… Not only will you feel better about yourself having helped someone who is spiritually in need of mentorship out in the wide world. But you will also have a lot more fun than hanging out with the old predictable programmed response adults… Kids are a blast because they are totally unpredictable, and they tell it like it is.. Kids naturally want to embrace truth, and will keep you guessing. If you want a good honest self-appraisal, you should go hang out with some kids for a while, you may learn something valuable.

8. Start Cooking for Yourself…
As one of my chef friends once said, “The best food you will ever eat, is simple food you cook for yourself…

Cooking is a joy that many people don’t take the time to indulge in, but everyone appreciates a good cook… Now I suck at cooking myself, but I am trying to get better. I think everyone loves to eat, so you will always bring a genuine appreciation from others if you can feed them in style… You can’t fake food cooked with love. Actions speak louder than words, Nuff Said!

9. Keep a Journal…
Writing things to yourself is a great way to be more authentic… You can tell if you’re keeping it real or not, if you’re living up to your higher expectations for yourself, or if you’re just mailing it in. I don’t journal myself, but I know many people who do, and they strike me as very genuine self-nurturing souls by and large. I guess you could blog instead, but I think journaling is better because it’s private. It allows you to practice talking to yourself, a skill that is much undervalued in our society. Talking to yourself keeps your subconscious healthy, and prevents repression/suppression from running rampant, and backing up into the deeper reservoirs of the mind… This is important because as Carl Jung said, “what you don’t face internally, represents itself externally as fate”. Which really just means if you don’t face your demons, they will hunt you down and give you a beating when you least suspect it. “The Wicked Flee When None Pursueth!” Don’t run away from yourself, a journal is a good first step towards authenticity and self-accountability!

10. Manage Your Time, While Going With the Flow!
Time is a limited resource, so don’t waste it… Use the time to your advantage, or it will pass you by. Smart people utilize every moment to the fullest as they realize the deeper preciousness of life… Granted sometimes this doesn’t mean keeping yourself hyper-busy all the time, quite the contrary. Sometimes decompressing is the most valuable thing to do at that given time/day/week etc. We all need time to heal and reflect on the trials and tribulations of life. Most people don’t allow themselves this time, and instead, try to remain hyper-busy in an attempt to “work” their way out of a crisis in one form or another. This doesn’t work… You can try it, and you will fail. Sooner or later, your emotional/spiritual center breaks down and forces you to self-reflect. Whether that come through a tumultuous relationship, a death in the family, or through some spiritual crisis, crises will arise that force you to slow down.

That being said, budget your time wisely. Try to make every day a building block towards your eventual goal of some form of transcendence or psychological liberation in some sense. Ultimately I don’t feel like the earth is a soul last stop, so maybe you want to prepare for the “post” launch party ahead of time!

Thanks for all your support, comments and feedback… Just trying to keep it real!
