Have you made a list of the ways your behavior changes in a mentally stable versus mentally unstable state? This is the LAST video in the Mental Stability Series. If you missed the previous videos, Part ONE explains the exercise!
Do you complete chores even when you feel less stable? Do you show up to work when you feel a little shaky? Take a moment to pause and think about your behavior. Are there things that change when you feel less stable? Or we can look at the positive end of the matter. When you’re at your best, what can you accomplish that becomes increasingly difficult in a negative space or when you feel less stable?
For me, when I’m mentally stable, I can invite friends over, pitch conferences and speaking gigs, and discipline my kids with calm and kindness. When I get overwhelmed or stressed, I notice that some of these behaviors get knocked off the to-do list. I’m working to keep doing the hard things even when I don’t feel like it. What are you working on? What do you wish to do, even when you don’t feel like it?
