The ability to say “no” to yourself to put off short-term gratification ( from daily temptations like social media or junk food) for the long-term gain is an important life-skill. 

Set regular goals, break big goals down into smaller milestones. 

It will allow you to maximize your strengths and manage your weaknesses.

It will force you to question your assumptions.

We’re often critical of others, while ignorant of our own flaws. Self-awareness helps turn the mirror on ourselves and prevents hypocritical behavior.

It is a foundational practice for improving self-awareness. To focus solely on your breathing is to focus on a key internal process. 

Take a deep breath before you act, especially when a situation triggers anger or frustration.

Record a speech or presentation and evaluate your posture and hand gestures.

Before acting on a decision, ask yourself “Why?” Follow up your response with another “Why?” And then a third. 

It helps you cut through self-deceit and one-dimensional views you might hold. 

Putting your feelings into words has a therapeutic effect on your brain; if you’re unable to articulate how you feel, that can create stress.
