Setting our own standards
Updated: Aug 31, 2020
One of the things we as lifecoaches lead, is communicating boundaries. To do so, enable us to easier say yes to what we want or need, and what feels positive and useful. How do we then know what to say yes or no to? This decision making is essential for our wellbeing and health, which is the area we often can start with. It's about setting our own standards and not fall below them, within our means, to have the kinds and quality we want. Conflicts can arise when others try to stop us from living according to our levels, but can instead can be used to empower us in ways it makes it harder for us to be dominated.
What is a good standard? It can be setting our preferences in terms of types of food, brands and time. Holding onto these also enable us a better starting point to move on from, and as long as we keep these choices within the lowest level of income, nobody has the right to stop us. My examples are that I take honey in my tea, not sugar. I eat gluten-free and lactose-free and no meat besides fish, and turkey on occasion. I eat organic when I can and chocolate every day. I need to do laundry once a week besides sleeping every night for at least 7 hrs, but rather 9. I also need non-prescription medicine and vitamins and be outside in the fresh air every day for a couple of hours without freezing, among other things. This enables me to be a loving person who can be of service. And this is what God will provide, at all cost since it is also my human rights and what I have been fighting for the last ten years, since I have been estopped from having any type of regular income, by the Swedish state's delays and refusals.
Which boundaries do you have? Where do you draw the line? Which are your essential needs and do you respect others when they are saying no to you? Make a list of your habits and ask yourself what you can choose instead, to make a new and better habit, with better products and services.
