Signs of mental decline or mental incline?
Dear Sweet People,
How often do you ask yourself how you are doing or how you are feeling ... right at this moment?
One key sign of mental decline is asking the same question or same kinds of questions repeatedly. I laughed when I noticed that criteria topped the list identifying mental decline. How often have I asked people in the past 30 plus years ... "How are you feeling?" or "Why are you unhappy about that?" or "Why do you believe that?"
I always considered such devoted curiosity and fascination were signs of mental incline!!!
So ... here are some mental incline questions:
"What am I thinking right now?"
"What am I feeling right now?"
"What am I doing right now ... and why?
Ask away ... more than several times a day ... these questions allow us to take a moment to pause and observe ourselves from the inside and outside ... these questions allow us to educate ourselves about ourselves ... and ultimately provide self-knowledge which leads to self-change.
Ah ... it's all a matter of perspective or "make believe" or make up a belief about the meaning of who we are and what we do.
Enjoy your mental incline.
