Being and Doing
Personal development coach Fabienne Cusinier asks you to slow down and cherish the every day moments.
“How are you doing? Have you been busy?”
“I am busy, busy, busy…”
These little sentences are being increasingly heard these days and some of us share the feeling of being overwhelmed in this Little Red Dot.
I am inviting a shift towards the fundamental question:
“How are you? How have you been?”
We are human beings, not human doings, right?
At the same time, being doesn’t mean doing nothing. Being and doing are both important. The key point for most of us is to find our own balance between being and doing. A way to get in touch with the deepest part of ourselves – to be – to be fully engaged in our life and at the same time live our life in a constant busy mode and a fast-paced environment.
Is our self-worth only measured on how busy we are or on how much we are doing? The idea here is to shift from constant automatic and reactive busyness on autopilot to consciously being; actively involved and engaged in our daily interactions, activities, environment and life.
What is it like for you to be fully in the present moment? Whether you are in the shower, commuting, in a meeting, playing with your kids, having dinner with friends or travelling with your family?
Here are 5 ways to practise being conscious daily:
- Take a couple of deep breaths.
- Taste your cup of water, tea, coffee as if you never tasted it before.
- Give the person you are with your full attention.
- Give your phone a break.
- Allow yourself to be, just be.
Does it seem too easy to bring any benefit? Well, give it a try and start noticing how you are, in this state of being.
We’ll speak again soon.
