One way to measure our experience of wellness for ourselves(and even in teams) is in terms of four fundamental aspects of being: Mind, Heart, Body and Spirt.
The image above, or map, represents an ideal balance of these qualities within an individual or team--with all four inner circles appearing equal in size and with significant amount of overlap or intersection. On this lovely Monday, what would your Map of Awareness look like? How could you use this map to help change or modify these qualities for a more balanced map?
now it's your turn!
Redraw the four circles as they might seem within yourself or your organization, with the size of each circle representing the relative amount of time, energy and awareness you bring to each aspect, and the amount of overlap representing mutual support and integration.
