Unit 8: Integral Exercises and Practices
After reviewing the exercises and practices experienced in this course, most of them were very beneficial in my life. It was hard to narrow it down to two, but I had to due to discussion purposes. The two that were the most beneficial to me were the Loving Kindness practice and the Subtle Mind Practice. The Loving Kindness has helped me realize one of my weaknesses and that would be negative behaviors due to me speaking my mind at anytime. It has helped me relax and work through these negative emotions and behaviors and share love and kindness instead of hatefulness toward myself or others. The second is the Subtle Mind practice. The Subtle Mind practice has aided in me finding my inner self and open my heart and mind to others and new experiences. This practice is so relaxing! To implement these practices into my personal life, I will continue performing these practices to train the mind to continue on the path of human flourishing. I will continue to at least practice three times weekly and more often as needed, especially if I realize that I am starting to wonder down the wrong path of fostering mental fitness. Also, I will change up the practices and exercises when needed to meet the need of the situation at hand. I look forward to continuing on this path to human flourishing, mental fitness, and integral health!
