Rock Your 2019 With The ACT Matrix
Now that the Christmas and New Year celebrations are done and dusted, it's time to move into January 2019 with a fresh start. To do that we need to become aware of what we’re currently doing. To do that, I use to check where I’m at in my life, is The ACT Matrix, aka - the Acceptance Commitment Theory Matrix, and if you ask me it’s one of the best EQ tools modern day psychology has to offer
The ACT Matrix is a powerful EQ tool which shows you the best version of yourself (or who you want to be), and the worst version of yourself (or who you don't consciously want to be). It helps you identify the behaviours and actions that you do which keep you moving away from the best version of yourself, thus giving you the awareness to do something about it! Download the tool, print it off and fill it out to give yourself the assessment of where your life is at right now. Are there are any destructive behaviours that you want eradicated from your life in 2019? Can you see any ingrained negative patterns which seem to spiral out of control? The great thing about becoming aware of these patterns is that once aware, you can start to unpick them make a change.
If you're unsure how to go about making this change or you’re unsure of how to unpick negative patterns then get in touch to find out about my emotional intelligence coaching packages.
The ACT Matrix can be used for all sorts of life situations, whether it's a case of self sabotage in relationships, emotional explosions that you can’t seem to control, all the way through to abusing substances as a coping mechanism - the trick is that it shows you your patterns in black and white so you can start working on them straight away.
You can find a full explanation of how to use the ACT Matrix on my blog including my own example demonstrating how toxic my life used to be when it felt like it was out of my control - which thankfully is no longer the case.
If you like the ACT Matrix and you want to know more about how you can identify, unpick and release the emotions that keep you stuck from being the best version of yourself then get in touch to find out more about what I can help you with.
Let’s make your 2019 rock ;)
