Sacramento, CA, October 06, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- How did you celebrate your 30th birthday? The Self-Awareness Institute is dishing out something special with it's birthday cake this year: the launch of Self-Awareness Day, the first annual celebration that's all about… you.
Andrea Lambert, LMFT founded The Self-Awareness Weekend (SAW) on October 8, 1983 to provide intensive focused counseling and fast results. According to Lambert, "Self-awareness is the conscious, direct observation of your internal thoughts and feelings in order to understand, accept or change various aspects of yourself. I chose self-awareness as my focus because it truly is the key to greater success and happiness in life."
Over the last 30 years, Lambert and her Self-Awareness Weekend co-leaders have supported more than 2,500 people to release their emotional pain, remove the source of self-defeating behaviors and reclaim their lives with a renewed sense of passion and purpose. Participants of SAW report that the tools and transformation they received at their Weekend have not only enhanced their lives, but also enabled them to become better spouses, parents, and employees.
Self-Awareness Day is the brainchild of current SAW co-leader Shannon Lee, who is also the Director of the Sacramento-based Self-Awareness Institute. Lee explains, "There are so many people out there who could benefit from SAW, but they cannot attend the program in person. My vision for Self-Awareness Day is to provide tips, tools and resources to support the general public, to educate and inspire people to stretch outside of their comfort zone and see the possibilities for positive change."
Self-Awareness Day 2013 is all about individual awareness and growth, and its website contains several articles, including a downloadable 14-page report, "How to Create a Great Life: The Top 12 Tips from the Self-Awareness Weekend." In future years, Lee plans to incorporate resources for self-awareness in schools and at the workplace.
Here are Lee's 5 Tips for Creating Greater Self-Awareness:
1. Pay attention to your thoughts, feelings and actions.
2. Identify and remove your emotional triggers and hot buttons.
3. Acknowledge and shift your limiting beliefs.
4. Replace old strategies that don't work anymore.
5. Develop and strengthen your internal resources.
