All about keeping your personal self sharp so you can better deal with life four key dimensions - body, mind, heart, soul Balance : Greek saying ‘Nothing overmuch’, balance important? What’s done in one dimension of life will affect the other three, balance and moderation in all things Time-out : need regular tune-ups, rejuvenate, a little TLC
Body in general : junior high - body goes thru weird changes, handle body with care and don’t abuse, ten ways to keep selves sharp: eat good food, relax in the tub, bike, lift weights, sleep enough, Yoga, sports, walk, stretch, aerobics, the four main ingredients; good sleep, relaxation, good nutrition, exercise Eat : “You are what you eat” First rule of thumb, listen to your body, develop own handful do’s and don’ts. Second rule, be moderate and avoid extremes, extreme eating either way = unhealthy, follow USDA food pyramid Use : feel depressed, confused, apathetic? Do what Forrest Gump did; RUN yourself better. Exercise has amazing way of giving you energy, melting stress, and clearing the mind. No single best way to exercise, 20-30 min/3 times a week Feel, not Look : don’t get too obsessed with appearance, society is hung up on ‘looks’, important is feeling good physically. Oprah “You have to change you perception. It’s not about weight - it’s caring for yourself daily” Life/Art: magazines = images, totally touched up! Don’t treat your body like a prisoner of war just to be accepted by someone else Quit : destroy body with addictive substances, often playing with ‘gateway’ drugs opens door to harsher drugs, addiction’s worst thing is you lose control, the addiction is! Refusal skill , feeling pressured? 1, ask self tough questions to make you think 2, consequences 3, suggest alternative 4, take off - get away fast

Physical Dimension• The physical dimension involves caring effectively for our physical body- eating right, getting enough rest and relaxation, sufficient exercise keeps both your body and mind healthy.
Spiritual DimensionThe spiritual dimension involves your core ,your center,your commitment to your value system.It’s a very private area of life and a supremely important one.It draws upon the sources that inspire and uplift you and tie you to the timeless truths of all humanity,and people do it very,very differently.
Mental DimensionMost of our mental development and study discipline comes through formal education.Education- continuing education,continually honing and expanding the mind-is vital mental renewal.It is extremely valuable to train the mind to stand apart and examine its own program.Organising and planning represent other forms of mental renewal.“It is said that wars are won in the general’s tent”.
Social Dimension The Social/Emotional Dimension is our investment and interaction with others around us including-how we listen and communicatehow we build and develop relationshipswhether or not we give or take in our interactions with othershow secure we feel within ourselves
Contd.The physical ,spiritual and mental dimension’s are closely related to habit 1 ,2,3 which are :-• Personal vision• Leadership.• Management. Where as social/emotional dimension focuses on habits 4,5,6 which are :-• Interpersonal leadership.• Empathic communication.• Creative cooperation.
Dimensional BalanceWhile each of the four dimensions is important on it’s own, the greatest benefit will be seen by continually seeking to improve them all in balance. Each dimension affects the others, and neglecting any one of them is really the same as neglecting them all – you will limit yourself, and prevent yourself living up to your potential unless you actively seek balance between these four
Self-RenewalThe self-renewal process must include balanced renewal in all four dimensions of our lives.
Synergy in RenewalRenewal in any dimension increases our ability to live at least one of the Seven Habits.Improvement in one habit synergistically increases our ability to live the rest.
