One of the exercises we learned at YPO forum training was the monthly MEPS reflection. MEPS — Mental, Emotional, Physical, and Spiritual — are four areas of life that are essential to well being. Here’s how the exercise works:
- Mental – How am I feeling, 1-10 (10 is best), mentally? How would I describe my mental state?
- Emotional – How am I doing emotionally, 1-10? How would I describe my emotional state?
- Physical – How am I doing physically, 1-10? How would I describe my physical state?
- Spiritual – How am I doing spiritually, 1-10? How would I describe my spirituality?
Go through the MEPS reflection with a close friend or small group on a monthly basis and use it as a way to continuously reflect on life and work to focus more attention on areas that need help.
What else? What are some more thoughts on the monthly MEPS reflection?
