Wellbeing Wednesday - Understanding

Our theme for this week is understanding. We understand that it might be a little hard to grasp new routines or understand what is required of you at this moment, because of Covid-19. But at HAB we want to understand as much as possible what you are experiencing, so that we can make remote learning as smooth as possible for you.

In this context, to understand means that we have a sympathetic and compassionate awareness of other people and their feelings. This understanding of others may give us insight to how we may act towards one another, ensuring that we don’t do anything that can add negative energy to an individual’s situation.

Everyone wants to be understood, but do we really have that same desire to make sure that we ourselves understand others? As we begin to reunite with each other and people that we haven’t seen in a while, understanding is going to be an essential element of rejuvenating positive relationships. 

Our HAB values of compassion and respect play a key role when we seek to understand each other. Seeking to understand others is a way of expressing respect for their own personal identity, thoughts, feelings and experiences. It also allows us to act with compassion, as feeling understood offers deep and lasting connections.

WW understandingThe 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, written by Sean Covey, talks about 7 habits that make teenagers highly effective, as they are trying to navigate through life.

  • Habit 1 is to be proactive
  • Habit 2 is to think about your personal mission and goals in life
  • Habit 3 is to learn how to prioritise
  • Habit 4 is to have an everyone can win attitude
  • Habit five is to seek understanding
  • Habit 6 is to learn how to work together to achieve more in life
  • Habit 7 is to always try to renew yourself.

All of the habits are important, but one that really stands out during this time, is habit 5: seek first to understand, then to be understood. Bottom line, this habit states that you are more effective if you listen first and talk second; try and see things from another person’s point of view before sharing your own. When was the last time you really listened to someone? It’s really easy to get caught up with how we are feeling and how life at this moment in time is affecting us, but have you tried listening to how someone else might be feeling too? Click here to download the 'Understanding' resource pack.
