Learn to be More Adaptive – Jing

jing-jang-534918-mIn the Taoist tradition, humans have three types of energy; chi, jing, and shen. Let’s focus for a few minutes on jing.

Jing is called adaptive energy because the higher your levels of this energy are, the more you can adapt to and cope with whatever life throws at you without undue stress. This is vital energy – evolutionary science tells us that survival depends not on how strong you are or how clever you are or how pretty you are, but how adaptive you are.

Below are 4 ways we can learn how to be more adaptive in our daily lives.

1. Accept that you are a work in progress– Remember that we are ever changing and evolving and that is a good thing. Hold a flexible attitude to life. Even if you are experiencing something negative, something challenging, or something mundane, you will develop and grow accordingly.

2. Stay realistic– Living happily is about accepting your limitations without putting yourself down. Recognize which situations you are capable of adapting to and those you are not. Sometimes you can change a little but sometimes you cannot change at all. Keep your goals realistic by recognising in which areas you can become more adaptive and reflexive.

3. Mistakes happen– Human beings are far from infallible. Part of the process of learning is to make mistakes and learn from them. The more we learn from our mistakes the more we learn about who we are. We adapt through knowledge and learning.

4. Learn to forgive yourself– It is essential that we become more forgiving of ourselves if we want to remain adaptive. Becoming hung up over the past will only serve to make us less resilient in the face of trouble. Forgive yourself in order to accept change and adapt to new situations.

Working on these 4 tips can help you become more adaptive and forgiving to yourself. Using your energy to be constructive and kind has the power to change your whole outlook on life!
