September 10, 2010 A personal value system Is my life guided by my values, or am I drifting without a moral compass? What gives life meaning? Is life a random coin-flip, or am I in charge of the decisions in my life? How to develop a personal value system A value system consists of a set of guidelines for how you want to live your life. Values are criteria for judging what is good or bad and what underlies moral principles and behavior. A value system provides structure for decision-making that allows flexibility and the possibility of change. Enhancing your spiritual life Meditation is a way of quieting your racing mind by focusing in a word, object, or process (like breathing). Mindfulness is a practice of living fully in the moment. Being aware of and appreciating the beauty around you. Being aware of your thoughts and developing control of habitual, impulsive, or undesirable reactions. Taking control of negative emotions and self-criticism and finding positive thoughts.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
