Act with Awareness
Nonreactivity scale is normalized to 8..40 for better comparison with other scales.
Observing. Observation entails in the ways we use our sensory awareness. It involves how we see, feel, and perceive the internal and external world around us and select the stimuli that require our attention and focus.
Describing. The statements evaluating descriptive qualities study the way we label our experiences and express them in words to ourselves and others.
Act with Awareness. Mindfulness is closely related to self-awareness and calculated actions. This facet studies the movements we choose after attending to the information present at the moment. It delves deep into whether we can act out of quick judgment and get out of the autopilot mode before responding to a situation.
Nonjudging. Non-judgmental inner experience is tied in with not letting the inner critic take a toll on our happiness and positive state of mind. It calls for self-acceptance and unconditional empathy for oneself and others.
Nonreactivity. This aspect refers to active detachment from negative thoughts and emotions so that we can accept their existence and choose not to react to them. Non-reactivity makes way for emotional resilience and restores mental balance.
