Exercise: Valued Living Questionnaire
This first exercise will ask you to identify how you value ten different components of your life using the Valued Living Questionnaire. As you read each component, ask yourself how important each of these areas is to your life, regardless of how much time of effort you now put into fulfilling the needs of that area. For example, maybe you highly value “self-care” regardless of the fact that you devote little time to it. Rate the importance of each component on a scale of 0 to 10, with 0 being not important at all and 10 being extremely important. Do your best to rate them honestly, according to your own true feelings, not to what you think you should rate them. You’ll then use your responses to the Valued Living Questionnaire in the following exercises, which will help you move toward engaging in what you value.
