Awareness can be thought of as "paying attention; staying awake." The opposite of awareness would be to go through life in a kind of "fog", caught up in automatic functioning and not quite aware of what is going on in the here and now. When one is "caught up" in the emotionality of a given situation, one's capacity for awareness is hindered. Staying alert and being a better observer provides a way out of emotional-reactivity.
An important dimension of awareness is Self-Awareness. Clarifying one's own beliefs, values, anchoring principles, mission, vision and life goals provides a foundation for better decisions.
