The idea of being mindful - being present or more conscious of life as it happens - is something I've really been focusing on improving this year.
Why? Well, being consistently mindful is truly the only way to live life to the fullest :)
When you're consciously 'present' in your daily life...
...you enjoy your time with your friends and family more, you see every situation with more clarity, you enjoy your food in a different way and you're even more productive!
Now, this is a skill that takes practice, but it's SO worth it.
Practice these 5 steps to shift your consciousness into the present moment TODAY.
Step 1 - Be here now.
Become aware of your thinking. If you find your mind wandering to anxious thoughts about the future or past, bring yourself back into the present moment. Focus on what you're doing and enjoy it!
Step 2 - Become a good listener.
We're all guilty of only half-listening to someone during a conversation. Instead of thinking about what you have to do later on or about what you're going to say next, practice being present and just enjoy the time you're spending with them.
Step 3 - Do one thing at a time.
Stop multi-tasking! Do one task at a time, slowly and deliberately. Make each action important and filled with intention. This will boost your productivity.
Step 4 - Eat slowly.
In a fast-paced, busy world, it's extremely easy to cram food in without much thought or intention. Remind yourself before you start a meal to savor each bite and really appreciate the food you're eating. (You'll eat less this way too!)
Step 5 - Learn to meditate.
Become silent and still (even for only 5 minutes a day!) and become aware of your thoughts. This will ground you and will actually train your brain to naturally stay in the present, in your daily life.
This simple act of mindfulness will enhance your mood, health, relationships and so much more...
...so give it a try this week! :)
Oh and THIS BLEW ME AWAY! Did you miss it!?
Ken Wilber's live online event last week (called Your Superhuman Potential), was a life-changing experience for me so I just wanted to make sure you were there too?
If something came up and you weren't able to attend, I have some amazing news...
...You can watch the REPLAY of the entire event right here!
That's right, for a very limited time ONLY, Ken is showing a replay of his rare event...
...where he pulls back the curtain on the unique time we're living in & how this directly impacts you and YOUR abundance. (This part really shocked & surprised me!)
Ken has been called the smartest man on the planet and now I can absolutely see why! The best part is - he dedicates his life to helping people activate their full spectrum of potential...
And he wants to help YOU realize your true potential, so you can start living your greatest dreams and desires.
