Living With Mindfulness | NLP

Introduction

Mindfulness is a state of being aware of your surroundings and achieving a deeper sense of understanding. This technique is mostly used for therapy. In case you are wondering how you can achieve this state for yourself, here are a few tips to help you live a mindful lifestyle.

Do not Place High Expectations on Yourself

Having goals is a very important aspect of the human lifestyle, however you should not overburden yourself with unassailable tasks because it only tends to further your frustrations. Furthermore, it stops you from attaining a peace of mind that will enable you to relax and focus on the important things in your life. Therefore, understanding your limitations will help you to perform better at tasks.

Accepting Failure and Learning to Deal with it

Failure is a common aspect in society the earlier you learn to cope with failed endeavors, the better your chances of achieving comfort. Dealing with failure means that you are able to adjust and plan a course of action that is more beneficial to you. The action should help you navigate your problems with relative ease and wisdom.

Be Open to New Experiences

Being open to new experiences does not mean that you let your guard down, instead it’s a call for you to experiment new ways of living that are beneficial to you. This scenario allows you to meet new people and charter a new course of doing things which allows you to understand people and your surroundings more.

Abstain from the Distractors in your Life

Restraining yourself from the various addictions, whether alcohol or smoking will go a long way in rebuilding yourself and discovering an inner sense of peace. Moreover, people who are always negative are bad for you; therefore, you should avoid their company. Instead, focus on building positive relationships that will create a platform for you to engage the society on another level.

Have a Semblance of Gratitude

Being grateful for the life you were given and the people around you is core to achieving inner peace. Appreciating each and every aspect of your life whether positive or negative is a pillar of determining how you will go forward with your life. Grace cannot be bought, rather its acquired and built when you exude a warm feeling and vibe around yourself.

Learn to Take Time and Meditate

Meditation is a key aspect of mindful living because it allows you to gather your thoughts. Take some time off your busy schedule and look for a quiet place with no disturbances to practice the different meditation techniques. You can also engage in a private Yoga session and consolidate your thoughts on life by releasing them to the world. Meditation provides a safe space for reflection and building up your stature to approach a new day.

Do not be Over Possessive or Controlling

You should not try to control everything that happens in your life, rather you should learn to adjust to how things shape up. People don’t like controlling individuals since they are very hard to communicate with. Thus, it’s important that you do not micromanage everything taking place in your life. Once you accept that, you will be able to compose your mind.

Stick to your Plans and Goals

Do not allow peer pressure and other people to influence the decisions you make. You should make it a priority stick to the plan you have set out for yourself. Once you do this, you’ll be able to appreciate yourself and impact other people’s lives positively.

Conclusion

The aforementioned tips are core tenets that can help you achieve living a mindfulness. It’s all about accepting yourself and the environment that you are in. For you to realize your full potential, it’s important that you incorporate patience and self-will to rediscover yourself. Mindful living is all about taking bold steps to better your life while empowering those around you.

Just about every person in the world knows the importance of exercise. I could make a list about 100 pages long but I’ll save that for another day. So lets stick to this topic for now.

I consider myself to be a fairly atletic guy. I exercise 5-6 times per week and I really enjoy it (although my hamstrings tend to disagree). About 2 years ago when I started getting interested in how peoples’ mind worked I came across something called mindfulness. Here’s a link to my other blog on mindfulness Mindfulness for the everyday person. In a nutshell mindfulness teaches you how to watch your thoughts as they come and go throughout your mind.

As I practiced being more mindful on a daily basis I noticed it was carrying over into my gym routine. Instead of nervously looking around to see if anyone was watching me or worrying about how bad I smelled I no longer cared. I was in my own personal zone. Continue reading “Mindful Exercise”
