Mindful Living: Attract More of What you Actually Need

Mindful Living: Attract More of What you Actually Need

In January, we looked at the opportunity that the New Year brings, to promote reflection and self-awareness.
It can take a little time but once we have let go of the old, we have space to start new routines and habits that create new neurological pathways.

Research has shown that it takes around 2 months before a new behaviour becomes automatic so don’t be hard on yourself if it takes a little perseverance to kick start something, consistency here is key. Diarise it in and make it part of your weekly cycle.

Here are some practices, that can become part of your lifestyle and help cultivate more self-awareness:

Yoga: The slowing down and self-reflection that yoga offers amidst keeping the body fit and heathy allows for greater awareness. It has so many other benefits but that would be a whole other article all together… 😉

Journalling: Write down your thoughts and feelings to understand them more clearly. And if you struggle with stress, depression, or anxiety, keeping a journal can be a great idea. It can help you gain control of your emotions and improve your mental health.

Gratitude: There is irrefutable evidence to show that positive thinking can make you healthier. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.

The best thing of all is over time neurons that fire together wire together, new ways create new pathways we can choose the ones that send more positive ripples through the body, brain and mind. The more you practice self-awareness, the more habitual it becomes and integrates into your being to be a natural part of your everyday life.
