There are times when you need to give your full attention to what you are doing and how you are feeling in the present. Being mindful means, you’re alert and aware.

Too often, life’s distractions take us away from living consciously. Learn to understand your current situation instead of resisting it. Know that living consciously requires effort. Examine your thoughts and feelings. Grow wiser and more skillful.

Ask yourself if you like the person you are. Work towards becoming the best version of you, every day. It is important to welcome change and tolerate discomfort.

Being mindful allows you to have better self-awareness. Treat yourself and others with compassion. Being kind and forgiving will free yourself from anger and resentment. Negative energy will only impede the progress you’ve made to this point.

Continue to overcome challenges. Conscious living gives you greater strength and energy. Enjoy a sense of purpose. Believe in your ability to create the results you want.

Living consciously means you are aware of the fuel you put in your body. Maintaining a healthy and balanced diet is demanding but well worth it. Sharing meals with loved ones is also a great way to grow healthier relationships.

Meditate daily. Calm your mind and sharpen your concentration. Gain insights about yourself. Feel more connected and secure with your thoughts and decision making.

Today, make conscious choices rather than automatically repeating old habits. Feel fully awake. Appreciate the beauty and peace that life provides.
