Dying Daily #253: Mindful Lifestyle

I think this post means we have talked about mindfulness in everyday life for an entire month.

Looking at my potential topic list, I could honestly go another 30 days, but I’d like to write about some other stuff.

So how do we pull this whole month together into a mindful lifestyle?
It all starts with being present, in this moment right here.

This is important, because it is the only place you have any sort of choice, and it’s the only thing that really exists. The past and the future and our hopes and dreams and thoughts and worries are all imagination, all happening in our heads.

The present is real.

Notice everything coming in through your five senses, without judgment.

Experience them without thinking about them.

Be aware of the stories your mind is telling you, without necessarily believing them.
Be aware of the stories your emotions are telling you, without necessarily believing them.

Ask yourself if you really need to be concerned with your mood, and if your mood is “true”.

There are always things to explore mindfully, with a friendly curiosity rather than a paranoid judgment.

The alarm clock.

Traffic.

Confrontation.

Conflict.

Social Media.

Work.

Play.

Everything. 

A mindful lifestyle allows us to do what we do, without all the stories and judgments.
It allows things to just be as they are.
It allows us to be free, if we want to be.

Thank you for being a part of this blog, I am continually grateful to everyone who takes the time to read and offer feedback.

Have a great day.
