3 Tips for Self Awareness & Grounding
As we learn how to stay indoors more often and seeing other people less, we can find ourselves falling into negative thought patterns. Our bodies can slow down during this time, not allowing energies to flow through us.
In this blog, we will talk about small ways we can practice mindfulness daily to cope with our emotions or to show up in the world in the best way possible.
Mindfulness is our ability to stay in the now, experiencing what is happening in the present moment and focusing our thoughts on being. It may be difficult to not think about the past and where we are headed, but focusing on the present can find us loving life and those around us.
Get in touch with your emotions
Our bodies can communicate with us through our emotions. We can practice mindfulness throughout our day by checking in with our feelings and where the emotions originate. We can do this by venting through physical movement. Flowing through the motions of Pilates or running can express these hidden emotions. We can also journal our thoughts to get in touch with how we are feeling.
2. Observe your thoughts
Take a moment now to close your eyes and calm your mind. There may be random thoughts that appear. What emotions do they bring? Work through these thoughts to focus on the sounds around you and show gratitude to your environment. Calm your body and mind to find solace in the present moment.
3. Shift your perspective
Our whole world is shaped by our own perspective. We must look towards people who do not live in the Western world to understand that we can be happy with not many belongings. We must understand that the universe works with us and not against us daily. We can shift our perspective by understanding what brings negative and positive influences and understand that there are lessons to be learned and experiences to be had. Nothing is permanent in this life.
We hope you can bring these three mindfulness activities into your daily routine.
I bow to the divine in you. Namaste.
