I think we can all agree that we want to be more mindful in our lives. Not only does practising mindfulness increase your sense of calm, but it can make you more focused on what’s important in life.
The question is, how do you actually go about “increasing” mindfulness in your daily life?
The truth is, it’s not exactly difficult, as long as you remain consistent and cultivate the right habits.
Here are 7 habits of mindful people that they rarely talk about:
1) They hold their thoughts lightly
Practicing mindfulness literally means taking a step back from your mind and watching it work. Highly mindful people do this constantly and come to the profound realization that they don’t have to believe all their thoughts. This gives a mindful person enormous liberation from conditioned thought patterns and negative self-talk.
2) They feel what they’re feeling
A highly mindful person knows that it’s impossible to be perpetually happy. To experience the good, you also have to experience the bad. Therefore, they don’t avoid or resist negative emotions. Instead, they embrace and accept them because they realize that this is the only way they’ll be able to truly move on.
