Would you believe me, if I told you that you are already performing some of the spiritual practices on your day-to-day life?!
Yes, dear that is right! Spirituality is intertwined in it all. Can’t run from that!
Here let me give you few examples.
As little and insignificant as it may seem: cooking, eating, walking, doing chores and even having a conversation are all considered to be daily life spiritual practices too.
Now, all what we want to do with it, of course, is to be more mindful during these activities. To increase our mindfulness expansion.
Why? Because our actions shape who we are. Our lifestyle and our journey of self-discovery build our identities.
Anything you do with your practice becomes you.
For this reason, I want to share with you 3 easy pizzy game-changing habits that you can integrate into your life to increase your mindfulness level even further:
Setting your intentions first thing in the morning is pure magic. Uhmm... it may sound tricky, but trust me it isn't!
Honestly, I myself was struggling a lot, because I had been going through all kind of emotions during a single day: feeling of overwhelm, anxiety, sudden sadness and pressure. Cause, hey, days can truly be chaotic with all the feelings swirling around, seeking to accomplish all the things in personal “to do “ list.
Obviously I put it on myself for absolutely no valid reasons, but I found one thing really helpful there.
As soon as I was fully awake, I started verbally and loudly telling myself what I intend to do during the next 24 hours: things I want to accomplish, how I plan to spend my day.
Sometimes I even read affirmations and uplifting quotes. Because words matter.
This practice definitely becomes a morning routine shifter that uplifts the whole day!
Writing in general can help you to dig out the things that you might be avoiding deep inside yourself.
It is a great tool to clear your mind no matter how you are feeling. Writing what's on your mind helps you understand yourself better and well to say the least…it's kinda like a free therapy session.
The secret of it all is letting go, going with the flow. Welcoming all ideas in, without too much overthinking.
Consistency is the way too. Picking it up as a habit and writing every day will also help your inner wisdom flow out through you with more ease.
Personally, for me journaling started as a hobby, but it is now an important life routine of my life that I cannot live without.
Gratitude is my personal favourite, because expressing gratitude makes me feel more grounded.
With this practice I instantly feel being put into a bigger perspective, feeling encouraged to look at the bigger picture of life.
How you can integrate this practice?
Every night, right before sleep, think about at least 3 things you are grateful about.
It could be anything from family, friends, career or opportunities to something that brings you joy and happiness for your daily life.
Or it can be even deeper, finding gratitude in the bad situations, because however hard it might be to find it - it is still there.
Gratitude is truly a small and humbling practice with a huge impact. And a grateful heart is a magnet for a grateful world with more divine possibilities.
We discuss gratitude deeper at "Episode 17: Blooming Gratitude" on our Podcast. You can check it out and share with us your own perspective and opinion.
I invite you to take 5 minutes every day to engage yourself in your preferred spiritual practice.
Also, I am very curious about one thing you have been consistently focusing on lately through your own spiritual view, so feel welcome to leave a comment :)
