Meditation is one of the most profound activities you can do to focus your mind and create space in an age of instant gratification.
While many think the purpose of meditation is to ‘clear your mind’, the true magic happens when you begin to develop focus. By having a single-pointed focus, such as your breath or a mantra, you are able to gain control over your thoughts.
Since most of us live in a state of constant reaction due to overstimulation, this ability to slow down and observe our thoughts will begin to deliver a more peaceful and lower-stress life.
2. Mindful Activities
Mindfulness isn’t only for meditation. As you go about your day, choose a few activities to practice more mindfully. This could be having a shower or doing the dishes—anything that you usually just race through or ‘get done’ without thinking about it.
When you perform these tasks, bring your entire attention to the activity. For example, with washing dishes, notice the way the water feels on your skin and the sound of the splashes as you clean.
As you become more mindful, you’ll notice more and more activities can be completed with this level of attention. What’s more is that, when you are focused on these small beauties, the constant chatter of the monkey mind is put to rest—if only for a few minutes.
3. Ground Yourself
Grounding is a technique that is used to redirect energy back to the earth and become present in your body.
There are a number of ways you can do this including getting out in nature, bathing in the ocean water, or even placing your bare feet on the ground’s surface.
However you choose to ground yourself, turn to this method whenever you are feeling off-balance. Just a few minutes per day can reinforce your spiritual health.
4. Open Your Mind
Be at peace with the fact that we don’t know it all and open your mind up to the possibilities.
Read spiritual books or try going to church to surround yourself with like-minded people who are on the same journey as you. Organizations, such as the Parkway fellowship, offer online and on-location services to help you reconnect with your spirituality in life and nourish your mind.
5. Practice Gratitude
Last but certainly not least, make gratitude a part of your daily routine.
At first, this may take a conscious effort to sit and write down the things you are grateful for in your life. However, with time, you’ll begin to notice gratitude rules your emotions and amplifies the quality of your life without even trying.
By rerouting your energy to focus on the things you are grateful for, you begin to draw more of this feeling into your life. Beyond this, abandonment of negative thoughts raises your vibration for healthy spirituality.
