Do you want to tackle the week with a smile on your face? You need to try this if you don’t want to have another bad day.
We live in the age of distraction. Most of us are not aware of our mind chatter. Rather, our thoughts control us. In order to feel more in control of our minds and our lives, to find the sense of balance that eludes us, we need to step out of this current, to pause, so read our guide on how putting your phone down can make you more successful.
We need to live more in the moment. Living in the moment, also called mindfulness, is a state of active, open, intentional attention on the present.
Mindful people are happier, more exuberant, more empathetic, and more secure. They have higher self-esteem and are more accepting of their own weaknesses. Check out our beginners guide to mindfulness here.
Throughout Matt Killingsworth’s research on happiness, he asked more than 600,000 people to report on their happiness levels and whether they were thinking about the past, the present, or the future. Killingsworth learned that dwelling on plans can actually make us unhappy. Instead, we should embrace and focus on what’s going on in our lives right now.
Cultivating mindfulness will help you achieve your goals and enjoy life more. In fact, you’re more productive when you’re mindful. But more importantly, being present is undoubtedly the only way to enjoy life to the fullest!
