“Back to life… back to reality…”
What Is Conscious Living?
5 Ways To Head back To Reality, Consciously
If you’re finding the transition “back to reality” difficult at this time, try adding one (or more) of the practices listed below into your daily routine.
For centuries, people have been meditating to relieve stress. Studies have shown that mediation leads to decreased cell volume in the cerebral hemisphere (the emotional centre of our brains). When you meditate, you’re relaxing your stress and fear centres, calming your mind and entering a new state of consciousness.
Try this short meditation out when tensions are high.
2. Think Before You Speak
If someone says something that isn’t sitting right with you, take five slow and steady breaths to drown out the anger you feel rising through you. Then, kindly respond from a place of love.
When you think before you speak, you give clarity to a situation. Even if you don’t see eye-to-eye with someone, you allow the conversation to be more peaceful in nature by speaking calmly.
3. Live In Your Alignment
Feeling stuck in the present times? Find what moves you and inspires you.
We’re all born with a blueprint of our life, and when we live in alignment with our truest selves, we feel centred, relaxed and at ease.
Try unblocking any of the limiting beliefs you may have, then write down what it means to be in alignment for you. You may feel called to change careers or to simply go with the flow. Once you’ve written down what this looks like for you, write down simple, actionable steps to rise to your highest self.
4. Give gratitude
By taking the time to share gratitude, you relax into the present moment, releasing stress and opening yourself up to profound change. Having a daily gratitude practice increases your self-awareness and places you in a more present, calm state.
Write down five things you’re grateful for each day and keep this practice going for at least 21 more. After 21 days, you’ll start to see a shift in your mindset and will consciously seek others who live grateful lives.
