Mindlessness

Mindlessness, or going on autopilot, can result in missing the good things in life or ignoring important information about relationships or health.

The antidote is to practice to pay more car...

Tips to practice Mindfulness
  • Allow your mind to wander and gently return awareness to your breath sensation.
  • Notice any tendency to be hard on yourself. See this kind of judgment and gently return awareness to your breath.
  • Embrace relaxation and being present with awareness.
  • Expect to notice more things, including more painful things.
  • Practice staying present. Stay open to all the possibilities in each situation.
  • Be careful not to try too hard. Experience life directly as it unfolds, paying careful and open-hearted attention.
  • When starting a new activity

    Start a meeting with 2 minutes of silence, your attention focussed on your breath. Or take a few mindful breaths before starting your exercise routine.

    Happy Happy People

    Happiness is not a goal or something to pursue at a later time. Emotional health is a skill to be mastered, not a destination to eventually arrive at.

    And being happy is being linked to an active lifestyle, a better diet, better sleep, better weight management, lower stress levels, an improved immune system, and increased life expectancy.

    Analyze and Identify

    Get perspective and clarity on which area of your life you have to focus on. Start by analyzing, examining and identifying the problem areas:

    • Fun and Recreation
    • Physical Environment
    • Career
    • Finances
    • Personal Growth
    • Romance
    • Family and Friends
    • Health
    Productivity is a deeply personal thing
    We all have different brains and, therefore, different preferences, perspectives, and situations where we feel most effective. In order to find what works, you have to understand your own psychology.
    Action has momentum
    So developing personal rituals to get your own snowball rolling downhill is far more important than what yerba mate supplements to take, or what yoga mat to sit on in the morning. 
    Work as a linear function

    We assume that the amount of productive output we create is directly proportional to the number of hours we input. But the truth is that most thoughtful, brain-intensive work does not unfold like this. The only work that is linear is really basic, repetitive stuff.
