Make it a habit to practice mindfulness.
Always pay extra attention to people you meet, and interact with. Be careful of what you say. Take heed, and be selective with your words. Some people have bad days, some have lost a love one, or a recent breakup, some maybe suffering from illness, some are recovering from depression, and some are on the verge of self destruct.
What you say matters the most to some people. Your words have greater impact. It represents how you feel about yourself, and they can impact on how others think and feel. It may discourage them or encourage them. It may inspire or motivate them. Words are powerful enough to change one’s life.
Be aware of your thoughts and feelings. Your thoughts have tremendous power if you believe in them. The process of noticing, and selecting your own thoughts will help you immensely in becoming more aware. It helps you to be less reactive to negative thoughts that consumes your energy, and limiting your own growth. You should be holding positive thoughts, and pursue habitual positive actions. Your habitual actions represents who you are, it becomes your character.
Mindfulness improves your emotional and social intelligence, and it develops your empathy and compassion. Being mindful may also increase your focus and attention.
Practice self-awareness, as it can be helpful in your daily life. Meditation, Yoga, and Tai-chi are some helpful ways to improve your mental well-being as you continue to practice mindfulness.
Mindfulness can transform your entire world. The more mindful you are, the more happier the people that surrounds you, and the happier you can become.
“Be careful of your thoughts, for your thoughts become your words. Be careful of your words, for your words become your actions. Be careful of your actions, for your actions become your habits. Be careful of your habits, for your habits become your character. Be careful of your character, for your character becomes your destiny.” — Chinese proverb
