Practicing mindfulness helps you in increasing your consciousness so you can make deliberate choices rather than relying on emotional and subconscious habits.
To effectively practice mindfulness, learn the art of observing the link between your feelings and the events in your life, and vice versa.
Remember the law of cause and effect. At the same time try to find the effect and the cause of events – it’s a chain reaction.
If you train yourself not to react to what you feel within, it provides you with a pearl of new-found wisdom. This wisdom helps in making better decisions. It starts reflecting in the way you will carry yourself and people will notice it. Some might resent that change in you, while some will start heeding to your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions.
Refrain from judging what you experience through life’s everyday events as good or bad and learn to describe or define what you experience (maybe through Journaling), the myriad of feelings you go through when you encounter the spikes and valleys in your day to day living experience. This metacognition exercise shows a new you, to you.
Cheers and good luck.
