Mind Full or Mindful?
3 Mindful Practices To Enhance Your Wealth Journey
In order for us to change and transform, we must become mindful in all aspects of our lives. When we make changes from a state of presence, we rewrite our story with a healthier view on what wealth stands for.
Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are, and what we’re doing. Not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. It is a way of living. As a result, it brings awareness and caring into everything we do and cuts down needless stress.
According to neuroscience research, mindfulness practices dampen activity in our amygdala and increase the connections between the amygdala and prefrontal cortex. Both of these parts of the brain help us to be less reactive to stressors and to recover better from stress when we experience it. Mindfulness practices demonstrate positive benefits for our health, happiness, work, and relationships. Additionally, mindfulness sparks innovation. As a result, mindfulness can lead us to effective, resilient, low-cost responses to seemingly overwhelming problems.
1. Mindfully Declutter Your Workspace to Enhance Your Wealth Journey
A cluttered desk is a cluttered mind. When you approach your work with mindfulness you enjoy it more. Turn the act of clearing and organizing your desk into a mindful moment. Don’t think of it as a chore but rather as setting up the right conditions to perform at your best. Check out our recent blog about 7 Ways To Approach Financial Decluttering in Your Life.
2. Find Gratitude In Your Wealth Journey
When we are consumed with our thoughts, worries, or dramas, we stop paying attention. Our mind becomes full of racing thoughts, yet we simultaneously become less mindful. Feeling grateful requires noticing everything that happens in our life. We are wired to focus on negative things. Practicing daily gratitude boosts our happiness by grounding us to the present moment. Reserve some time, preferably before you go to sleep, to capture all the good things that you should be thankful for. Recap your day, and think of all the people you met, all the moments you enjoyed, and what you achieved or learned.
3. Slow Down & Be Mindful In Your Wealth Journey
Slow down so you can reconnect with the present moment and flow. When you rush from one thing to another, you are doing stuff but not performing at your best. Taking more time to do something will help you appreciate what you are doing as well as improve your end product. As a result, you will become more productive and effective . In other words, you won’t need to do things over.
Wealth is living in a state of prosperity and mindfulness. This involves components of money’s energy, exemplified by Amida’s 5 Pillars of Wealth: Career, Personal Growth, Relationships, Finance, and Health. Every moment is a new opportunity to become more mindful in our wealth journey. As we continue to change and transform, we rewrite our story with a healthier view on what wealth stands for.
