Use Blogging to Harness a More Mindful Life (part 2)
Mindfulness is a trend that’s growing in popularity. Not only does it alleviate stress, but it allows the person implementing it to live a life of abundance and personal satisfaction. Your thoughts are streamlined as opposed to being all over the place.
In today’s hectic world, it’s easy for men and women alike to find themselves overwhelmed by options and chaos as they try to make decisions or simply enjoy being in the moment. We often live either in the past or the future, what-iffing our way through experiences instead of observing and appreciating the present.
If you become a blogger and begin utilizing this digital tool to your advantage, you’ll find that your day begins with momentum and ends with a peaceful observance of how the day unfolded. You’ll be able to motivate yourself to get things done and make changes that will elevate your life to how you wish it to be.
Bloggers have to be immersed in thoughtfulness. The process of organizing a post so that you correctly convey ideas and emotions is a strategic way to embrace the mindful process. It sets the tone for your day and gives you ample directions as to how you should be addressing each hour of the day as situations occur.
You can combine mindful meditation as you blog, stopping between paragraphs or sections to submerge yourself into deep concentration on the topic at hand. Blogging (an generally online job) doesn’t have to be done all at once.
You can save your content as a draft and come back to it after spending a few moments being carefully mindful about whatever issue it is you’re dealing with. Then report your thoughts on the blog and keep a digital record of them for you to use as a roadmap for the way you want your life to be.
Many people find it helpful to blog mindfully in an environment that contributes to your awareness. That means setting the tone with comfort and serenity. Make sure you’re blogging from a comfortable chair or couch – or even your bed on a laptop!
You can have candles, incense, soft music and lighting if you wish to be relaxed. Or, enhance the energy with open windows and sunlight, and peppy music if your goal is to rev yourself up about something.
If you want to focus on a present mindfulness, then use this blog as a way to observe life as it is in that very moment. Write down everything you think, see, hear, smell and feel. Don’t spend time mired in the pain of the past or the uncertainty of the future.
