How Can Conscious Living Transform Your Life? Read This.

“In this world, people tend to live unconsciously. They get so caught up in the busyness of their lives that they forget to look at life closely and appreciate it.” – Thich Nhat Hanh.

Living consciously is a way of understanding yourself and your connection with the world you live in. It’s about being aware of what you’re doing while doing it, being present in every moment. 

Being conscious is a journey that takes some time, but don’t be discouraged. Remember that everything worth achieving takes time. Please don’t focus on how long it may take you to become conscious; instead, be happy about how far you’ve already come on your journey! So often, we stress ourselves out by rushing around, trying to get things done. We forget that rushing is no fun. It can be pretty dangerous. When we run around frantically, we don’t take the time to think about what we’re doing and why — which means we could end up hurting ourselves or someone else in the process!

Too often, people are so lost in their thoughts that they become completely unaware of their immediate surroundings. They walk into walls or down streets without looking where they’re going; they run red lights and almost kill pedestrians. It’s no wonder that there are countless amounts of accidents each day! If you wish to live your life mindfully and consciously, you’ll need to slow down and learn how to pay attention.

As Thich Nhat Hanh says, “To enjoy a flower, you have to stop for a moment and look at it.” Living consciously isn’t just about slowing down. It’s also about taking the time to observe your life as it unfolds around you. It’s about being aware of yourself, interacting with others, and understanding what motivates people’s actions.

What is Conscious Living?

Living consciously is all about looking closely at your surroundings and taking the time to appreciate them fully. If we’re always on the go — rushing through our day, trying to get things done — then we’ll never be able to appreciate what life has given us indeed. We’ll miss out on so many beautiful moments that are happening right in front of our eyes if we don’t take the time to appreciate them.

Though it can be complex and unfamiliar at first, living mindfully and consciously is a skill that we can learn. Like any other skill, we need to practice to get better at it. The more you live in this “conscious” state of being, the easier it will become for you — and the better off you’ll be! You may find yourself feeling calmer than usual or happier than ever before. 

Living consciously isn’t just about slowing down; it’s also about becoming aware of your surroundings and understanding why people act the way they do. This takes some work on your part because often, we understand other people’s actions (thoughts, emotions, etc.) but not our own. We need to learn how to be aware of ourselves to know why we do the things we do.

So often, it happens that people live mindlessly; they get so caught up in their thoughts and worries that they don’t even know what’s going on around them! They forget how to pay attention and become completely unaware of the world around them. This is dangerous for obvious reasons (accidents, getting lost, etc.). That’s why it’s important to live mindfully; when you become conscious of your surroundings, you can better navigate through life instead of hurting yourself or someone else by accident.

In the modern world, there exists a common misconception of what life is. Life is not just about being busy from morning until night earning money or doing things you don’t necessarily want to do. At the same time, it’s not about wearing a mask and putting on a particular image of yourself, depending on where you are at any given moment in time.

Life is more than just waking up each day going through motions without ever stopping to question them or see if they can be improved upon in some way. Life should be lived consciously; aware of the choices you make and how they affect your inner state and your effect on everyone around you (note: this does not mean constantly judging every single thing anyone does).

This article will go over what conscious living is so that you can begin to see yourself and the world around you more clearly.

What is Conscious Eating?

The example of eating is used often in many forms of media because it’s a perfect way to emphasize just how vital being conscious of everything we consume is. Eating unconsciously means not caring about the quality or freshness of food and its nutritional content, among other things. In this form, eating becomes a habit that one goes through daily without ever thinking about it.

It’s also about never questioning where your food comes from on an emotional level, whether the animals were treated cruelly or if they were given all their GMO-ridden feed by default. It’s also about not caring whether the vegetables that you’re eating were soaked in toxic chemicals or if they weren’t grown to specifications. Even drinking tap water becomes a habit when it’s assumed that the government makes sure it’s safe for people to drink.

In all cases, being conscious means knowing exactly where your food comes from and how it was created, manufactured, and/or grown.

Conscious Clothing

The same applies to clothing. While some people might care a lot about the design of their clothes, many don’t put much thought into what materials were used to make them. The cotton industry has been widely criticized by organizations such as PETA for its role in causing skin problems for millions of workers worldwide while also harming the environment.

It’s also about not taking the clothes you wear for granted because, in many cases, they can create a negative effect on your mental state. For example, synthetic materials used to make specific clothing or uniforms can cause skin irritation and other problems.

Other problematic pieces of clothing include those made through sweatshops by children who were forced into labor and/or sex trafficking (a common problem among the fashion industry). Despite how well-informed we might believe ourselves to be, simply knowing about these things isn’t enough. To truly live consciously when it comes to clothes means doing your research and visiting supplier factories whenever possible to see what’s going on (instead of believing everything companies tell you).

Conscious Communication

In today’s world, social media has replaced face-to-face communication in many cases. For instance, in the workplace, people use instant messengers to communicate when projects are due instead of talking about them. And even if you do happen to work with someone in an office setting, often they can’t be trusted because everyone has their agendas and what’s best for them isn’t necessarily what’s best for the company as a whole.

All this results from consciousness being lost in favor of quick messages that fail to inspire motivation or hold people accountable. This is intentional on the part of social media companies who have been caught actively manipulating users into spending more time online (in the case of Facebook, this has led to more than one lawsuit).

It’s also about not letting what you read influence your thoughts and feelings without double-checking the source(s) of the information. Many online writers are motivated by making money rather than spreading knowledge with their readers in mind. As a result, there are countless websites out there that are set up specifically to manipulate you into feeling a certain way with sensationalized headlines (such as clickbait), little to no research done on their part, and useless information written with the intent of gaining ad revenue.

Other measures used to make sure people don’t think critically when reading online include using jargon or purposely avoiding talking about topics they know nothing about. All these tactics are used to keep people from thinking about what they’re reading, which leads them to believe everything they see.

Being conscious requires you to go beyond the headlines and read between the lines to get to the truth of what’s being presented. It also involves talking with real people instead of online commenters who spend more time acting like robots than actually interacting with others on a personal level.

Why should you live more consciously?

That’s an excellent question. It may not seem like conscious living is what it takes to be happy and prosperous, but the truth is that conscious living is the only way to be truly successful.

But what does conscious living look like?

Well, conscious people don’t just react impulsively to life conditions — they respond intelligently. They’re always aware of their surroundings and themselves, so they know which actions to take and how to behave in each situation.

They can easily spot their own mistakes, so they improve themselves every day through deliberate practice (practice focusing on improvement). And all this self-improvement makes conscious people more capable of achieving great things because mindful living makes people more aware of their potential and abilities.

So let’s look at the benefits of conscious living:

– conscious people are much happier than other people because conscious living is about supporting one’s happiness through conscious decisions and actions; we’re not talking about unconscious living where we go with the flow and hope for the best

– conscious people gain more profound, more meaningful relationships that aren’t based on impulsivity or similar unconscious traits (I’m not saying that you can’t have a good relationship with an impulsive person, but if there’s no consciousness in your relationship, it’ll be tough to sustain)

– conscious people earn more money than others because they value their time, so they know how to use it as efficiently as possible.

– conscious people are better off than others because they know themselves so well that they don’t get carried away by their weaknesses, which allows people to take conscious actions towards self-improvement.

– conscious living makes conscious people more successful in life — for example, conscious living is a must when it comes to using all life circumstances as learning opportunities to grow and improve yourself. And this is what conscious individuals do.

In conclusion, whether you’re happy or not depends on the decisions you make each day. The best way to be more comfortable is to live more consciously.
