Recent research indicates that regular social engagement helps to maintain your mind and your memory with age. Those that frequently socialize with others reportedly live longer and have decreased feelings of loneliness, stress, and anxiety.

Spend more time with the people you love. Surround yourself with a solid support system. Take part in social activities. Join a sports team or group to meet others with similar interests. Don't isolate yourself when you are feeling down. Talk to a friend or a family member. Become mentally strong and engage with the people around you!

Here's a quick meditation tip to reduce anxiety that really works. Take a deep slow breath visualizing soothing light blue light with specks of gold coming into your body with your breath. 

Slowly breathe out and visualize greys and dark colors that represent your negative energy leaving your body as you exhale. Watch the soothing energy go into each part of your body to relax it and you continue to breathe slowly and deeply. 

Now visualize white light around your body with golden fractals of light. This is your soul that always has your back and connects you to the universal field of energy that you can call on for emotional support at anytime. See the white light shining from your body and connecting to the entire universe. In your mind see great things coming to you and people smiling at you. 

Take one more inhale, smile and open your eyes. You have just changed your emotional state, activated the law of attraction in your favor and all in just a few moments of meditation. Meditation is your super power.

Did you know meditation also helps your health? Check this out. 

Meditation can reduce high blood pressure and the acidic stress hormones that cause painful inflammation. 

It also allows your immune system to stay strong because it won't have to fight off the free radicals caused by the toxic stress hormones of adrenaline and cortisol. That means you get less colds and flus because your body's defenses are stronger. Not to mention it reduces hypertension in the nervous system which can cause constipation, insomnia and food cravings due to emotions created in the fight or flight response state.

Are you (or is someone you know) healing from a breakup? Meditation can ease the pain we feel after concluding a relationship.

The term "conscious uncoupling" is a great reframing of an event we often think of as negative. When we sit and find gratitude for what we learned and send the other person genuine love, we expedite the healing process. This helps you overcome the feeling of lack that comes from inverted thinking, where our thoughts are turned inward at ourselves. Think about how you can lift others, not how others can lift you, and you're going to heal much quicker.

Do you find yourself dragging from one part of your day to the next not really enjoying any of it? Let's take a quick moment to shfit that so you can enjoy all of your activities, big or small!

Close your eyes. This will only take a moment, go ahead, close them. Think of the tasks you drag yourself through. Now watch yourself dancing and smiling as you do them, grooving like you just recieved the most awesome news ever! Now you see yourself laughing as you go from one thing to the next in your mind and playing fun music, wearing bright colors, giving hugs and engaging with people excitedly. This is your new theme, it's fun and it's exciting! You are now going to bring enthusiasm which the Greeks called, 'the power of the Gods,' to every moment of your day even if it's just getting in and out of your car. 

There is a popular statement that says, but first, be happy. Meaning that we often wait for happiness to find us but we have it backwards. We need to be happy for things we want to come into our lives! Be happy for now reason besides that it will make others happy!

Having a pet can provide helpful and healing health benefits. While it seems like a no-brainer that coming  home after a hard day to a loving creature who thinks the sun rises and sets based on your command is incredibly heart warming, there are a surprising amount of studies that show the scientific reason for  this. The unconditional love Whiskers and Fido provide us can help those of us with self-esteem issues, and logging tummy-rubs and cuddle time can lower our blood pressure and reduce stress. 

When we spend time with our pets, our body releases the calming hormone oxytocin, which can counteract stress hormone cortisol. It's no wonder we feel calmer when we see those furry faces! We knew they were good for our hearts, who knew they were so good for our health?

You Are Here: MIND

The Holistic Triangle represents the necessity of maintaining the balance of your Mind, Body, and Soul. Being the most structurally sound shape in the Universe, each arm of the triangle is connected to and supports the others. For the triangle to remain equilateral, the Mind, Body, and Soul all need to be in optimal condition. At Daily Life, we understand the intricacies of this fine balance. We work to provide you with tools, strategies, and resources that you can use to maintain your Mind-Body-Soul balance and achieve your ultimate potential and happiness - daily.

What is the Mind?

The mind is the filter through which we as humans perceive life and ascribe meaning to our experiences. Your mind is what allows you to learn, form opinions, and make decisions. Like the motherboard of a computer, your mind is the generator of your consciousness, and therefore, your reality.


What is the Difference Between the Mind & the Brain?

Think of the brain as hardware and the mind as software. The brain is the physical vehicle that your mind exists within. When the mind habitually thinks something, the brain develops neural pathways that create certain thought patterns and behavioural cycles. This means your mind can rewire your brain as you become conscious of your instinctual and habitual thoughts and behaviours. Becoming conscious of your thoughts and behaviours is the first step towards a healthier mind, body, and soul.

How to Practice Mindfulness - Daily

Mindfulness is the practice of constantly observing, reflecting on, and directing your thoughts. Being mindful means intentionally overriding your automatic thoughts with thoughts of positivity and love. Mindfulness allows you to take responsibility for your experience of life, to be aware of how you affect others, and to use your time and energy to become the best version of yourself.

Being mindful means slowing down to think before you speak. It means taking a moment to ask yourself why you are feeling something and how you should respond. It allows you to be less reactive, anxious, and defensive so that you can live more compassionately. Because our culture trains us to prioritize thinking and talking quickly and efficiently, most people struggle with mindfulness.

Mindfulness allows you to see how your thoughts become the energy that creates your life. When you become aware of your thoughts and typical thought patterns, only then do you hold power over them. Being mindful allows you to develop self-love and self-respect, to move beyond judgement to compassionate, understanding, and empathy. Mindfulness allows you to see windows where others see walls.

What is Meditation?

Meditation is the practice of focusing, clearing, and quieting your mind and body for a sustained period of time. Meditating can be done in many ways and looks different for everyone - it is a deeply personal practice that takes time to master.

Meditation is the ultimate tool of self-reflection, personal empowerment, and inner transformation. The goal of meditation is the realization that the self is not just what can be perceived with the eyes, but rather a soul that is energetically connected to the entire planet and the Universe as a whole.

How to Practice Meditation in Your Daily Life

Meditation is the practice of quieting the mind in which you work to clear out all thoughts to achieve peace. Meditation helps alleviate stress, trains us to be more mindful, and cultivates the forward momentum we need to live our best lives, daily.

Meditation can be done any place, any time. It is a practice of perceiving differently and of tuning into the soul’s wisdom. Meditation allows you to study your thought patterns and reorganize all of the information in your brain. Over time, your meditation practice will allow you to see the root cause of your feelings so we can find your inner harmony and balance.
