Daily Inspiration for the mind
Here's a quick meditation to help bring love into your life because we love you! Take a moment to close your eyes and breathe deeply.
Look the vibrating cells of your body and see that each of them are hearts. Now send those hearts out into the farthest reaches of the planet and see people feel relief from your love. Feel yourself in the company of people that are just as caring as you and feel the trust and strong connection between you. Feel the flutter of romance with someone who sees your soul and wants to care for it as they sense in the look of your eyes that you too want to accept them fully and help them see the joy available to them.
When we give love we open ourselves to recieve it. Give hugs, lend a hand, offer uplifting encouragement and share smiles and you will magnetize yourself to attract love of all kinds. Love yourself with all your heart and that doesn't mean your body only, it means your soul which is there to guide you and help you love every moment as a blessing. Love is simple, it just is.
You don't always have to act like you're okay. It's good to take a break when you feel off, upset, or just low energy. This will allow you to deal with the emotions that are affecting you so you can get back to your regular self again.
Surrender to whatever feelings come up without resistance. Ask yourself, 'where is this coming from?' This is an empowering form of meditation that allows you to see the root cause of your emotion. Once you've found the cause, really allow yourself to experience the feelings for a while.
Then, choose something positive in your life right now to focus on. This will give you your power back and is a great way to reset!
Here's some inspiration to get you stoked about life right now. Say to yourself, my life is not about me. I'm here to bring happiness and love to the world and that's what my intention is.
Even when people around me live trying to validate themselves, I love them and show pure intentions to help them find joy and kindness without being above anyone. I learn from others who always have something to teach me. I don't need their validation to feel good about myself, I only need to focus on loving everyone more openly and enthusiastically from the bottom of my heart.
What you put in your body is what you get out of it. If you are eating low-nutrient, high-calorie foods, your body is not getting what it needs. Our physical state transfers over into our mental state. You won't feel well, and your mood may plummet.
Eat a healthy and balanced diet. Research what nutrients you require on a daily basis and try your best to reach the recommended amounts. Try mood-boosting foods, such as avocado, mushrooms, and nuts. Eat better and feel better!
Do stress balls work? While these squishy little numbers aren't going to simply absorb all your worries in one go, there are quick benefits that could at least help you in the moment, or in small doses. The hormones released when we feel threatened course through our bodies in a hurry, triggering our fight or flight reaction.
When it turns out we aren't actually busting our butts to escape woolly mammoths, all that energy has nowhere to go and gets stored as tension. That's taking long way around to say that yes, stress balls allow us to release a bit of that stress, but they can't solve all of it!
Studies show that crying produces feelings of calm, relieves your emotions, and improves your mood. But how? Tears release stress hormones, detoxifying the body. Crying also causes the body to produce endorphins, making you feel better!
Bonus: Science indicates that crying, also, clears out our eyes and acts as a natural lubrication and cleaning mechanism.
So, go ahead. Cry it out. Don't bottle up your emotions. Don't be afraid to shed a tear or two. Let it all out. You'll improve your mental state and feel less stressed!
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 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.
