The 7 Habits of Highly Mindful People

Leith Brown

“The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.” – Thich Nhat Hahn

How can we live a meaningful life, have you ever thought about that question? A meaningful life is said to be based on three principal human qualities: Wisdom, happiness and love. 
A mindful lifestyle is an essential path towards a meaningful life. One that allows space for acknowledgement, understanding and growth and grants us the wisdom, happiness and love we all need.

I know living a ‘mindful life’ can be a challenge as we may not be accustomed to living in the present moment. Therefore I thought I’d share seven, powerful, mindfulness habits. When practiced daily, these habits will help us appreciate every moment of our lives. Its an experiential learning that only requires a little practice and fits right into each day’s routine. Research has shown that just 10 – 20 minutes of mindfulness meditation each day, has a significant impact on our brains and the way we conduct our lives. 

Mindfulness Habits
Having mindful habits or rituals mean being aware and attentive, on a daily basis, as you move through your day. This is a way of making your life healthier and more fulfilling, rather than mindlessly acting in autopilot mode. Your senses will become alive to what nourishes you and they do so through your attention to what they are engaged with. Try some of these habits in this guide, and just see how you feel. It is not mandatory that you have to follow all of them. Remember, it’s not a competition; it’s just what you notice and not about what you’re meant to notice or what anyone else notices.
