It is the capacity of an individual to take control and be attentive enough to deal with </p><p>problems, responsibilities, and issues of everyday life. </p><p>There are times though that we simply lack the effort to be mindful enough in coping up with the </p><p>constant pressure in life. Thus, a lot of us are left behind with no progress and development. </p><p>Integrating mindfulness into ones daily life is quite significant in order to be successful. With it, </p><p>you are able to take charge and manage the negative and positive aspects like challenges, fears, </p><p>stress, success, and many others. </p><p>Everyone should put in mind that being mindful is not only applied in the work place, job </p><p>interviews, examinations, training, and other crucial events in life. Integrating the attitude of </p><p>mindfulness in our daily lives is very important. Here are 11 ways on how to do it. </p><p>1. Loosen up people get stuck and stagnant both mentally and physically because they are </p><p>always consumed by the pressures of work and responsibility. The only way for anyone to be </p><p>able to maintain mindfulness in responsibilities is to loosen up. Do not think of the negative </p><p>consequences, instead, hope for whats the best thing out of the worst situation. </p><p>2. Always look for change life is an endless search for satisfaction. Because of this, we all </p><p>search for constant change each and every time we are confronted with issues and problems. </p><p>Being able to solve these issues entails the ability to be mindful in all the things around us. If </p><p>we try to think of solving a problem but later think of it as nothing new and significant, theres </p><p>a good chance we cannot solve them. But with a mindfulness perspective and a hope for </p><p>change, one can really be effective and successful since dealing with problems is linked to </p><p>thinking of it as something that will provide change in your life. </p><p>3. Be stress free stress is always a part of everyday. But having yourself full of it will </p><p>certainly not help. Integrating mindfulness in relation to stress means you have the power be </p><p>aware and deal with stress effectively. You will not allow it to defeat your goals and </p><p>objectives for that particular day. </p><p>4. Integrate fun and play facing several responsibilities in everyday life sometimes molds us </p><p>into very strict, stringent, and dull individuals. All we think every time we wake up each </p><p>morning is dealing with all the negative things and surviving them before the day ends. With </p><p>this kind of attitude, were actually putting ourselves into stagnant mode. It sucks out the </p><p>energy in us. The best way to combat this is incorporate playfulness to our responsibilities. By </p></li><li><p>Page | 3 </p><p>extracting fun with all the things we do, even if we dont like doing them that much, we are </p><p>beginning to emphasize mindfulness. </p><p>5. Be flexible attentiveness is coupled with the ability to solve problems in a lot of ways. If </p><p>you are mindful in all the things around you, are can be knowledgeable enough to resolve </p><p>problems that seem to be unsolvable. By being flexible, you are actually bringing the act of </p><p>mindfulness because you are very much aware of the various ways of solving an issue. You </p><p>do not say, Im sorry, I cant do that because I dont know to how to. Instead, you stand </p><p>up to the challenge and find all possible means of finding solutions to problems. </p><p>6. Love and compassion love in this instance means the one you give to yourself and to others </p><p>as well. Mindfulness is defined as the ability to be aware and heedful of the environment </p><p>around us. By being mindful, we tend to effectively cope up with life and deal with it </p><p>successfully. And one of the best ways to be mindful of ones responsibilities is to think of </p><p>them as something that needs to be done for the sake of our love to ourselves and others. We </p><p>work every day to provide a better future for our children. We work and work effectively in </p><p>order to keep the job and secure a good living for our family. Thats love and compassion. </p><p>7. Transparency and openness being transparent means being honest. Being open on the other </p><p>hand means being curious. These are two things that come hand in hand when we want to be </p><p>mindful of the things that happen in everyday life. By integrating these two things, we do not </p><p>think of physical limitations. We cant stop working and trying simply because our bodies are </p><p>tired. We approach a problem by being curious and willing enough to find a solution to it </p><p>before the day ends. People who always regard their physical limitations as a hindrance to the </p><p>success of the day are the once who are most likely to fail as well. </p><p>8. Be unique being unique and different is an epitome of mindfulness. With these two qualities </p><p>in hand, you have the ability to look at a duty or responsibility with a sense of creativity. This </p><p>means that you can devise several ways of dealing with them. As a result, you confront </p><p>responsibilities with confidence that by the end of the day, you end up doing them in style and </p><p>success. </p><p>9. Dont rush things one of the reasons why we tend to fail when it comes to making our day a </p><p>success is because we often judge and decide on things very fast. And the worst part is we tend </p><p>to view these things with a pessimistic attitude. For instance, when you are confronted with a </p><p>problem or work you havent come across before, you will most likely say I cant do this, or </p><p>If I do this, it really wont change anything. These things are products of a hurried and </p><p>very negative decision making. In order to fight it, you have to think of things slowly but </p><p>surely. Absorb everything first and the rest of the solution will follow later. </p><p>10. Share your emotions and opinions being mindful corresponds to openness and willingness </p><p>when it comes brainstorming and sharing of thoughts. Success is achieved if youre on the </p><p>winning team. This means that you need to share what you think and feel to others and let </p><p>them do the same. You cannot achieve a mindfulness way of thinking if youre alone. </p></li><li><p>Page | 4 </p><p>11. Be practical finally, one of the most important things one has to put in mind is that </p><p>mindfulness and awareness is primarily characterized by practicality and living in truth. </p><p>People who keep on failing each day are pretty much occupied of how they want to see the </p><p>world around them. In a way, theyre actually creating an imaginary world where everything </p><p>is simple, easy, and free of problems and responsibilities. However, that really isnt the case. </p><p>What needs to be done therefore in order to be mindful and aware of ones responsibilities is to </p><p>keep it practical accept the environment and condition around you and accept what it is. </p></li></ul>
