You’ll face a variety of circumstances in your life. But how you face those circumstances can either help you find your best life or it can weigh you down. The circumstances you find yourself in can sometimes call for you to make fast decisions.
When you practice mindfulness, you’ll learn how to cut through the inner dialogue in your brain to find the ability to trust your intuition. When you trust your intuition, you’ll discover that you’re making better decisions about all of the areas of your life.
You’ll want to begin by focusing on where you are in the present. Take some deep breaths and concentrate on the breathing. Unfortunately, circumstances are often the deciding factor that we use to make our decisions.
We look at the circumstances and think that we can see the whole picture, but we don’t. Your circumstances never tell you the whole story. So what happens is you can make choices based on what’s not even a reality.
These circumstances can cause you to react using your emotions. You’ll end up second guessing yourself when you don’t practice mindfulness. When you do practice mindfulness, you’ll be fully present, which means that you won’t be looking at the circumstances to be the deciding factor in your choices.
What mindfulness does to help you is it teaches you to not get caught up in whatever is going on around you. It shows you how to take a step back and stop, refocusing your thoughts on where they should be.
You’ll learn how to respond using your intuition. Your intuition is something that you simply know instinctively. Some people refer to their intuition as knowing in their gut that a choice was either right or wrong.
When you second guess your intuition, you’ll get knots in your stomach because you’re not one hundred percent convinced that you’re doing what’s right for your life. Mindfulness allows you to tune in to your intuition.
Your intuition allows you to stop spending too much time trying to reason with or think about your decisions. When you spend a lot of time thinking over the choices that you make, it can cause you to become overwhelmed with choices and ideas.
This can make you begin to experience self-doubt in your abilities to make decisions. Trusting your intuition can prevent you from overthinking your decisions. When you overthink something, you can go over and over it in your mind.
It can cause you to not make any decisions because you’re so afraid you’re going to mess up. It can also cause you to become frustrated and make a choice just to get it over with.
Practicing mindfulness can help you with any circumstance. You’ll feel a sense of peace and learn to recognize and trust yourself when you practice mindfulness that allows your intuition to govern your actions.
