Easy Ways To Work Spirituality Into Your Modern Life
Among the hustle and bustle of everyday life, many of us struggle to fit in anything to do with spirituality. In fact, how many of us can honestly say that we have been in touch with our spiritual side ever before? A lot of people tie it very closely with religion, when in fact, you do not necessarily need to be religious in order to be spiritual. But why would you bother being spiritual at all? Well, modern life is very hectic, and especially for women, can be full of all sorts of pressures and sources of stress. Getting back in touch with your spiritual side can help to put our worries and stresses back into perspective – thus helping you to live a much richer, more fulfilling life. The plus side is that you don’t need to change your whole lifestyle either – the kinds of changes you make can be so minor that you will notice how easily they slip into your existing routine. If you are ready to get spiritual and to improve your quality of life, here’s how you can do so.
Be in the present
You might think that you are one of those people who ‘lives in the moment’. But do you find yourself constantly worrying about the future, or spending time dwelling on the past? If you answer yes to either of these things, then you probably don’t live in the present quite as much as you thought you did. Actually living in the present can be learnt through a technique called mindfulness, which has its roots in ancient Buddhist traditions. However, it has now expanded across the world and is practiced by people of all religions/no religion too.
Carry reminders with you
We all know how children carry comforters around with them to help soothe them when they are stressed out. Now, we are not recommended that you keep a blanket or a stuffed toy in your purse to get out the minute you find yourself in a stressful situation. But having a little reminder to stay grounded on your person every day can be great if it’s all getting a bit too much for you. For example, you might choose to carry a tigers eye mala, or maybe even a smooth gemstone you can hold or rub when you feel yourself getting anxious or worried. A simple act like this can easily bring you back into the present and offer you perspective on your current situation.
If you want to combine your new found spirituality with a way to keep fit, why not give yoga a try? Yoga is an ancient practice and comes in many forms, but the general basis for it is moving through a selection of poses while being aware of the breath in the body. This can be incredibly relaxing and you may also find that you start to tone up and gain muscle from the practice too. Yoga classes are run in studios all over the country, so you’ll easily find one near you.
