Practising mindfulness and conscious living does not and cannot happen overnight. It is true that practising mindfulness and conscious living takes diligent efforts and attention. In this podcast episode with the speaker Ms. Kainaz, Founder of White Light Elements, the concept of mindfulness and conscious living is discussed and how it has impacted the life of Ms. Kainaz.
Mindfulness is giving attention to things around you, the activity you are currently working on and even the thoughts that are coming to your mind. Even when I am writing this article, my attention is directed towards the birds chirping in my garden, the sound of pressing the keys of the keyboard and also the clock ticking in the background. Practising mindfulness is putting forth the same level of attention and thought to tasks we do everyday, which thereby can improve the detailing and execution in that specific task.
This podcast episode similarly reveals concepts of mindfulness and conscious living. Ms. Kainaz herself shares her experience of developing these practising overtime. She moreover shares the importance of these practises in everyday life.
Simple ways of Practising Mindfulness and Conscious Living
Meditation is one of the most popular ways of practising mindfulness as it helps you connect with your thought and body at the same time. Meditating everyday for even 10 minutes can improve your attention and concentration for the day.
- Mindful Eating
This is another popular practice for conscious living. Whenever you are having your meal, ask yourself rudimentary questions such as: What am I eating? Who all created this meal for me? Where is the food coming from?. This way of mindful eating will not only help you appreciate your meal further but also make you feel grateful for the effort and labour that many people across the globe would have put behind.
- Drive Slower
In this fast paced life, driving is no more about rejoicing the journey or even looking at the view outside. But a mindful drive can make you feel more relaxed at you quietly and slowly notice your surrounding and enjoy the view
- Paying Gratitude
The importance of gratitude is documented in improving one’s mental health. Paying gratitude is another way of conscious living with the help of which the humans learn to redirect their attention to things that they appreciate and are thankful for.

Moving into a labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world with better wisdom. In medieval ages, labyrinths were used as an alternative way for people to experience the bliss of a pilgrimage without actually having to incur expenses and travel to another place. Likewise, labyrinths have been used by many cultures for relaxation and meditation.
