There’s no doubt there’s a growing interest in being more mindful nowadays.
Everybody wants to know how to eliminate distractions and stay also in the present moment so they can live their best lives.
And with the sudden turn of events these days with everyone trying to do their part at home right now, there’s no better time to get serious about how this time will benefit you, your family, and your life’s path.
That is why it is so important to be aware and more mindful of everything that you do, especially when it comes to your home life.
It’s the starting point to expand your consciousness so that you can begin to look at the various aspects of your life and make the necessary adjustments that will continue to serve your highest self.
To do just that, here are 6 simple ways to expand your perception at home.
They will not only allow you to start living a more mindful and fulfilled life but hopefully carry on with you in everything that you do.
If you would like to start being more mindful at home, then it’s the right time to start practicing mindful meditation.
Mindfulness meditation will help you remove your emotions and thoughts that relate to the past or future and harness you in the present moment.
Because at the end of the day the present moment is really all you really have.
2. Put your phone away while socializing with family at home.
We all know that it’s hard to be mindful, especially since we almost always have our phones in our hands.
So to be more mindful with your attention consider putting your phone out of reach when socializing with your family members at home.
Whoever you are with deserves your total attention, and when your phone lies in front of you or on your lap, you simply cannot be properly engaged to connect with them fully if you happen to get a message or phone call.
This will allow you to be completely engaged with everyone you’re with.
3. Practice mindfulness right after you wake up.
Practicing mindfulness in the morning will be your best bet to creating it as a habit.
By practicing mindfulness first thing in the morning, it will help set the tone of the prefrontal lobe for the rest of the day, thus raising the possibility of having more aware moments throughout the day.
To help you out, try setting a timer, start with one minute, then slowly increase the amount of time from there.
When you exercise mindfulness in your heart, note how your body feels, how you personally feel, and concentrate, again, on being in the present moment.

4. Consume Mindfully.
Whether you’re browsing online shopping at home or you can end up falling into those big buying sweeps like Amazon Prime Day, you could regret your decisions if you’re not being mindful of what you are doing.
You’re going to be shocked when you ask yourself these informed questions. And becoming aware might just encourage you to be more attentive before searching for your wallet.
There is even a thing called short-sighted behavior which lesocialpost.com does a great job of entailing on how to solve it.
5. Don’t multitask & focus on one thing at a time.
Multitasking is not being mindful, in fact, it’s the opposite because only two percent of us are actually able to juggle multiple tasks at once.
If you try to get multiple things done at once, you may also be left feeling less productive, less creative, and feeling even more frustrated.
So to really focus on what you’re working on, try eliminating potential interruptions, keep your space really clean, and encourage yourself to address only one thing at a time.
6. Avoid the Comparison trap.
Skimming through social media frequently allows our minds to wander into negative spaces.
This happens because you will see the influencers you follow and your peers living their wonderful lives and size up your own experiences to what they’ve already achieved.
When we do this, this constant comparison overwhelms our minds and makes us feel less than.
So to avoid the comparison trap and to help you stay more mindful in the present moment, try to limit the time you follow others on social media or unfollow anyone that you are really comparing your life to.
This way you can be more aware of where you want to go, what goals you are attempting to accomplish, and not have any distractions that are comparing your results in your very own home.
