The issue: Generosity and mindfulness are two important qualities that can have a big impact on our lives. Both involve being aware of the needs of others and ourselves and being open to giving and receiving.
Why it matters: Generosity is the ray of sunshine that brings light into our lives. We feel abundant inside, so we share our resources, time, support and love with other people.We don’t expect anything in return, thus the joy is unconditional. Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the moment and being aware of our thoughts, feelings, and actions without any judgment.
Go Deeper: Being generous and mindful means being aware of our needs and the needs of others and taking right action. We are conscious of how our words and actions affect others and we take responsibility for our behavior and the situation.
The bonus: We experience true love, real kindness, and genuine support.
1. Practice gratitude: Take time each day to be thankful for what we have and the people in our lives.
2. Give back: Volunteer our time or donate to a cause that is meaningful to us.
3. Listen: Take the time to really listen to others and understand their perspectives. It helps to feel the energy inside our body when we talk to other people. This clears our mind so we feel our essence and that of others.
4. Be kind: Show kindness to those around us, even if it’s just a smile or a kind word.
