Every day, I evaluate my life and wake my consciousness up and bring to the attention whatever is happening to me in my unconscious self.
I often try to get myself out of the paradoxes we usually live in, to have a look at life and see where it is heading.
In this way, I choose which path to go, and with that, I choose its circumstances as well.
This allows me to make my own choices and accept the challenges that await and be responsible for my own actions instead of blaming my fate.
Have you ever felt like your life is drifting away and you are living in a state where your action contradicts what you think you want to do?
Or maybe you don’t even realize when and how certain events take place in your life? This is what we call living unconsciously.
However, you are here to listen about living your life consciously. So What does this even mean?
This means that you have control over your life, to be able to think and make your decision.
Your own rather than allowing everything to happen itself.
You take responsibility for how you want to take your life ahead rather than follow life and wherever it takes you.
If you are dealing with the same problems that you don’t realize how you get here.
Life feels out of control, then stop right there and have a moment of realization.
It is high time that you begin and tries to live your life consciously.
Here are a few questions that you need to ask yourself and see what answers you get:
- Do you enjoy the work you do or feels like you should be doing something else?
- Do you think that the things you do are not meant for you and you are doing it forcefully?
- Are you doing a lot of hard work for something you don’t enjoy and feels like you want to do what you like?
- Do you think that you are spending money without even realizing where it goes?
- Do you crave to spend more time with your loved ones?
- Do you spend your whole day without thinking about what you want to do in life and planning to get there?
- Do you find yourself in a state of procrastination or unwillingness to do something where you delay every task?
If your mind answers “NO” to the above question then you actually don’t need this guide.
If you still want to learn more then you can continue no one is stopping you.
However, the people who are still confused are advised to continue reading.
I am hopeful that as you end this guide, you will have a clear mind.
So How To Live Life Consciously?
Before I get into the details of this, you need to realize one thing and that is this will take some time.
You will not start living consciously as you end the article. This is a process that needs a bit of effort and determination for your side.
Living your life consciously is in itself an art. This is not a one-time thing, but a habit that you need to incorporate into your daily life routine.
Living life consciously sounds simple and easy, as you just need to be conscious while thinking and take action.
But, when you look in your surroundings, you will find most people lack this in their life.
It is easy to just follow the life pattern and go with where life takes you, but, there are very few people.
Who go opposite of the wind and try to take control of their lives.
As there is a popular saying by Marcus Aurelius,
“The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of insane.”
So you need to ask yourself, are you willing to put in the efforts, energy, and constant fighting spirit to change your life?
If yes, then here are a few tips for you that are going to help you in living your life consciously as they helped me.

7- Always Be Willing to Learn New Things And Be Open-Minded:
If you want to achieve a higher level of consciousness, you need to be open-minded about things.
You will either remain in the same state of consciousness or go down to a lower state.
Because you have refused to embrace the richness that our world has to offer.
Which includes different cultures, traditions, native species, and religions.
It doesn’t just mean to be open-minded for beliefs only.
You can be open-minded to try something different, like physical exercise, spiritual practice, or new foods.
Moreover, you need to eliminate the sense of prejudice from your life. That’s the most important factor.
8- Crave To Be Intelligent:
Intelligence can be achieved from a number of things.
No one has reached the level of intelligence where they are just perfect in every aspect of life.
Many people are intelligent physically, others have higher intellect, and some have spiritual intelligence.
Each type of intelligence increases and improvements will enable you to broaden your consciousness and become a more mindful human being.
9- Learn to Respect Yourself Before Other Respect You:
It is important that you learn to respect yourself before others respect you. Because it always starts with you.

Emotional outrage, hostility, and negative emotional behaviors are the product of physical fighting.
Peace and fight are the rivals of each other.
The fight can be called peace’s opposite.
Physical fights and other types of violence can potentially distract us from being more conscious people.
Anything that helps you in stopping physical abuse and violence can eventually help you and others to be more conscious.
13- Include Acceptance And Awareness In Your Life:
Regardless of your current emotions, if you embrace them, you’ll be deeply helpful.
It’s much harder to live when you resist your emotions and trap them in yourself.
Attempting to eliminate our feelings and emotions make us less consciously aware.
If you recognize what you feel and understand consciously why you feel any emotion, the degree of consciousness will increase.
15- Always Be Willing to Learn Something From Others:
There is no person who has all the wisdom of the Earth. No one holds in his brain all the wisdom of the world.
That is why learning from others’ wisdom and willing to implement it in your life is worth living.
Each person has a unique perspective and understanding of things.
There are a number of ways that can help you to learn from others’ wisdom. For Example:
meeting a consciously experienced person face to face and finding life-related guidance, reading positivity.
Self-improvement articles from different sources, or engaging in various personal development seminars.

All the relationships that we have with our loved ones are more important than anything.
This may include relationships with your friends, wife, girlfriend, parents, husband, or children.
These people top the list of the most important things in your life.
So ask yourself, if you are spending enough time with them?
Do you appreciate your relationship with them? Is there anything you should be apologizing about?
Does your relationship need some improvements? Is there a lack of communication?
These are a few questions that you need to ask yourself and if you get a negative answer to any of the above then try to improve it.
Moreover, relationships with people you work with are also something you should pay attention to.
17- Always Keep Your Ego Check Meter On:
It will be easy for you to raise your consciousness if you are aware of your ego.
In this state, both your awareness and consciousness works directly proportional to one another.
This means that if one increases then the other increases as well and if one decreases the other decreases as well.
Therefore, it is important that you are aware of your ego and do not let it go out of control.
Because it will affect your ego and your working condition too.
You can consciously progress in a much healthier direction by taking complete power.
The burden of keeping the ego in the balance in the face of adversity.

In the world of today where people have reached the speed of luminosity, it is always important to have time with yourself.
In this time, you get to reflect on life and have thought about it.
If you are a person who doesn’t take enough “ME” time every day, consider starting a personal routine.
For example, taking time in your inner reflection (meditation), knowing how much you love yourself, walking to listen to your own ideas, gratitude for everything in your lives, or getting involved with a hobby that inspires you, are some of the ways you can spend your time with yourself and contribute positively to your life.
24- Be A Better Listener Than A Speaker:
Well, in the generation we live in, it always feels like a person wants to be the center of attention, discussions are simply seen as egoistic contests.
Although the attention may be wonderful and satisfying, it can deliberately become harmful to your consciousness if driven by your ego.
You can be more aware of others by practicing listening.
Then talking and be more consciously aware while you still contribute to the discussion politely with logic.
26- Be A Comedian:
When you are a funny person who makes others laugh, it helps to relieve tension and let you and others have a positive look at life.
