Repost from Leo Babauta’s amazing blog Zen Habits
For me, establishing is frequently about habits and routines — how to form them, how to keep them, how they can help you achieve your highest frequency. Mr. Babauta hit the nail on the head with this post, I feel, and I had to share.

Most of our lives are spent following unconscious, habitual patterns.
We wake and start immediately with our usual distractions, fall into regular eating habits, interact with people reactively out of old mental patterns, procrastinate and put off exercise out of old mental habits, are constantly thinking of something other than what we’re doing out of habit …
What if we could step away from those old habitual patterns?
What would it be like to wake up from our daydream, and make more conscious choices in each moment?
That’s what I’m exploring in my new course for my Sea Change Programcalled “Deeper Into Mindfulness” … and I invite you to join me this month.
In this course, we’re looking at:
- Developing mental concentration and awareness, so that we can become more aware of what our minds are doing and of the present moment.
- Developing mindfulness more in our daily lives, not just during meditation.
- Letting go of attachments by seeing the fluid, impermanent, egoless nature of the reality in front of us.
- Developing heart practices that work hand-in-hand with awareness to help relieve our stresses, be more compassionate in our relationships, and be happier in each moment.
Each week, I share two videos with my Sea Change members who are taking the course, and offer them daily practices they can do to delve deeper into mindfulness and develop these skills.
Each week, there’s a challenge to do these practices every day if possible, and a weekly accountability thread.
And I’m going to do a live webinar on the topic, and answer member questions during the webinar.
I invite you to join me by signing up for Sea Change today. And step out of your old habits, and start becoming more conscious in every beautiful moment.
