But you know what? You also decide whether or not your work will contribute towards a more conscious self.
Hannah Grey, career advisor from UK Careers Booster, explains: “When someone is looking for career directions, I don’t just ask what they would want to do. I asked them how that job would contribute to society’s well-being. We need to understand how each and every action reflects itself onto other people and the environment. If you’re a loan officer at a bank, for example, you’re not just giving loans to people and reminding them to return the debt. You’re practically affecting someone’s life with your job. So do your best to make that effect as good as possible. That’s what consciousness is all about.”
Many people are ready to start practicing yoga on a daily basis, ban all plastic from their lives, and even change their jobs to contribute towards a better society. But when it comes to eating clean, the change is a hard one to make.
Why does that happen? We’re so attached to food as part of our daily living that we can’t imagine a fundamental change in that aspect.
But this is a very possible change, and it’s one that we all have to make.
First, you have to become aware of the food you eat. What’s that in your plate? Maybe you’ve been eating instant oatmeal for breakfast for years and you assumed it was healthy. But check those ingredients! The flavor comes from sugars that you can easily avoid. Why not make your own oatmeal with fruits and honey?
Start swapping your usual meals with healthier options. Eat tons of fruit and veggies. Don’t even think of McDonalds! It will be hard. You’ll slip here and there. But it’s important to get back on the healthy road. Be conscious about what you eat. That food becomes you.
5. It’s Your Choice to Make
Your family, friends, pets, job… all these things make you happy. But is that enough for living a fulfilled life? Sooner or later, you’ll realize that it’s also important to “raise your vibration.” You being part of this world means something. When you become aware of that, you’ll want to become conscious about everything else. At that point, it’s important to make the right start. The four aspects we listed above are the first ones to address.
