Some of the most silent, yet demoralizing forces in our lives are boredom and monotony. They may seem innocuous, but lifeless routines create breeding grounds of toxicity. What can we do to infuse vitality and passion into the pedestrian day? How can we spice up our humdrum lives?

Surviving in the material world in which we live places many demands on us. But we should not allow ourselves to get jaded, thinking that the status quo is all there is. Without effort it’s easy to succumb to the inertia of being tired and sad, and wake up every morning seeing only the daily grind ahead of us. We must make a concerted effort to focus each morning and seek fulfillment, rather than live by rote. “Living consciously” is living with the real you — the you who wakes up every morning with energy and excitement.
Try this out: Take a moment and shut off your senses — close your eyes, ears, taste, touch and smell. Free yourself from stimulation of what is going on outside of yourself? What would you be left with? Your true inner self. The self that is not affected by the grind. The self that is not defined by your confusion and frustration.
Know your identity, then figure out your life. Who you are should define your life, rather than letting your life define your identity. Figure out your priorities. Give yourself regular breaks to create spiritual space and peace. The trick to living consciously is to have an oasis in time to focus on your inner life, so that you can go back to your outer life with excitement and joy.
