5 Tips to Live a More Mindful, Meaningful Life

In a world that often glorifies the busy lifestyle and encourages the “hustle and grind” culture of overwork, it can be hard to feel like you’re doing anything meaningful. Being happy is all good and well, but the real purpose of life is to do something meaningful that makes a difference, even if only to one small section of the world. 

There are a lot of different ways that you can make your life more meaningful, but it all starts with another big “m” buzzword: mindfulness. 

Tip #1 – Master Mindfulness and Mindset 

If you are going to change your life, you first must change your mind. Finding your purpose or creating meaning in your life requires a lot of self-reflection and personal development. Embrace a growth mindset that is optimistic and motivated. Learn how to practice mindfulness daily, including in everyday moments. 

Tip #2 – Try New Things 

You can’t possibly explore all the potential opportunities to find meaning and purpose if you don’t try something new. Or a lot of somethings, in this case. Seek out new experiences and adventures. Push yourself out of your comfort zone. Find things that bring you joy and make you feel like you’re living purposefully, not just letting the days go by. 

Tip #3 – Find Your “Why” 

Your core values are essential to your behaviors and actions in this life. You need to reflect on your values and what matters to you. Why do you do what you do? What brings you passion? What brings you joy? Spend more time on these things and you will see that your life starts to fill with even more joy and purpose. 

Tip #4 – Be Present 

This is a big part of being mindful. Being present requires putting aside all your mental and physical obstacles and living in the moment. It means embracing the everyday and practicing gratitude while moving forward with deliberate intention.

Tip #5 – Get Out of Your Own Way 

Too often, people feel like they want to find purpose or meaning in life, but they’re stuck in the grind or can’t escape their “day job.” You don’t have to completely upend your life to create meaning. You can do it in little ways, as you have the time and space—and most importantly, you can do it

It takes a little practice, but with commitment and intent, you can bring more meaning to your life in no time. Contact Mel Doerr to learn more!
