Pausing to Take Aligned Action for a Badass Year

Get Out of Auto Pilot Mode

We don’t realize how much we operate our lives from autopilot mode, living the same day over and over again. It’s important to take the pause to get back out of autopilot mode and recognize what you actually are doing in life. Ask yourself, is this still working? Is there a better way?

Utilize the Seven or Above Rule

You can automatically apply the seven or above rule by asking yourself this question: does this activity that I’m doing right now drain me or bring me joy? If it drains, you have to ask yourself, do I have to do it? If you don’t, then it’s time for you to change it.

Incorporate Breathwork into Your Routine

Breathwork is a breathing technique that you’re born with, but no one taught you how to use it consciously. Breathing is an unconscious byproduct of our body, but it’s really what controls everything. By taking control of your breathing, you can make the conscious decision to feel relaxed or anxious. Breathwork brings awareness to your body, and awareness is enlightenment.

Recognize That You Can Change Whenever You Want To

Overnight or at any point in your life, no matter where you’re at, you can change. What it takes is for you to pause what you’re regularly doing and start to reconsider everything that’s been going on and say, will I continue to allow this to be in my life? And if not, how do I change? Become really specific on that new life, habit, or way of being.

INSIDE THE ELEVATED LIFE CLUB:

Of all the things we can control in life, our breath is one of the most important (and most overlooked).

On average, you can live a few weeks without food, a few days without water, but only a few minutes without breathing.

What science is now finding and what yogis knew for thousands of years is breath doesn’t just keep us alive, it controls our stress levels, our blood pressure, anxiety, mood, memory, athletic performance, sleep, and immune system.

There’s no wonder we’re seeing a massive pull to understand and use this powerful tool.

People are finding breath to be the simplest way to supercharge their health, experience spiritual awakening, and perform at their best.
