Due to our increasing reliance on technology, anxiety disorder rates are skyrocketing, general quality of life has been collectively reduced, and meaningful personal interaction has become increasingly less a part of daily life.

For those seeking such answers, here are 4 essential insider tips & tricks shared by the creators of My Karuna, the whole plant beverage line that has become a prominent industry leader in holistic wellness and mindfulness.

  • Be mindful of your habits. Minor decisions we make in our daily lives, when compounded over time become the driving forces of our destiny. Observe your behavior and your choices every single day, and whenever you find something that doesn´t align with your greater purpose in life, or is holding you back, eliminate it. Like the author Charles Duhigg explained: “This is the real power of habit: the insight that your habits are what you choose them to be.” Even when it comes to technology, limit your time on digital devices to what is directly productive and replace excess time with meaningful tasks or enjoyable leisures in the real world.
  • Build on your existing success. What good is achieving a certain milestone if your mind is driving you immediately towards the next goal on your list? Take some time to savor minor triumphs and use them willingly, as building blocks for bigger breakthroughs. Motivate yourself by remembering the choices and behavioral patterns that led you to success in the past and acknowledging that you can leverage them at will in the future.
  • Nourish your body and your mind every day. Stress, anxiety, and fatigue are some of the biggest roadblocks you might face on the path to realization. You can easily overcome these obstacles by nourishing your body with healthy and delicious foods and beverages that provide essential nutrients, My Karuna believes food is better medicine and we agree. Try their superfood whole plant smoothies, juices & tonics to provide your body with an instant upgrade. Feed your mind as well, guard it from any thoughts that discourage you or make you feel down. Pick up books that will keep you growing and learning, listen to inspiring audiotapes or podcasts. The choice is yours.
  • Always keep good company. You can´t feel good if people around you are constantly complaining, being negative and holding you back. So be alert. When you find yourself interacting with people, always ask yourself if they are uplifting you or dragging you down. Remember you don´t have to be available for everyone at any given time, access is power and when you allow people unlimited access to your time and attention, you´re giving them way too much influence over your mindset and mood. It´s time to put your phone down and take the power back
