7 Conscious Living Blogs You Should Know

Conscious Living. Is it simply awareness? Is there a formula for conscious living? Do you have to dread your hair and sip herbal tea to do it? Only if you want to…
 
No matter how many yoga classes you take, there is always that moment of shifting your consciousness back into the real world once you’ve said your final namaste. Maybe it doesn’t happen right away, maybe it’s even hours later, but at some point it happens: leaving the yogic state of mind and reverting back to auto-pilot, handling the day as it comes. Is there a way to conquer the divide and carry that yoga bliss into our daily lives?
 
These 7 bloggers think so, and they break it down for us in their vastly different but highly engaging blogs all tied together by a common theme…consciously living in today’s world.

becoming-minimalist

Becoming Minimalist

Joshua Becker discovered that maybe less really is more when he traded his typical suburban family lifestyle for what some would call a radical mindset: minimalist living. Josh says as a result, he found a better way to live centered on more important pursuits, and he’s discovered the abundant life is actually found in owning less. The blog is centered around the concepts of minimalist living and real time tips on how to declutter your own life, both mentally and physically. Readers learn how reducing material wants and the clutter from your life can help you in becoming more consciously fulfilled.
