Getting lost in thoughts, doing the same again and again, without awareness happens often: recurrent thought patterns, recurrent behavior patterns make us go on autopilot. It is essential to be aware to be able to play in time, on time and all the time respecting your time & the time of others. Use your time, talent & treasure to contribute to the world. Make yourself productive, choosing how to spend time. You are the Manager of your Life and in your Life & relationships, you need to be aware of the time and spend it with awareness to be able to get the most out of your productivity and creation. Take a time to rest, relax and do Shiva Dhyan Yoga Meditation, which will give your brain a boost. Take breaks once in a while to attain inner peace.

Beyond mental, emotional, physical level, being self-aware also means being aware of your Self, of your inner Self in the highest spiritual dimension of your being. This self-awareness unfolds with the practice of Shiva Dhyan Yoga. The more you practice, the more you become aware of this inner Self, who you really are.
