Lately, I'm seeing quite a few people here talking about their bouts with depression and/or intolerance to negative news and the general malaise of the world.

In Chinese culture, every year has an animal mascot. It's the "year of the monkey," for example, or the year of the rooster. For NaturalNews, 2012 is the year of consciousness (or conscious awakening, in a sense).

This post comes under the category of learning from each other. I find the hardest part of the spiritual walk is remaining conscious moment by moment. I subscribe to the practice, "Embrace this place" as a way of accepting and staying in the Now, and I also use my breath and a mantra to bring me back to the peace of the present when my consciounsness drfits off, which is often and for long periods. It is a very uneven practice for me.
So here's the question: What do you do to stay conscious throughout the day, and are you able to remain conscious most of or all of the time?
