Are you living in the past, present or future? For most people, they are living so far outside of the present moment that they are actually missing out on their life. Rather than enjoying what’s right in front of them, they are existing in a state of angst.

If you are constantly regretting what you did in the past, the present is your opportunity to make the changes that prevent you from making the same mistakes over and over.

If you’re anxious about the future, worried about what may or may not happen, you miss this moment.

Rather than worry about the future, create it with your moment by moment thoughts and actions.

The greatest experience you can give yourself is to be fully present in the now.

Know All is Good

To get the most out of your day, be fully present in the moment. Avoid multi-tasking and distractions. You may think you will get more done by doing more than one thing at a time, but, you are not as productive due to not being fully engaged in either task.

Be present. Give your undivided attention to what you are doing. Try this for one day and see what happens.

I Am Present

To bring your awareness into your activities throughout the day, focus on telling yourself, “I am present in this moment.” You will immediately be brought back to the moment.

When you engage in a conversation, rather than having your phone nearby as a distraction, put your phone away, focus solely on the person you are having the conversation with and remind yourself, “I am present in this moment.”

It’s amazing what will happen when you do this. We’ve become so distracted in much of what we do that we are not fully living. We are not 100% engaged in the moment. Life is drifting by without fully living.

Try this for just one day. At the end of the day, check in with yourself and notice if you feel different based on the fact you were fully present throughout the day.
