Everywhere I look, they say ‘live in the now’
but nowhere does it explain exactly ‘HOW’
There are simple questions to ask yourself that can help train you, to ‘live in the now’
Throughout the day try to remember this little exercise and try it as often as you remember. In time, it will become a natural, habitual way of thinking.
* Stop and observe your thoughts…..
* Ask yourself “Is this thought about something that happened in the past?” Be it a minute ago, or a year ago.
* Ask yourself “Is this thought about something in the future?” Be is about tomorrow or many years from now.
* If the answer to either of these questions is yes – then identify that it is not ‘in the now’ and practise letting those thoughts go.
Remember that you can’t change past and the future is yet to be discovered.
So take a look around you and using all of your physical senses – sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch, bring your attention back to this ‘moment’.
What can I see?
What can I hear?
What can I feel on my skin?
What can I taste?
What can I smell?
With practise you will get better at ‘living in the present moment’
Peace and harmony to all
