Living in the present moment

We live in a society that is always looking to the future; what's the next move, the next step, the next goal? It's easy to get caught up in this way of thinking and lose sight of the present moment. Eckhart Tolle so beautifully sums up the power of living in the present moment in his quote: "Life is now. There was never a time when your life was not now, nor will there ever be." 

  1. The importance of being present

When we're fully present, we're able to shift our focus, create new opportunities, and just be. It's a state of being that is incredibly powerful and can help us to lead more fulfilling lives. Oftentimes, we can get caught up in thinking about what's next instead of enjoying the moment we're in. That's why it's so important to practice being present whenever possible.

  1. Be where your feet are 

Whenever I start fixating on the future or feeling stuck in the past, I like to remind myself to "be where my feet are." To embrace where I am and what I have now. This simple phrase has helped me so much in recent years because it allows me to take a step back, take a deep breath, and appreciate all that I have been blessed with. The feeling that always follows after taking an intentional pause to tune into the present moment is gratitude, and that is always worth it.

  1. Practicing presence in your everyday life

It can be helpful to set reminders for yourself throughout the day to practice being present. For example, you could set an alarm on your phone to go off a few times a day with the message "be present." Or you could put sticky notes around your house or office with reminders like "enjoy this moment" or "be where your feet are." These little reminders can help you to pause and appreciate the current moment more often.

The next time you find yourself caught up in thinking about the future, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and remember the power of living in the present moment. When you take the time to tune in and enjoy each moment for the gift that it is, you open yourself up to the power of now. It's important to remember this power whenever you find yourself getting too caught up in the world of what's next.
