Tip Seven - Be in the present moment
“I have so much time, “said no one ever”. Life can be busy, loud and some days overwhelming it’s important to stop, breath and allow yourself time to enjoy and just be present in the moment.
The first thing to recognise is that, try as we might, we really can only do one thing at a time, so we ought to do that thing wholeheartedly. Most of our time is spent in the past or the future, rather than the present moment. What we end up doing is passing through that moment on the way to somewhere else and, in doing so, we miss the moment. That's how life ends up passing us by - we do it to ourselves.
The act of being present is, in a sense, a meditation without meditating. The stillness here, though, comes from action - breathing, attending, witnessing, releasing and breathing again. This simple cycle can profoundly change the way that we experience our world.
