“You’ll sel­dom ex­pe­ri­ence re­gret for any­thing that you’ve done. It is what you haven’t done that will tor­ment you. The mes­sage, there­fore, is clear. DO IT! De­velop an ap­pre­ci­a­tion the present mo­ment. Seize every sec­ond of your life and sa­vor it. Value the present mo­ments. Us­ing them up in any self - de­feat­ing ways means you’ve lost them for­ever.” – Wayne Dyer How of­ten do you stop and take a look at the beauty of the world around you? It’s pretty of­ten that our minds get stuck dwelling on things that hap­pened in the past, or wor­ry­ing about the fu­ture. Ei­ther that or we get wrapped up in the daily tasks of our busy lives and don’t re­ally stop to ap­pre­ci­ate the joy that ex­ists in every day. So this ar­ti­cle is just a lit­tle re­minder to live in the present mo­ment, be mind­ful, and ap­pre­ci­ate the lit­tle things. LIVE IN THE MO­MENT AND EN­JOY IT. The real ques­tion is how?

SPEND­ING TIME

OUT­DOORS

Re­cently I have started be­ing out­side (as in ador­ing na­ture’s beauty), and trust me I have loved the vibes and I be­lieve that spend­ing time out­doors is one of the best tips for in­creas­ing mind­ful­ness. There’s so much to ob­serve and ap­pre­ci­ate out­side that you don’t re­ally no­tice un­til you start pay­ing at­ten­tion. Take a sec­ond to sit out­side in your back­yard or a park.

Take in the sound of the birds chirp­ing, the sound of the wind, and the warmth of the sun when it hits you,the sight of the flow­ers and plants around you, etc. Na­ture is beau­ti­ful, and we tend to take its beauty for granted. So take a mo­ment to go out­side, breath in some fresh air, and be mind­ful of the world’s nat­u­ral beauty.

WATCH WHAT YOU

EAT

In­stead of down­ing your cof­fee in the morn­ing as a habit be­cause you feel you “need” it to stay awake and get through the day’s work, en­joy your cof­fee slowly. Pay at­ten­tion to how it tastes, and how it smells (this is the best part about cof­fee any­way in my opin­ion!) Same goes for when you eat. Taste the fla­vors of your food in­stead of al­ways be­ing in a rush and don’t just gob­ble it down.

FOR­GIVE­NESS

For­give­ness in­volves let­ting go of the past, and all of the emo­tions that go with those past events. Whether it’s for­giv­ing some­one else, or for­giv­ing your­self, let­ting go of those toxic feel­ings is key to be­ing able to truly en­joy the present mo­ment. Be­cause how can you en­joy the present when you’re chained to the past?

MED­I­TA­TION - YOGA

If there’s any one thing that can bring you to fo­cus on, and soak in the present mo­ment, it’s med­i­ta­tion. Dur­ing med­i­ta­tion, you fo­cus on your breath, and your senses, and be­come more aware of your thoughts.

The whole point re­ally is to live in the mo­ment, and clear your mind. Clear your mind of any toxic thoughts that oc­cupy too much space in your head all day.

SMILE

Be­cause smil­ing brings noth­ing but good vibes, grat­i­tude, and hap­pi­ness

LOVE YOUR WORK

If you work full time, you’re spend­ing al­most 40 hours of pre­cious time a week work­ing. That’s a lot of time.

Who wants to do that? You’re ba­si­cally rob­bing your­self of the abil­ity to re­ally en­joy life at that point. The goal is to live for every day, and not to live for the week­end. When you get caught up liv­ing for the week­end, you’re only en­joy­ing two of the seven days a week. That’s not even half of the week. So do your­self a fa­vor and take ac­tion on your feel­ings about your job if you just can’t stand it any­more.

Ei­ther try to ad­dress the prob­lem you’re ex­pe­ri­enc­ing, find a new job, or cre­ate your own do­ing some­thing you love. What­ever will make you happy!

CHAL­LENGE YOUR

SENSES

What we are to­day comes from our thoughts of yes­ter­day, and our present thoughts build our life or to­mor­row. En­joy every­thing that comes your way; whether it be sounds, smells, sights, feel­ings, etc.

UN­DER­TAKE SOLE

PROJECT

We all learn one day that multi-task­ing is not our friend. Try go­ing through your to-do list one thing at a time and see how much more pro­duc­tive you feel. Trust me. Any­way, try­ing to all the things at once is what gets us caught up in “busy work” and caus­ing our head to spin (me with a mi­graine). If there’s any­thing that takes away

Re­mem­ber then - there is only one time that is im­por­tant – NOW! It is the most im­por­tant time be­cause it is the only time we have any power - Leo Tol­stoy

from en­joy­ing the mo­ment, it’s that spin­ning head feel­ing. So do your­self a fa­vor, slow down, and fo­cus on one thing at a time.
