Staying in the Here and Now

You know how there are some moments where you’re sitting at a table full of people, everyone’s enjoying themselves, you’re trying to do the small talk thing, but you can’t let go of something that happened an hour or day ago or maybe you’re over thinking things and just thinking ahead about something, or what about those days where you just can’t get over that hump and do things you need to do because of ruminating thoughts. These moments right here are a perfect example of not being able to be present, you aren’t able to enjoy the moments or company in front of you when you’re stuck in your head. Staying present at times can be difficult especially when an unexpected situation impacts you tremendously but let me see if I can help out with that. Like I’ve mentioned in a prior post, you can control how you allow situations out of your control to affect you. Staying present is ideal but I can understand how some situations may cause you  to think otherwise. Just like anything, if you make it a focus to get to a point of  staying in the here and now, you start to apply techniques to get there, there may be days  where you stray off track  but when you have some essential techniques in your back pocket to utilize consistently overtime it becomes a habit, so in staying present, see if any of these are helpful.

Learn to enjoy the moments of each day, good or  bad, be in that moment, take things for what they are, don’t try to escape reality by getting involved in all the thoughts that don’t matter going on in your head.

“Living in the moment means letting go of the past and not waiting for the future it means living your life consciously, aware that each moment you breathe is a gift.” –Oprah Winfrey
