Live In The Moment
Honestly, I should be the last person to talk about living in the moments of today. As most of my time I am either rushing to get to a presentation or rushing to eat my dinner to get business done. But as a parent I've learned how to have patience. Having our boys has taught me you have to enjoy the moment of NOW. Many of us spend way too much time either focused on tomorrow or worrying about tomorrow and not enjoy what is right in front of us. Remember, time doesn't stop for no one, you can never get your time back. Choosing to live in the past or the future not only robs you of enjoyment today, it robs you of truly living. Here are some tips to start living in the present. Note, this post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure for more info.
Tips to Start Living in the Moments of Today
Remove unneeded possessions - Removing items associated with past memories or past lives can free us up to stop living in the past and start living in the present.
Smile - Each day is full of endless possibilities! Start it with a smile. You never know what today can bring.
Fully appreciate the moments of today - Soak in as much of today as you possibly can. Don't dwell on yesterday moments.
Forgive the past hurts - The harm was their fault. But allowing it to impact your mood today is yours.
Love your job - If you just “Survived" the workweek and are constantly waiting for the next weekend “to get here,” you are wasting 71% of your life, there are two solutions:
1. find a new job that you actually enjoy
2. find something that you appreciate about your current career and focus on that rather than the negative stuff.
Dream about the future, but work hard today - Dream big. Set goals and plans for the future. Don’t allow dreaming about tomorrow to replace living for today.
Don’t dwell on past accomplishments - If you are still talking about what you did yesterday, you haven’t done much today.
Stop worrying - Realize that tomorrow is going to happen whether you worry about it or not. You can’t fully appreciate today if you worry too much about tomorrow.
Conquer addictions - Addictions in your life hold you hostage. They keep you from living a completely free life today.
