We live in a world of constant distraction. Phones, computers, televisions, radios—they all serve to distract our minds from being fully present in the moment. It can be challenging to pay attention to conversations or focus on the task at hand. Learning to live in the now with clarity and focus can help you accomplish more while using less energy and reducing frustration.
Being mindful and meditating have become buzzwords of late. Sometimes I wonder if it’s just a trend that will fade in time or if people will really see the importance of being present in the moment. Some of the benefits of learning to live in the now are:
Like I said earlier, it can be extremely challenging to stay present in the moment with all the distractions in our lives right now. Personally, I’m an avoider. If something is unpleasant, I avoid it. I don’t want to walk through it. But this isn’t always the best strategy. Being in the now has so many advantages we must make an effort. What can we do to get started?
The most important thing to remember is we aren’t perfect. But making an effort to be intentional and live in the now is great for building good habits and good relationships. Pay attention to what’s going on around you in the present moment. Notice that you’re a living, breathing organism on a living breathing organism. Focus on bringing air into your body and releasing air from your body.
If you can do that, you can learn to make living in the now a habit that lasts a lifetime.
