Staying Present in the Moment
With all our advanced and ultra fast technology, we are being encouraged, if not programmed to get ahead of ourselves. Some people I know with years of work before retirement are already thinking and planning for 5, 10 years ahead. And then…the moment is gone….the one with the sunrise or morning chill; or listening to the birds chirping and noticing our breath. It’s a daily discipline to be mindful and stay in the present. Sometimes, it is helpful to put your hand over your heart and just allow yourself to notice the heart pumping…especially useful when you are stressed and feel out of sorts.
