How to enjoy the power of now and be more present.
We often get stuck in our own head thinking and worrying about things that are out of our control. Which reminds of the saying…
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present”
And this is something I’m often sharing with my clients, the past has gone, you cannot change it, you can change the way you allow yourself to respond to it, you can learn from it, but you cannot change it,
Equally the future is a mystery, as it hasn’t happened yet, so there not much point worrying about it. Yes we can plan and prepare for it, but we have to do that in the here and the now, the present!
The key is to allow yourself and find as many opportunities, to naturally get out of your own head, come to your senses and enjoy the present, the power of now, as it’s often referred to.
The quote, “stop and smell the flowers”, really sums it up well. Stop what you are doing, stop what you are thinking and utilise one of your senses, while you are focused on smelling the flowers you’re not thinking of anything else, while your walking barefoot on the grass, or on the sand and become mindful of the texture beneath your feet, while you’re looking at a stunning landscape.
While you become aware of your breathing and take some nice slow deep breaths in and out, that is where your minds attention is & you become engaged in the present moment.
Which simply allows you to think differently while enjoying the gift of the present, the here and the now.
So be mindful and think of as many different ways as you can to get out of your own head and come to your senses, and enjoy more of your life in the present!
