How Do you Just Live in the Moment
Most people spend the majority of their lives either living in the past, or living in the future. Very few people are aware of their present moment, let alone live in it. A lot of people live in the future. Why? Most people have a future that doesn’t mirror their present so they’d rather be in the future. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing because Law of Attraction states, “…that which you give your attention to will manifest in your life.” However, staying in the future means your present is passing you by. The following are some ways to help you live in the now and live a happy life without stress.
1. Don’t think about it.
Your goal is to stop thinking all the time. Give your mind chance to rest from constantly thinking. Go write down things that pop in your mind, this could be exams that are coming up or that visit to grandpa in a few weeks. Then cross off the ones that you are happy about. The first kiss with your lover can be a great memory that you might want to remind yourself of sometimes. Now you’ve a list of bad things you think about all the time. Because you want to stop thinking about them simply make a pact with yourself to do something stupid each time your head wanders off to one of the subjects on your list. This can be shaking your head really hard or even do 3 push-ups. Warning: Be reasonable and always try to forget if it comes up again.
2. Do Yoga and exercises.
Doing daily exercising will get you in great shape and stops your head from wandering off. Don’t say to yourself I can’t exercise until I finished this, because that’s exactly what you want to get rid of. Even going for a walk outside is an excellent way of clearing the mind and blowing away the cobwebs of your mind. Exercise also raises your vibration and is an excellent mood improver.
3. Avoid daily routine
We like to plan our days so that we don’t hit any surprises. But there’s nothing wrong with some variation or spontaneous decisions. Donate to the charity collector in front of your food store. Smile randomly when you see a new shop opening up or a beautiful tree. They’re resources you can use for a very long time. You can visit the shop to buy new things, and the tree will always be there for your viewing pleasure – and oxygen.
4. The past and future is a reflection of the present.
The most important thing is to do good in the present. What you put out comes back to you amplified, so use every opportunity to make the most of every minute by doing the right thing for you and every one else. Great memories will bloom and future health and wealth can be created. With that in mind it’s only natural to be your best in the present. Really enjoy what you’re doing. Writing or watching television; find the good things in your current activity. It’s the only thing you should worry about.
5. If you don’t like the present, change it.
You can’t change the past but you can change the future. You have a blank page for you to write your future. And that’s most important. If you’re not happy with something in your life currently then change it. Want to be a architect? Go study architecture. Feeling lonely? Join a dating site, make a profile and meet new people. The only thing that is important is that your happy about the present. Only then your future is as bright as can be.
Practice living in the now and know that by accessing the power of now, you can enjoy even more success than ever before.
