How often are we thinking ahead to the future or looking back to past? How long do we spend distracting ourselves from reality with technology? Many of us rarely live in the moment. It is a skill that needs to be practiced and developed. We are constantly wondering how we can make things better, or wishing that things were how they used to be. However, when doing that we completely lose focus on the only thing we can loosely control – the present moment.
We do not have a time machine that can take us back, nor can we see into the future. There is no need to worry about things you cannot control. Immerse yourself in the present and give your whole self to the people that surround you. You’ll be surprised how great it feels to give someone your full attention. Appreciate the time you have with others, whether is it enjoyable or not. Put the phones away and start to live and love life.
