It’s a busy world we live in. From the moment we wake up, we are bombarded by tasks, obligations, worries, and fears.
A famous quote by writer and historian Alice Morse Earle goes: Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That is why it’s called the present.
We live in a fast-paced world where every minute counts. We have to work from sunup to sundown, and more often than not we feel stressed at work. But what would happen if one day, we realize that life has passed us by? That in just one blink, you’ve missed the present because you had been worrying about the future or stuck in your past?
What you need is to learn about mindfulness.
Living in the Moment
Do you remember that time when you daydreamed about vacation while at work? Or that time when you had gone on a trip, but kept worrying about work that you were itching to go home?
Mindfulness is the act of living in the moment. When you find your thoughts wondering somewhere else, you have to ask yourself, “Are you happy where you are? What’s distracting you from the present?”
When you live in the moment, you become more aware of what’s around you. You can never bring back the past, but when you continue to bring up past emotions and regrets, you will lose taking advantage of the happiness in your present. Worrying over the future will also take away your concentration of the present.
