It’s very easy for people to say “just be more present” or “you just have to enjoy the moment”, but if you’re like most people it’s easier said than done. Especially if you are an ambitious, high-achiever personality because you are on fast forward thinking 5, 10, 15 steps into the future at all times. Being stuck on your past isn’t helpful either. To feel at peace and be able to live your best life, it is important to learn how to slow things down and fully appreciate each moment.
One way to engage in the present and immerse yourself in your surroundings is to activate all your senses:
- Find 5 things you can see
- 4 things you can touch
- 3 things you can hear
- 2 things you can smell
- 1 thing you can taste
Try this throughout your day to slow things down and develop your ability to be present:)
