Reading Time: < 1 minute

How many times do we find ourselves ruminating on the past? Or planning and dreaming about the future? Now is all we have. The past is gone and who knows if we will make it to tomorrow?

 

Now is the time to follow that dream…

Now is the time to be with your love ones…

Now is the time to make amendments…

Now is the time to forgive…

Now is the time to move on…

 

How can we concentrate on the here and now?

  • Breathe…whenever we feel anxious about our future or our past, breathe…in and out, in and out…try it right now – it might help you relax…
  • Savour the moment…let’s use our senses to savour the food we eat, the music we hear, the blue sky…it helps us focus on the here and now…
  • Lose yourself in what you love doing…dance, organise your house, give your all to your loved ones, do your best at work…
  • Do not live with anger in your heart…forgive, let go – if not for others for yourself…

 

So at times stop and concentrate on BEING
