5 WAYS TO BECOME MORE PRESENT
Here are 5 ways to be more present:
1. Take 10 full deep breaths at the start of your day. Right when you wake up in the morning, before getting out of bed, take 10 full rounds of breath before getting up and starting your day.
2. Set an intention during your morning routine. Think about something you want to give POWER to. It can be a word (peace, love, acceptance) or a thought (be here now, look for the good, breathe in). Throughout your day reflect back to your intention and see what you can do it that moment to give it life.
3. Listen. Actively listen to what is going on in your environment (a conversation with someone, the radio, the sound outside, noises in your house, etc) and respond with intention. When we are fully present and engaged in a conversation or activity we tap into the raw beauty of the moment.
4. Keep a gratitude journal. At some point in your day reflect back on three things that you are grateful for. This gives energy to the positivity you have in your life.
5. Find something that makes you laugh. In my work I've found that people are almost always fully present when they are laughing and sharing joy. Even in the darkest of times, finding humor in something even for a small moment has a significant impact on your mood.
