Much of the time we are not present with what we are doing, whether it is a task or a conversation.
In our activities we our body is with us, but that is about it. Our mind is either in the past or future, taking us away from experiencing what is in front of us. At times it is out of habit and other times it is our choice. Either way, we are not where our feet are planted.
- Take a breath
- Feel your feet on the floor
- Use your senses: Focus your eyes on what you are looking at or focus your hearing on your conversation.
- Truly be with what is happening in the moment and when you drift from the task at hand, take a breath and use your senses to bring you back.
Let me know in the comments below how this worked for you. Were you able to bring yourself to the moment? If not, what do you think happened?
