There are many secrets of mental health – one is to ‘live in the present moment‘ but learning to live this way is not easy.
We can spend a lot of our time – looking back and regretting or wishing and looking ahead waiting for things to change – usually for the better. When we do this, we miss now! We can be among family or friends and not really be present to them, mentally and/or emotionally. We might as well not be with them at all if our mind is somewhere else.
LIVE IN THE PRESENT MOMENT – if you’re peeling potatoes then concentrate on doing that. Whatever you’re doing, concentrate on that one thing.
We may be physically present to family and friends but if mentally or emotionally we are somewhere else, we might as well not be there.
The purpose of this website is to offer alternative ways of thinking to all of the unhappy people who live with the label ‘mental illness‘.I want to encourage all of you who are willing to try another way – a way of CHOICE!
