I believe that learning to live in the present moment is the secret to mental health. 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.
Stop looking back regretting and looking ahead hoping things will get better.
