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.
