In our hectic world, we often get so caught up in endless amounts of work and eating fast overly processed foods without a second to spare. We’re so attached to being “connected” via smartphones, computers, or other technology. Try to live in the now. It’s an act of “mindfullness.” Embrace the sounds, the smells, the people around you and breath it all in. Here’s a few suggestions.
1) Go with the flow. Stop thinking about it. We may feel uncomfortable when taking a new dance class and think “everyone’s looking at my awkward dance moves.” They most likely aren’t even paying attention.
2) Focus on the present. When’s the last time we actually tasted what we were eating? We need to take a step back and enjoy the act of cooking, eating a meal or drinking coffee; savor the moment.
3) Engage in random acts of kindness. Holding the door for someone or giving a compliment goes a long way.
4) Start your journey by being thankful. We all have golden gifts right in front of us whether it’s your health, family, friends, and a home.
