I’m constantly coming across the phrase “be in the moment”. I used it myself in my post what I learned in under 150 words.
But what the hell does it mean? Simply put it means experiencing a moment without the baggage of past and future.
Try this exercise – it takes all of 5 seconds:
Let go of your past – just for this breath.
Try to feel the air as it moves across your nose or your lips.
Don’t worry about the future – just for this breath.
That’s it. You were in the moment. It’s really simple. Not easy, but simple. Repeat that simple exercise a couple of times per day for a week, and watch what happens.
