Be Present: Just Breathe.
Being Present, yes it’s simple but not always easy.
One easy exercise to see how present you are is to watch back yourself on video and simply ask, “How present was I in that video?” It’s a unique and vivid exercise that is exquisitely revealing. If you are doing a video with someone, it’s fairly easy to see if you were being present. Here’s a video I did on the topic. Were you actively listening or just waiting for your turn to talk? Could you sense you were nervous? About what? Usually nervousness is about something that’s not in present time. It’s usually worry or anxiety.
Be Present: It makes no sense to worry
My favorite author, Wayne Dyer, said many times, “It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there’s nothing you can do about them, and why worry about things you do control? The activity of worrying keeps you immobilized.”
One way to get back to being present: Just breathe.
We breathe over 20,000 breaths each day. How many are we aware of? Setting aside a few minutes each day for mindful breathing can make a big difference in how you are being present each day.
Be Present: Focus on one thing
Here’s how to do it: whatever you’re doing, right now, learn to focus completely on doing that one thing. Pay attention: to every aspect of what you’re doing, to your body, to the sensations, to your thoughts. Not only is this important for mindfulness, but also the key to happiness.
