Six Step Guide to Savoring the Now

LauraLee311

The latest issue of Psychology Today has an excellent article called "How to Live in the Moment." It really refreshed me, and re-inspired me to get in the habit of meditating daily.
So much of being happier is all about paradoxes. The best way to get to know yourself is to take a step back from yourself.

I know coulda, woulda and shoulda! I try not to hang out with them too much. They can really be a drag.

I have such a hard time staying in the now. I'm usually thinking about what I have to do next! Thanks for reminding me about Psychology Today. I used to really enjoy that publication for the insight it gave me into what is happening in the old noggin.

I agree, Laura. Sometimes, I think we our own worst enemies. We let all of our negative thoughts -- coulda, woulda, shouldas -- get in the way, and we push ourselves into a fearful state of living. I am guilty of it for sure, but the best thing we can remind ourselves of is how to live in the moment.

Looking forward to reading the article.
