Instead of dwelling on the past or the present, stay in the moment. Notice the good details, however small. Take the day as it comes, rather than measuring against possibly unrealistic expectations. Being present can allow you to connect to beauty, delight and magic of special moments. Being present helps you to manage your energy better, to live fully ... allowing more of your true self to emerge, whilst being more in control of your life.
Finally, by being present in the moment, rather than reacting to thoughts and emotions that can cause negativity and conflicting mind states, you can develop, maintain an inner strength, happiness and peace … what better way to spend each and every day?
