THE POWER OF LIVING IN THE PRESENT MOMENT

I went to post my Five On Friday list ( on Friday ) but my computer was on the fritz. So here’s the list today, on Monday. Last week we talked about living in the present moment. We can have more POWER and PEACE in our lives when we are really living in present moment awareness. Peace does not come  when we are  STUCK in our old thought patterns that bring fearful and anxious thoughts of the future and anger or bitterness of the past. But by living in the moment we can become FREE to be the person we were MADE TO BE, not the person affected by our past, circumstances, ego, or old habits of thought. We were CREATED to LIVE MOMENT TO MOMENT. But if we have made a habit out of living in our thoughts, we need to begin to INTENTIONALLY PRACTICE living in the moment. So here are 5 simple things to remember to help you do just that.

5 Things To Do To Live In The Present

1) BREATHE              ( periodically sit down to relax and BREATHE deeply focusing on the breaths only ..in through the nose, out through the mouth )

2) SAVOR                ( deeply SAVOR the simple moments of life, even REALLY noticing a simple flower)

3) FOCUS                 (  Always FOCUS  your thoughts on what you are doing at the moment )

4) ENJOY                 ( find something you ENJOY doing so much you lose track of time when you’re doing it and do it as much as possible…perhaps a hobby)

5) DELETE                ( when unwanted thoughts come roaming into your mind, DELETE them until they’re gone and replace them with thoughts of good )
