P.S. Let me know ways you stay in the present moment. Leave a comment. I’m always looking for new ways to be peace.
Good one…..life keeps dragging you into the anxiety ridden future which makes you pine for the past and simpler times…..it is hard to stay in the present and stay at peace. I see the steps to formulate an action plan and be actively focused on it….but…How do you react perfectly to keep from being dragged?
It’s a moment to moment thing. Notice your thoughts. Notice your feelings. Are you thoughts and feelings in alignment with your vision? If not, shift your thoughts and feelings. Use the AIRR Method. It takes practice. The more you notice and shift in the moment, the easier it gets.
