One of the best, unforeseen consequences of simplifying our lives is it has allowed us to begin living our lives in the present moment. Eliminating nonessential possessions has freed us from many of the emotions associated with past lives that were keeping us stuck. And clearing our home has allowed us the freedom to shape our lives today around our most important values. Living in the present moment means no longer worrying about what happened in the past and not fearing what will happen in the future. Choosing to live in the past or the future not only robs you of enjoyment today, but it also robs you of truly living.
The only important moment is the present moment. Minimalism forces you to live in the present. Removing items associated with past memories frees you and allows you to stop living in the past. Once the past no longer has power, you can begin to live in the moment.
Each day is full of endless possibilities! Start it with a smile. You are in control of your attitude every morning, keep it optimistic and expectant. Soak in as much of today as you possibly can — the sights, the sounds, the smells, the emotions, the triumph, and the sorrow. These are in our daily lives but we often forget to take them in and truly appreciate them. If you are harboring resentment towards another human being because of past hurts, choose to forgive and move on. The harm was their fault, but allowing it to impact your mood today is yours. Let go and choose to be present in the moment instead.
Love your job. There are two solutions: find a new job that you actually enjoy, or find something that you appreciate about your current career. Dream big. Set goals and plans for the future. But working hard today is always the first step towards realizing your dreams tomorrow.
Dreaming about the future is only productive when combined with action taken today. There is still plenty of time to build upon past successes and create more memories and achievements for future-you. Realize that tomorrow is going to happen whether you worry about it or not. And since worry has never accomplished anything for anybody, redirect your mental energy elsewhere.
Addictions in your life hold you hostage. They keep you from living a completely free life and removes your focus from the moment. Find some help. Take the steps. And remove their influence over your life. Allow yourself to live in the moment addiction-free. Learning how to live in the present moment is an essential ingredient in a happy life.
His new book, Things That Matter , will be published in April. Follow on Twitter Like on Facebook. Living in the moment sounds good, our present is forged by our past and will influence our future lives. Sometimes we need to look back to understand how we got here and to heal our present self.
How can you live in the moment, when everything is so bad still. Been in lockdown for 5 months now, see nobody, wish the days away because its so pointless. It is true that we cannot see the end of this but still you can help yourself by reading good books, quality content online You are here now , excercising or singing to yourself.
You can try by small talks at gas station, coffee shop etc. Sometimes it is enough to wish someone a good day…. Actualy if you feel like you say you do, I think this is wrong article for you…. Anyway, this will pass. Good luck. My parents are aged. Overthinking kills me. Well, re read the article again and again. May be you can flush the worries away and be happy, joyful, and grateful that you have parents and a home to live with them.
Enjoy each moment with them. Everyday ah?? Can you do it? Or keep crying about the problem? Try living with them than being afraid for them. Spend more time with them. Ask them questions tell them how you feel about there health and how much you care for them cos that is living. Wake up early and say a prayer together with them start from there and trust me wuth God helping your heart will be open more to live with them as there are then being afraid of what they will become. Everyone has a purpose in life. Each and every person is born into this world for a certain reason.
Some people can easily find their purpose early on in their lives, while others might have to spend half of their lifetimes trying to figure out the reason why they are here. Nonetheless, regardless of time, everyone has the capacity to find meaning in life. This was super helpful God Bless you and Thank you! My husband filed for divorced because of his mistress and told me has know feelings for me anymore. It was tragic for months without my husband. I actually want him back he was the only man i have loved all through my life we started when we where both young. The buddhist Old religion priest is a very holy and powerful man, I have never seen anything like this.
It is a good remedy to resolve marital problems. Reading thisnhelped me understand what it is I wanted to look for within myself. Instead of stressing on the things of tomorrow I should take my journey a step at a time and focus on decisions that help me better the future to come. So thank you. Very effective! Thank you sincerely! My daughter never spend time with me. Even my hubbi. I was consumed by genealogy research. I felt I was dwelling in the past constantly thinking about dead relatives I nver met.
I found myself looking back… literally… all day long! Being in the moment is an absurd concept. I suppose that if you had a monastic lifestyle where your day is planned for you so that a bell rings to wake you up, another bell for time to eat, and for hours a day blankly staring at a wall or slowly walking from one place to another then being in the now may be somewhat approached.
I suppose that such a lifestyle or going on retreats are deed that way. Could you read a book in the now? All the plot, character development and so on would not exist, only the word you were reading, if that. The idea that I started this comment calling being in the now absurd would have been lost to you if you were reading this in the now and any negative reactions to that statement also… gone. Of course one could say well when I remember something that I am remembering it now and when I write a grocery list for the future use I am doing that in the now also.
Of course that means there is no thought action or observation that is not in the now. What I am guessing people mean by being in the now is to have the focus of attention on the senses, the stream of information from the nervous system from causes outside the body or internally, not from memory or emotions. Even there I doubt this would be a better state of awareness than having the full benefit of associations of memory and emotions, sort of like watching a movie with the sound off. Taking our lives personally, obsessive dwelling on problems that have no immediate consequence should probably be avoided if possible.
Spending time watching you breathing may be some kind of answer, but so would taking a narcotic. Thank you! Someone who thinks like me! As you say, just simply reading a passage would have you getting to the end only to have forgotten the beginning.
So are we to accustom our thinking to adapt to different situations? Ie planning for a vacation at the weekend means you have to think ahead. Simple daily tasks require planning…. Grocery shopping, meal planning etc. It is simply not possible to live in the exact moment in which we are in. It means not worrying about the far away future that is uncertain. Great article! I totally agree with you. Like if we want to conquer the anxiety of life we should live in the moment, live in the breath.
This inspired me but depressed me too. I am in a difficult place right now and have issues with most of your points. I am embracing this and requiring it of everyone in my household. Ok with this as happy moments catch me off guard especially around my grandchildren.
Have problems with this as the past has such a hold on me. I have wasted the past 14 years unable to forgive or move forward after my divorce. I have no job due to a injury on the job in Looking toward the future is impossible. Past accomplishments are all I have. See no future, No worries. Addictions, cigarettes, pain medicine. Working on the first, debating the second.
Waiting for disability to be approved, depending on daughter for support, spend days, weeks in bed sleeping or just starring at walls, try to make myself get up to just move to a living room chair doing more of the same.
Daydream about going to sleep and never waking up. Removing myself as a burden for everyone. I do read, a lot. Maybe a journal would be helpful. Good luck in your endeavors and please keep these articles coming.What you need at the moment
