Sounds simple enough, right? Then why is it so difficult to stay focused on the present?
Thoughts from the past creep into our mind holding us captive to feelings of regret, pain, worry. Thoughts from the future rob us of today by convincing us we are better off filled with fear and anxiety.
Mindfulness is not one more thing to put on your to-do list.
Mindfulness is plugging back into your life.
Even in those moments you are feeling fearful or totally stressed or overwhelmed, when you focus on THIS moment those feelings are quelled.
It takes practice and patience and being kind and loving to yourself and to your thoughts. Merely gaining an awareness of the present is the first step to breaking old habits that keep us feeling powerless and frustrated.
