Stay in the moment


“Where has the time flown?!” We often find ourselves asking this question, which is a pity. Here are three suggestions for taking time out, to stay in the moment:

  1. Go off tech. Switch off all your devices, even if for just a couple of minutes, each day. Close your eues, focus on your breath and just enjoy the sounds around you and the stillness within.
  2. Take a mindful walk. Even when you are walking, you can turn each step into a mindful one: take a deep breath with every stride, be conscious of the contact your feet make with the ground, look at what you pass and listen to the sounds.
  3. Savor each meal. Cooking a meal enables you to explore your creativity and disconnect yourself from the day’s stress. So throw yourself into it wholeheartedly: enjoy the preparation, enjoy the meal, and enjoy the meditative sense it brings, too.
