I want to be in the present moment.
Being truly present in the here and now starts with being aware of what you are feeling, thinking, and doing. When you can do this without any judgment, we call it mindfulness. Maintain awareness of your thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. When you consciously observe what's happening around you, you create a new perspective on the experience. You become aware of your body's signals. Recognize which events create tension, examine your habitual respons, and learn new ways to deal with it. Discover how meditation and breathing exercises can contribute to reducing your tension.
