Learning To Live In The NOW
In our fast paced lives we truly forget what it means to be alive and living in the present.
We are slowly shutting ourselves from our immediate surroundings and that’s affecting us mentally as well as spiritually.
What’s the meaning of living in the present?
It’s a question that requires a lot of introspection. It basically means that we need to be mentally and physically present in a moment at the same time.
These days most of us fail to make our minds stay in the moment. We end up letting ourselves fly away to distant landscapes. It’s calming and entertaining and to be honest, it is not harmful. On the contrary, it does have some pretty helpful elements.
Daydreaming is problematic when you spend too much of your time daily doing it. If it becomes an integral part of your life, it’s time to take some preventive measures.
This is because you stop living your life as it is and create a make-believe universe in your head. It must have happened that you have been so distracted in your thoughts that you couldn’t respond to someone’s questions.
Although it seemed like you were paying attention to them, you weren’t mentally there at all, which is extremely insulting to the other person.
This will not only affect your relationship with others but also impact the bond you share with yourself. Learn to live in the moment in order to live a better life.
You might be wondering how your regular schedule and normal activities like cleaning and cooking make a difference in your lifestyle and spirituality.
Well, it actually helps a lot. When we are aware of our current surroundings, our mind and body are together.
We are in tune with our physical selves and are aware of its wants and needs; our bodies can also understand the emotions and thoughts, creating a proper union.
