6 Ways to Get Back In the Moment
Here we are almost through the month of July... Where did the summer go? I've been working extremely hard on laying down the fundamentals for the Create Change App Kickstarter & Pledge event in November, rebranding TrashN2Tees (what do you think?) , networking, sewing and to be honest there have been moments when I had to catch myself and get a reality check.
When I sat down to write this blog post I was going to talk about how I sometimes feel the need to disconnect to reconnect.
Like taking a break,
and soaking up a moment.
I make every effort to live my life .in. the. moment. It doesn't always come with balance, sometimes I have to remind myself with a nudge, kick, or push of the cliff shove. Here are 6 ways I get back in "the moment":
1. Be Grateful.
2. Focus on what is in front of you.
Right now there are eruptions of laughter and the thumping footsteps of giant scary monsters just a room away.
3. Acknowledge & Release.
Dwelling on an emotion is never healthy, alas we've all done it. Recognize it, give it a name, and let it go.
4. Emerse yourself in conversation.
Just listen. Intently.
5. Remember to breathe.
6. Repeat your mantra.
Remember that you're awesome. You have unique genius- and you do it better than anyone else can.
I really think its easy to go through the motions, get caught up in plans & chasing dreams- but I don't want anyone missing out on right. now. because truely those are the only moments you can live in.I can type this with such conviction and yet I sometimes find myself off kilter & out of wack. I hope you'll share your tips for un-funking, re-centering, and being in the moment in the comments below. Unless you care to tell me what you're smelling right now... that might be fun too.
