When you begin developing daily habits that help you stay in the present moment, you begin feel more relaxed, in focus and in tune with yourself and the world around you.
Each day take time to implement something that helps you stop and focus on the moment. When you are more mindful and present, you will feel like you have more control over your life.
Be sure to implement self-care as a part of your mindfulness habits. The first step in any plan to be more in the present moment begins with a better, healthier you. This can include relaxing in an essential oil bath, reading motivational books or simply renewing your spiritual connection daily.
Try to find time to fit in exercise every day. This can be as simple as a short walk around the block or working in your garden. Join the gym, take-up a team sport, or begin dancing. The important thing is the find a way to get movement into your day that allows you to focus on the moment.
Choose healthy foods that your body wants. Before you reach for something, take note of how your body feels. Is it craving a big juicy apple or are you just needing water? Be aware of what your body craves, not what you think you want.
No matter what new daily habits you develop to stay in the present moment you will begin to notice less stress. Your body, mind and emotions will be more relaxed, and you’ll begin to notice how enjoyable your life is.
