What is present moment and how to practice it

Present moment is all that you have. Everything begins and ends at the moment, not tomorrow, nor yesterday, but in the present moment.

It is very important what you are going to do in the present moment. Present moment will determine your future. Everything that you do today, will set you up for tomorrow.

Whatever that you want to accomplish tomorrow, in a week time, or a year, you must start today, and in the present moment. That can be researching, planning, finding the right partners, whatever.

Story

Years ago I heard someone saying: “When you are in a rush, you stop creating.”

It shook me, because I was always in a rush. Always trying to get somewhere on a time, trying to accomplish as much as I can for that day, always in great stress, not being able to really see and feel the moment, appreciate for what I already have.

Solution

So the solution, if you want to practice being in the present moment, is to slow down, just do everything at the slow pace. Really, nothing easier than that.

Were you ever in a rush, driving your car 100 miles per hour, trying to reach the destination, not even remembering the journey? I am sure you did that at least once. This is not being in the present moment.

Being in present moment is taking time to drive, setting an intention for your destination, enjoying listening the radio, actually seeing the landscape while driving, remembering all the town and villages that you driven through.

This is being in the present moment, and actually enjoying it.

I found for you an amazing video about 8 ways how to practice being in present moment. It is here:

Best practice for me is certainly feeling your movement. Feeling your feet touching the ground, feeling your legs walk you from point A to point B, feeling water on your hands, feeling toothbrush brushing your teeth, etc.

If you practice being in present moment, it can increase your joy and happiness. Why? Because there will be no room for the anxiety of the future or guilt of the past, you will simply exist and BE. We are not human doings after all, but BEings.

My video version about present moment; it might be of better help for you, and to understand more;

So how are you going to practice being in present moment, and why are you going to do that anyway?

It is very important to know why. Why is important to you, and why you want to practice it, what are you trying to accomplish?

Here are again ways how to do that:

  1. Breathe consciously
  2. Slow down
  3. Feel your feet touching the ground
  4. Feel your body sensations
  5. Meditate

Conclusion

Present moment is all that we have because past we only hold in our memories, good or bad, and future is yet to come, if at all. Sorry to say that, but it’s true. We don’t know what future holds!

So to practice being in present moment, being aware of what we are doing, how we are doing it, and the how, we can create our own reality.

Everything is happening in the now, past, present and the future, that is exactly why it is very powerful.
