You might have noticed that I have not been blogging much or sharing pictures and videos on my social media and that’s because I have been living in the moment. It’s so easy to fall into the hole of uploading every second of our lives to social media but, in that short moment between uploading something and finding the perfect caption; you have missed so many beautiful moments around you. When you live in the present moment, the past and the future is irrelevant, right here right now, is all that counts! Being mindfully present allows you to appreciate your surroundings more which effectively makes you feel happier, calmer and less anxious.
Ever heard of the old saying ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’. I sometimes take pictures during a moment but I don’t upload them anywhere, I keep them in a folder so that I can go back and reminisce on how amazing that moment felt to me. What’s quite funny is that by looking back at a picture, you find a lot of things that you did not notice because you’re too busy focusing on one particular thing.
The next time you are walking, driving or at a social event; pay close attention to what’s around you, listen to the sounds, observes the people, notice to the energy in the space. Find the appreciation in the moment you are experiencing, do not worry about what you have to do in the future because all of that can wait. The best way to enjoy life is to be present.
Try and start capturing moments with your eyes rather than your phone, you’ll be surprised at what you discover!
