THE IMPORTANCE OF MINDFULNESS AND BEING PRESENT (AND HOW TO KNOW WHEN YOU’RE NOT)

If your mind is racing, you’re living in the future. And if you’re thinking about something that happened last night or last decade, you are living in the past.

Basically, you’re anywhere except where you need to be right now: IN THE PRESENT.

Reflecting on experience is incredibly valuable to help you make better decisions going forward … 

But dwelling on your problems is linked with developing anxiety and depression. 

The holiday season can get overwhelming and downright stressful, so to help you stay present and actually ENJOY the season, I wanted to share a few things that I personally do to help me stay centered and present. 

Here are just a few:

1 – Get in a solid workout

2 – Go outside for a walk – or just find a quiet place outside to sit!

3 – Do something creative 

4 – Meditate or do deep breathing for 5 minutes

5 – Read a book for FUN

6 – Listen to some of my favorite music

7 – Perform a random act of kindness for a friend or stranger

8 – Take a nap 

9 – Play with your kids or pets

10 – Journal and practice gratitude 

All of these activities have the power to bring you back to the present moment and help you to be more mindful going forward.

This is so important year-round … but even more important during the holidays.

Make sure you prioritize some time to unplug and “be here now” – because that’s what the holidays are all about!
