You’ve heard it said before—probably many times—that it’s important to live in the present moment. Being present minded is the key to staying healthy and happy. It helps you fight anxiety, cut down on your worrying and rumination, and keeps you grounded and connected to yourself and everything around you.
Don't get me wrong, it’s good to think about the past and future sometimes; the problem is we tend to focus too intently (or even obsessively) on the past or the future.
One of the aims of mindfulness and a key factor in living a healthy life is to balance your thoughts of the past, the present, and the future.
Too much of any of them can have detrimental impacts on our life, but maintaining a balance between the three will make us happier and healthier individuals.
Here are a couple of ways you can practice being in the moment:
Be mindful about food - you can learn more here about that.
Practice mindful meditations. You can find plenty of free ones on my YouTube channel.
Go outside without your phone. Pay attention to everything around you. Sights, smells, textures...use the senses to notice it all!

Until next time, remember...Live, Love, & Magick!
