Today we want to bring your attention to your focus. What do you mostly focus on? Is it your past, your present or your future. If focusing on your past brings depression and focusing on your future brings anxiety, then perhaps your peace can be found in your present. It is not always second nature to focus on the present, however it can be a choice. We have to start by being mindful of our thoughts and where our focus is being drawn to. One way to begin to focus on the present is to use our five senses; taste, touch, site, smell and sound. Using sight, we can look around the room we are in and notice things that are in the room. Next pay attention to the taste that is in your mouth, if you are eating something be mindful of the flavors that are in your mouth. Notice how your hands feel, if you are touching a keyboard or holding your phone, pay attention to how it feels to touch the things that are in your present. Next pay attention to the smells that are around you currently in this moment and lastly pay attention to the noises you hear. You may hear the sound of someone sleeping or the sound of a fax or the hum of an air conditioner. When you find yourself dwelling on your past, or in anxiety over your future, take a time out to divert your focus to your present and try to "just be" and "just breath." Please give it a try, we hope this helps!
Thanks for reading and have an awesome day!
