How Living in the Present Can Help You Get More Out of Life

Remaining in the present is often easier said then done — at times, what we need is a reminder to appreciate what is directly around us. In this video, Jack Canfield talks about some tips that have worked for him to remain in the present moment. 

Letting go of the past can be difficult. It takes conviction and courage to embrace the present that will tell your future. But every moment presents an opportunity to create ourselves anew, to shrug off the things of the past and open ourselves up to the possibility of the moment and take action to create an incredible future we desire. {Read the full article here}

To begin with, you have to remind yourself to stay in or reset yourself to a being aware of the present. You can do so by taking a few minutes each day to remind yourself to stay present. The only way you can accept new joy and happiness into your life is to make space for it. Therefore, no matter what has happened to you in the past, remember that you are in control of your life and you have the power to make a great future for yourself.

Need some relaxation to remain present? Taking time to meditate and relax during your day can be extremely helpful. 

Finally, Canfield recommends being more aware of your surroundings. For instance, if you feel frustrated by long lines, consider that waiting is just a state of mind. You can remove yourself out of that attitude by simply treasuring the experience you will have in the future, striking up a conversation with a neighbor or soaking up the beauty of your surroundings.
