Tune In – How To Be “Present”


Are you there?

People talk about being “present” all the damn time – but what does it actually mean?

What does being present give me that having my nose buried in my smartphone doesn’t?

To truly appreciate the gift of life you need to be able to live in the moment.

When things start to become routine, we tend to switch off and live in our own heads.

Now there’s nothing wrong with that per se, but there’s a lot of cool shit going on in the big-wide-out-there.

Here’s a quick exercise I like to use to bring myself back into the present moment and TUNE IN.

Whenever you are doing a menial task like washing dishes, brushing your teeth or getting dressed – do it the completely opposite way to the way you normally would.

Wash the plates before the cutlery
Brush your teeth with the opposite hand
Put on your shoes before your dress

You could even try hanging out with your mates on the stairs instead of your couch…

Whatever it is – do it differently.

The very act of defying the routine brings you back into the present moment.

The present is where LIFE HAPPENS.

You’re a Black Sheep too, right?
Hi! I’m Amanda :)
I've always been a Black Sheep and love encouraging others to live life on their own terms and find their true purpose. Be The Black Sheep was born as a way for me to ignite this passion on a much larger scale than having a cuppa and strategy session with a couple of my mates.
We only get one chance at life - this is not a drill, folks! It's really important to me that my "flock" understand this. I provide them with the tools I've discovered on my own person journey as well as ongoing inspiration and mentorship to ensure they are on track to being their best selves.
My new book, "Be The Black Sheep - How to Find Your True Purpose and Live Life on Your Own Terms" is due to be released later in 2018.
