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.
