Being Attentive Costs Us NothingSo why do we use the word "paying" there?
But it comes at the cost of Being.
So today, I'm putting this at the top of my to-be list: Be.
We can learn a lesson from children and animals. They stay present and focused in the moment.
How Do I Do That?I can set a reminder on my smart phone. There are apps for that. I like Mindfulness. I can set a bowl to chime at any interval between a minute and 23 hours, 59 minutes, and have it run for up to 24 hours. Or I can set it to random.
I can use an outside cue such as the telephone or the doorbell or any ringing sound. Each time I hear the phone ring, it can be a reminder to take a breath and Be. Remember that I am. Or in the car, I can use turn signals as my cue. Each time I see them or use them, or see someone change lanes without using them, it can be my reminder.
How About You?How do you remember to stay in the Present Moment?
