How to live in the present?
Do you live in the present? Can living in the present help you have peace of mind? How to live in the present?
Living in the present is needed to live a healthy life that is filled with serenity and peace of mind. As long as you stay living in the past or the future, you will not experience true peace of mind and anxiety will be part of your life.
When Jennifer split with her boyfriend, she remained for many months in tears. Every night before she goes to bed and when she gets up in the morning, she kept thinking of how their relationship was, which is why it was very difficult for her to get over her lover. She lived in the past, not the present, hence excessive stress and anxiety affected her thoughts and health.
As I mentioned in my book “How to overcome worry and have peace of mind” that living in the present, not only helps you combat anxiety and excessive worry, but it will also help you achieve peace of mind.
Benefits of living in the present

Living in the present
If you want to learn how to live in the present to have peace of mind, follow the two steps below:
There are many different ways you can use to help you improve your concentration skills, so you can live in the present. One of my favorite exercises is “focusing on the task.” When you concentrate and focus on what you are doing, make sure you don’t digress or leave what you are doing until you finish what you are doing.
For example, if you are reading a book, decide to focus on reading for 10 minutes. During those moments, allow nothing to take your focus away from the task. As you practice and improve your concentration, the better you get at living in the moment.
Meditation is one of the best methods that you can do to help you start living in the present and achieve peace of mind. There are many forms of meditations you can use such as Qi Qong among others.
When your mind is calm and clear of negative thoughts, you will find yourself mentally relaxed and able to give your best in all areas of your life.
Finally, always remember what Terri Guillemets said, “Don’t let the past steal your present.”
