Are you feeling weighed down, or anxious or already behind the eight ball, about how you are going to achieve your goals for 2020? First were you present when you set your goals? In today’s world most people are so stressed, overwhelmed or rushing non-stop they set unrealistic goals. An example; if in the past you have failed to take action towards a goal, chances are that you have not set a goal that is inspirational enough to part of yourself or to your whole self.
By being present there are oodles of wellbeing benefits, not just for goal setting either. Living in the moment, is each meeting you have, everything you experience is a unique treasure that will never be repeated again. So, if you let it slip away without enjoying it, the moment will be lost forever. The Japanese call this ichigo ichie and by becoming aware and practicing it, will help you to take your foot off the accelerator and remember each morning you spend in the world, every moment you spend with your loved ones is infinitely valuable and deserves your full attention.
Goethe quotes “Nothing is worth more than this day”, I quote “Nothing is worth more than this moment”. Try living more in the moment, it will allow you to lead a happier and more fulfilled life. You’ll learn to live fully in the present, acknowledging and appreciating the gift of life and every moment.
