6 Ways You Can Live In The Moment This 2019
You know when the year’s almost over and you think to yourself, what have I done over the past year?
OK, that question might seem a little scary and daunting to even go there. But we mean in a positive sense too. The amazing holidays you had travelling to a different country, those moments you laughed out loud with your BFFs until your stomach hurt, that day when you successfully launched a huge project.
Those days should totally be embraced! But a lot of us tend to focus on the negative stuff, even if it was one negative thing that really impacted us the past year.
That’s why we want to show you how you can live in the moment this 2019. When you’re present in the little moments in your life, you’ll find that you’re able to enjoy them a lot more. The bad days won’t seem so bad because they’re only part of the journey.
Also, when you’re a lot more aware of your surroundings, you’ll be able to find the good things — like the delicious lunch you had during a tough work day, the fact that you have incredible friends and family around you or that you have a job that gives you income! It’s just a lot easier to find things to be grateful for when we’re more present.
It’s easier said than done, but a little goes a long way!
Go on a digital detox
Let’s be honest. How much are you really on your phone? You wake up in the morning and the first thing you do is scroll through Instagram. What? It’s been 20 minutes already??? Now you have to rush to get ready and don’t have time for breakfast!
Starting the day off in a rush can affect the rest of your day. So, we want to suggest that you limit your time spent on social media. The iPhone now allows you to track your screen time. Enable it in your settings and that’ll give you a good indication of how much you’re on your phone.
If you’re really feeling up for the challenge, go on a digital detox! Spend a week off Instagram and see how you feel. Chances are you’ll realise that you don’t need to spend all that time scrolling and have a lot more time for other things.
