We are a goal-oriented society that is focused outwardly on experiences and accomplishments. We are spending little quiet time with ourselves and those close to us. Connecting to the current moment is the essence of fully experiencing your life.
- Active meditation is an effective and simple method to fully experience the current moment. Choose an awareness of one your senses, e.g., sound or feel. Spend as much time as you can during the day being aware of as many sensations as you can.
- Begin each day with a short engagement of this exercise and commit to practicing it throughout the day.
Other possibilities of focus include:
- Muscle tension
Active meditation is a tool that will calm you throughout your day and is a foundational reprograming tool.
