Most of our lives are occupied with interpreting the past and planning for the future. Because of this, most of us don’t even know what’s happening right now.

Often, we go through the motions in our daily life without fully experiencing them. However, if you want more happiness and success, now it will help you to become more mindful. 

Fully Experiencing What is Happening Right Now

As you listen, are you also watching TV or listening to other external noises within your environment, trying to stop your cat from jumping on the kitchen table?

Instead, try to listen carefully, blocking everything else out. It’s only going to take about two minutes of your life to hear this without interruption. 

Letting Go of Expectations of What You Are Experiencing in the Present

If you have a big event to attend, it’s easy to allow expectations to rule the moment. You may even go into the situation with too many ideas of what will happen to ruin your experience. Instead, try to stay grounded so that you honestly know what is happening.
