“Stress is caused by being ‘here’ but wanting to be ‘there’“- Eckhart Tolle.
Please read that line again.
I am actually just going to leave this with you to ponder on, but I will give you a clue….
How much of your waking day do you truly spend living in ‘THE NOW’?
Just notice yourself this week, notice your mind wondering, worrying about something that happened last week (there), and worrying about something that is going to happen in the future (there). All the while really missing what is going on RIGHT NOW (Here).
Notice where your mind wanders when you are out walking, driving, putting the washing on or emptying the dishwasher…are you HERE or THERE?
What proportion of your time is spent HERE…NOW…in the PRESENT?
Notice, notice notice.
No judgement, just awareness.
