Oh, how much I love writing about women empowerment. I find it so important for us ladies all over the world to continue inspiring and believing in each other. My platform is specially created in order for you to find the answers to your daily questions here. Therefore, today I’ll give you 6 pieces of advice on how to live in the moment. Seize the day girls!
You’ve seen every social campaign encouraging others to live in the moment. Well, I’ll teach you how to start NOW.
Why living in the moment is so important?
Living in the moment is so famous and important because people often tend to get distracted and scared by their past or future, and forget to enjoy the present. Living in the present will teach you how to enjoy life more. After all, you must reach your full potential and create a life you love.
Actually, have you ever imagined how beautiful life would be if you started enjoying little things exactly when they happen? Stop overthinking every step in your journey and start seizing the day! You’ll only live once, right?
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.Buddha
Focus on your breath. Inspire and expire. Meditating should work in order for you to focus on the things that matter. Forget about the past or the future. You are living NOW. The past can’t be changed, but the future will be influenced by your present actions.
You can meditate everywhere : a quiet park, your garden, on the beach, on the shore of a river… literally everywhere quiet. Pack a mat and chose a spot! Relief your mind from all the worries by breathing and manifesting your life.
2. Stop being afraid
The meeting of two eternities, the past and the future… is precisely the present moment.Henry David Thoreau
In order to seize the day, you’ll have to get rid of your fears. I’m not referring to fears of height, spiders, small spaces etc… I’m talking about the little social fears we all have. For example, if you want to dye your hair, do it. Talk to that girl in the back of your classroom, book that flight and travel. Stop overthinking the little enjoyments in life and don’t be afraid. You’ll once realise that all of these fears can do nothing but bad to you.
Remember then: there is only one time that is important – Now! It is the most important time because it is the only time when we have any power.Leo Tolstoy
You have limited time in this life. Stop taking things for granted and smile more! It’s scientifically proven that smiling will have an effect on your mood. Trick your brain into avoiding negative feelings.
Take a look in the mirror and appreciate your beauty. Even if it might be quite hard for you to find reasons to smile, remember that you’re unique. A good exercise in order to achieve this goal is to write down a few reasons to smile every day. When you wake up take a look over the list, your mood will change instantly.
4. Kill em’ with kindness
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land, there is no other life but this.Henry David Thoreau
Kindness can help you improve your happiness in seconds. A great way to live in the moment is to perform different acts of kindness. For instance, if you cross the street and you see a women struggling with grocery store bags, offer your help. This is your chance to promote women empowerment🙂 Also, these acts will not only improve your mood, but it’ll improve someone else’s too. Don’t expect anything back, just be kind.
5. Be thankful
Having spent the better part of my life trying either to relive the past or experience the future before it arrives, I have come to believe that in between these two extremes is peaceUnknown
It sounds easy, right? Well, it’s not that simple to realise how many things you should be thankful for. You’re surrounded by people who love and admire you, be thankful. Appreciate the little things around you. Not many have the opportunities you might encounter. Learn how to thank people for their gestures. This little exercise will help you a lot in increasing not only your happiness, but will also teach you how to live in the moment.
6. Forget how much the past hurts
Today is life — the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto.Dale Carnegie
I know it might hurt you, but it’s now time to forget it. Focus your attention on other things. Improve your life and try tricking your brain into not thinking about the past. It’s so important to enjoy life at it’s fullest. Therefore, every time a dark memory from your past comes to surface, try finding your comfort memory. Use it all the time. You can think about your loved ones, a moment you’ve felt extremely happy, literally anything. I truly believe YOU can do it.
All things considered, it’s extremely beautiful to be able to live in the moment. Carpe diem babes! I’m always here if you need other women empowerment pieces of advice, just DM me on my Instagram ( @notagirlygal ).
