The present is a gift because we are never promised tomorrow, so stop waiting for tomorrow to start living your life. I fully believe that we should always live in the moment and start living our dreams now. What are you waiting for? Keep reading for my tips on how to live in the present and find joy in every day.
How to Live Your Best Life in the Present Moment
Think About What Makes You Happy
Start small. Do you love it when strangers smile at you? Then start smiling at and talking to strangers. Everything you want begins with you. Make a list of daily joys you wish to experience and reflect on these at the end of each day. How many did you check off your list? Feels good, right? Make time for loved ones, always! Tomorrow is not promised to any of us.
Live in the Moment
Stop saving your bucket list for retirement. There are no guarantees in life. If you can hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu or jump out of an airplane at 75, more power to you! But that’s not a reality for most of us. Think about what you can and want to accomplish and start doing them all, today!
Evolve Your Bucket List
Add to your bucket list whenever you feel inspired to experience something new. And hold your feet to the fire about immersing yourself in those adventures. Be open to spontaneity, and if you do something incredible off the cuff, add it to your bucket list and check it off. Keep your list as a reminder of the beautiful life you’ve committed to living for yourself in the present moment.
