Human beings are often human doings. Lost for hours in thought, emotion, and all the doing, the challenge is remembering to spend time just being. It can be helpful to set a reminder on your phone or smart watch or anchor the practice of being to the moment before you eat every meal. Then pause, sense the body, orient to the space around you, and let that be enough, even if just for one inhale and one exhale. Experience your completeness.
In mindful presence,
We think that accomplishing things will complete us, when it is experiencing life that will.
