Research* suggests that 40 percent of daily activities are habits. Much of thinking is habitual, too. In other words, we run on autopilot a lot of the time. Step out of the rut and Make Your Presence Your Present.
This holiday season, give yourself the gift of being fully present and aware in your own life. Using whatever technique you prefer, notice throughout the day what you are thinking, feeling and needing–without expectations, “shoulds” or the desire to change anything. Simply be with yourself. Then notice the impact on your mood and self-care. This awareness, this presence, is life itself.
