How to Live in the NOW

Many people live in the future. Why? Most people have a future that doesn’t mirror their present so they’d rather be in the future. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing because Law of Attraction states, “…that which you give your attention to will manifest in your life.” However, staying in the future means your present is passing you by. The following are some ways to help you live in the now and live a happy life without stress.

1. Don’t think about it.

Your goal is to stop thinking all the time. Go write down things that pop in your mind, this could be exams that are coming up or that visit to grandpa in a few weeks. Then cross off the ones that you are happy about. The first kiss with your lover can be a great memory that you might want to remind yourself of sometimes. Now you’ve a list of bad things you think about all the time. Because you want to stop thinking about them simply make a pact with yourself to do something stupid each time your head wanders off to one of the subjects on your list. This can be shaking your head really hard or even do 3 push-ups. Warning: Be reasonable and always try to forget if it comes up again.

2. Do Yoga and exercises.

PHYSIOLOGICAL SIGNS OF STRESS
When we find ourselves in a stressful situation we often find that we:
1. Begin to breathe more rapidly. Our body is getting the ‘fight and flight’ response ready so that we can run of the fight.
2. Find our heart pumps faster to give us more blood for our fight or flight; we might get heart palpitations, chest pains or begin to feel flushed. Our heart is giving all it has to help us in our flight.
3.Our blood pressure increases to pump more blood into our body so that we can run or fight. We might get a headache or pressure in our head.
4.Feel tight, anxious, nervous and irritable. The hormone Cortisol begins to rush through our body getting us ready for flight or flight. This pushes all of to the organs and cells to ‘get ready.’

So are we going to suffer early aging and illness, which is what long-term stress can do to us? No! We can do something about it. Using tools and techniques, we can turn stress into transformation.
