The Art of Now

We live in an age of distraction. The future depends on our ability to pay attention to the present.

Sometimes we all need to take a step back and enjoy what is in front of us. It is easy to let social media, mobile phones and various other devices take control of our lives.

It seems like on a day to day basis, I see people glued to their mobile phones when they could be interacting with other humans. We need to take back control of our minds and stop compulsively checking our emails, Facebook updates, and text messages. How many friendships are lost because of lack of communication? How many moments are missed when you are updating your status? 

Living in the moment means giving your full attention to the present. Observe your thoughts, surroundings and your current situation. Avoid worrying about the future, focus on the present. Instead of letting your life go by without living it, let go of the objects, people or whatever is holding you back and allow yourself to fully experience the wonderful things that life has to offer.
