    If only we could go back in time hey…or maybe not!

    It’s funny how we can look back at something and wish we were that age again (generally 30-plus somethings in this case), or in that moment again, and most likely if we had our time again, we would want to ‘just enjoy life more’, whether we had or had not enjoyed it before.

    We generally just want to be happy and want our loved ones to be happy, yet we spend so many of our waking hours caught up in the day-to-day grind of ‘life’ that we forget that happiness is enjoying the small things, the moments.

    We can wish we were just entering our twenties again, with years of freedom and relatively little pressures forced on us by society, but we don’t need to be young again to actually enjoy the moments. Anyone, at any age, can try to just enjoy a moment, being mindful about what you are doing at the time, and to choosing to make that moment as good as you possibly can.

    None of us can live in the past or the future, only now, right now. Yet we often set our minds to the future goals and past experiences, and while it is good to have goals to strive towards and while we can learn from experiences, we can only ever live in the exact moment we are in.

    So what can I do right now then to get in the moment?

    One hour ago is now history. What did you do? Was it just another uneventful moment, can you even remember? Most of our life is littered with uneventful moments, because we tend to get so withdrawn into the urgent matters, whether they are actually worth doing or not. When acting on the urgent we lose that moment.

    So, for the next ten minutes, just try to be in the moment. Take your mind away from what you think you ‘need’ to do, and instead just give yourself time to focus on something that matters to you.

    Call a friend you haven’t spoken to in ages. Look over notes on a project you really wanted to do but never did. Go for a run. Just do something that makes you aware of being in that moment, and enjoying it the best you can.

    Then, strive to create more moments like this. It’s not easy to just be in the moment all the time, we all get busy and distracted by life, but some manage to be a lot more mindful than others simply because they are consciously making an effort to. If you do the same you will find you have more times in it than before.

    So how do I get into this state more often?

    You can use a trigger, such as a unique alarm sound that you set to twice a day (or whatever suits), and then associate this alarm sound with ‘moment time’.

    This works so long as you consciously allow yourself to let the trigger send you into a focused state when the alarm sounds. You can also write down what you did after each moment episode, as this can also serve to trigger positive states when you read them back.
