Monday Meditation: Be Present

monday meditationWe all live busy days.  Mondays are a testimony to that. Most of us wonder where did the weekend go on Monday mornings. Being present allows us to appreciate the little things in life instead of worrying about the struggles of tomorrow.

Take a moment to check in with yourself and identify the moment you’re in.

You can do this by asking questions about your surroundings and your current state.

Ask yourself questions like: Where am I? What is around me? What noises do I hear? What can I physically feel around me? What do I smell? Who is around? How am I feeling? What am I grateful for right now?

Most of us are never fully present in our lives because we continually get distracted. Our focus may be on one thing for a few moments, but suddenly another thought, request, or task comes up and we’re onto the next thing.

Stop and take a moment.

Enjoy the second you are in because time is fleeting.
