Life is short. Stay awake for it!
~Caribou Coffee slogan

Good morning!   What a cute and valid quote! As we go about our day-to-day business of living, we can take “staying awake” one step further. During our waking hours, we must be “awake and present” to all that life is offering. Every moment has something to offer but the moment can greet us if we are preoccupied, distracted or thinking of something else. In order to find the magic in a moment, we have to stay in the moment.
Lose yourself in the moment at hand instead of contemplating the moment to come. When you play a game with a child, don’t think about what you need to do after the game. Instead, jump into the game, absorb it, laugh, be fully present. When having a
conversation with someone, listen with your heart and mind versus thinking about what is around the corner or what will be said next. Becoming more attentive, moment to moment, is one of the quickest ways to a more joyful heart and rich life.
Your Turn:
Create a visual reminder to pull you back to the present. Every time I look at my Change Your Life Challenge bracelet, I use it as a prompt to “snap out” of my thoughts and rejoin the moment at hand.Your Affirmation:
Every day I practice being present.
