Live in the moment

The past is full of regret, the future is full of forboding, so sometimes it's best to hang out in the present moment. Give yourself permission, say 'I am only interested in right now.' Have a look, see what's going on. The birds are singing, the cat is grooming its belly, the sky is blue, the body is breathing, the computer is humming, and there's a whole pile of moments cascading one into the next. Problems are somehow somewhere else.

Go the whole Buddhist hog. When you are sitting, just sit. When you are walking, just walk. When you are breathing, just breathe. Sounds easy? Erm, give it a go.
