Do you ever catch yourself getting lost in moments that happened weeks, months or even years ago?
Maybe you can’t stop thinking about that job opportunity you turned down…
Or maybe you wish you shared more in-depth feedback during that last meeting…
If we aren’t careful, it’s so easy to get lost in those “should have”, “would have” thoughts.
Now, our past does play an important role in both our future and present.
Every single event, both positive and negative, can teach us so many things. The only thing is, when we spend so much time thinking about the past, we can forget to focus on the present.
These tips can help you live in the moment and appreciate every day.
Do you ever catch your mind wondering while doing day-to-day activities such as cooking or cleaning?
If you answered yes, you are not the only one. In fact, it happens to us too!
Now, we all have household chores we don’t love doing, and that’s completely okay.
But there are plenty of ways you can make those household chores more fun. As time goes on, you may even look forward to them.
It’s all about implementing little things you already love into the activity.
You can play your favorite song on full blast in the background or chat with your best friend on speakerphone.
Add Spontaneity to Your Routine
Ever notice how you always take the same route to work?
Or how you always gravitate towards that blue mug in your cabinet?
When we do the same thing for so long, we often do it without even thinking about it. It’s basically like living on autopilot.
Adding a little spontaneity here and there can encourage creative thinking, boost productivity and help us get out of our own head.
Take a brand new route to work, visit a new grocery store, or read a book by an author you’ve never heard of.
Try it out and see how it goes.
“When you’ve had a life of overthinking, you have the same reaction time and time again.” – Joel Annesley
