Yes, focusing on the present moment can improve your wellbeing and overall happiness – but if done correctly, so can thinking about the future.
Helps You Make Better Decisions
Thinking about tomorrow can help you decide what to do today.
We all have our own set of long-term goals.
Let’s say, you’d love to have enough money saved for a downpayment in 5 years. By keeping that vision in mind, you can start prioritizing your spending habits today instead of tomorrow.
Acts as Motivation
A goal usually starts out as nothing more than a fantasy, which can be very motivating.
Daydreams can inspire you to turn those thoughts into reality.
Are you familiar with the “three good things” exercise? It’s easy.
All you have to do is write down 3 good things you would like to happen tomorrow.
Once you have that list, you can start taking action to make those dreams come true.
