Nowadays, human beings are totally absorbed in their activities, responsibilities, work, family, etc. And sometimes, some forget to live.
However, living the moment to the fullest provides a deep well-being, which can then lead you to success in whatever you do.
Living in the present moment: the key to happiness
“Yesterday is behind, tomorrow is a mystery and today is a gift, that’s why we call it the present.” It might not be obvious, but this cartoon phrase, which is spoken more by a turtle, holds one of the greatest lessons of our time. In positivist thought, living in the present moment is the key to happiness.
To live in the present moment is to be here and now, in the “T” moment. It’s being focused on what’s going on around you right now, without thinking about what just happened and what will happen. Indeed, thinking about the past and the future is letting yourself be invaded by a lot of negative feelings, such as regret or sadness about your past acts or those of others, or fear or anxiety about what is going to happen. arrive. Thus, it is only by fully living the present moment that one can be happy.
The present moment and faith
Before going any further, it is worth clarifying the conflict that may exist between the concept of positivism and faith. Indeed, some religions make life after death one of the foundations of their doctrines. Does a person who is living in the present moment then lose his faith since he is no longer afraid of what may happen to him after death? To reassure on this line of idea, know that living in the present moment does not mean breaking the rules, neither of society nor of faith. On the contrary, the positivist concept advocates that these rules are already written in the subconscious of the human being, even before he decides to respect or transgress them.
On the other hand, living in the moment is not ignoring the death that will come sooner or later. It is quite possible to contemplate death while celebrating life. And it’s by living every second of our life to the fullest that we celebrate it. The typical example is that of the man who is able to admire the beauty of the funeral plaques without thinking of the fear or the sadness that they may inspire, even being aware that the name inscribed on them may be. one day his.
How to fully live the present moment?
There are a variety of techniques that allow you to fully experience the present moment. Some behaviors can even be specific to certain situations. I am only going to give you a few of these techniques so that you can use them as inspiration to find yours for each situation.
One of the requirements of this concept is to be aware of your thinking so that you can act on it if necessary. Mindfulness of our thought allows us to analyze it and say stop when the thought deviates from the right path. However, some negative thoughts can only be eliminated by taking action. When you’re afraid of being late for work, for example, sometimes all it takes is a quick phone call to the right person to avoid the anxiety. You can then start enjoying your ride again.
Acceptance of reality
Reality is what makes the present moment. Caught in a traffic jam, for example, you should not start to formulate sentences that begin with “if …”, especially if the following concerns others. Accepting reality is a big step towards happiness. Just act, like making the phone call we saw in the previous example.
The state of flow
It is especially when you are in the best possible experience that you can fully enjoy the present moment. The most common example is that of the artist who is immersed, body and soul, in his passion. It is in this state that a man is happiest. Indeed, when he is in total concentration, he has total control of his actions, he finds a good balance between the challenge and his own skills, he loses all sense of time and his thoughts are almost nonexistent. Negative feelings such as stress, anxiety and boredom are absent and give way to a feeling of deep well-being.
Moving away from routine and accepting new situations
Some people have a hard time with new things and prefer to live in a routine. And yet, if you haven’t been able to be happy so far, things should start by changing things. The relentless recourse to new projects can bring new emotions that can make you happy. A big upheaval doesn’t have to be. On the contrary, some changes can really bother you. Learn to change little by little and appreciate these small changes before you think big.
Adopting the right attitude
Fill your life with positive attitudes. For example, have optimism in everything you do. Highlight solutions and alternatives rather than dwelling on problems and obstacles. Be generous. Give more than you get. Stay away from overly negative people without being mean to them. The list can be long if I tried to list all the positive attitudes that need to be adapted. i will stop here, but it’s up to you to find the right way to remove all the negative feelings from your life.
