How To Live In The Moment And Stop Overthinking. Take two minutes and focus on this message to start your day! Get comfortable, drop your shoulders, take a deep breath, become fully present, close your eyes and listen.

This was me on Tuesday. Rather than sit in extreme discomfort, I drank wine. Mindfulness can be uncomfortable, like really uncomfortable. Mindfulness is not all rainbows and unicorns. It is about being fully present as this human that I am. That includes all the very real and challenging experiences we have as humans.

Last year when my dog died I made a decision to be present through it all. Present with the pain. I processed the event as it happened. I moved in and out of all I felt, thought and experienced. Even though it was extremely difficult I found that I didn’t carry the event after it was over. I was able to let go and move on. It was the healthiest death I have ever been through.

Tuesday was another story I wanted to feel lighter and numb. I was struggling to process the information I was told about a family member. I was deeply sad and grieving. I now needed to process the things I did not allow myself to at that moment. So I gave myself some time on Wednesday to do just that. I stayed present and I cried. After a few conversations and lots of introspection I felt lighter and comfort returned to me.

Life is not always easy and it’s rarely simple. We face difficult things and we don’t always want to face them head on. Mindfulness allows us to be with what is. Whatever it is. That doesn’t mean that it’s comfortable. Especially if you have been living your life hiding or if your automatics are to deny or avoid.

Always do your best is the fourth agreement from don Miguel Ruiz best selling book The Four Agreements. That came to mind on Wednesday and became my mantra for the day! I did my best on Tuesday when I hid and drank. I also did my best on Wednesday when I cried, processed and talked my way through my pain. So my message for you today is for you to just do your best beautiful, you got this!
