There are so many demands on our attention, time and energy. One of the most important lessons I have learned is how critical it is to “Be Present in the Moment.”

Taking three deep slow intentional breaths can create the moment, anywhere, anytime. It is not always possible to remove all distractions in your immediate surroundings, however, you can always pull into yourself briefly.

The constant presence of our cell phones can seem to be an indispensable distraction, and they can also be vital for safety. BUT do you know when to turn off your phone or put it on silence or do not disturb or airplane mode even briefly? Those are also vital functions of your phone. You have full control of your attention, when you tune into your immediate personal experience grounded in your breath.

You can create a quiet moment, anywhere , anytime. You may not always be comfortable creating time and space for yourself, but it is quite refreshing and rejuvenating. It can help you refocus and may serve to calm stress of which you may be unaware. It is the 3 focused breaths that are also essential to making space in the present moment.

Present moment being does not require anymore than 3 conscious breaths to refresh your attention and thoughts. In a flash, you will hold the control of your being. The opportunity to encourage and take care of yourself. To be present for others, we must first be present to ourselves. You Deserve it!
