Present. . .
Be present in mind and body.
How many times have you been on the phone while on the computer and can’t fully recall what the person on the line said? Or, you ate dinner in front of the TV and didn’t even take the time to really taste your food? Or, you grabbed a box of crackers out of the fridge while cooking dinner because you were so starving and mindlessly ate half the box? We’ve all been there in some form or another.
Take a moment to check-in with yourself to recenter.
What am I doing?
Where am I?
And make the time to ask yourself, “What am I really feeling and why?” You may find you’re wants are driven by other factors such as sleep, friend time, reading time, exercise, and a whole host of other things. You see, it’s not about the want. It’s about the void that’s being filled with in attention or other things. Remember, awareness is the answer.
