To-Do: Be Present

Reading time: 2 mins

I woke up this morning and my mind went straight to thinking about the things I have to do today. I had to stop and remind myself that while it’s good to plan there’s nothing wrong with being present and taking in each moment.

How many of us this morning woke up with thoughts of, ‘This morning I’ve got to…’, ‘In half an hour I’m going to…’, ‘This evening I have to…’ or ‘When I get home I’m going to…’? I know I was definitely one of them!

If we’re always thinking about what we have to do next, are we in danger of taking for granted the now? Sometimes it’s a tough feat to be present – especially when we’re taught to have a plan, a goal and to make lists.

I’ve always been one to make lists but today, I think I’ll do a little experiment. I will put the to-do list aside and see how that works out. Hopefully, I will not create a rod for my own back as a result of making this decision! I’ll let you know how things turn out!

Have a great day!
