Now is Now – Really, it is
When I say Now is Now, I’m trying to remind you to focus on the moment you are in, instead of your worries about tomorrow or yesterday. #NowIsNow #DearMishu #Mindfulness
The Inside Story
Even if you’re under a lot of stress, and have a lot of worries. If you stop for a minute and just exist in the moment you are in, you can find relief from that stress. Look at the sunset. Breathe and appreciate that you can. Look at your dog, your child, your friend. Pay attention to how lucky you are to have food to eat, or clean water.
Now is Now – it doesn’t mean you always have to be happy
That doesn’t mean that you have to be happy and calm all the time, just because you might have it good compared to some people in this world. There are always people who have it worse. Sure, it can be helpful to remind yourself of that when you’re getting upset about small things. But there are also probably people who have it better.
Now is Now doesn’t mean discounting your feelings of worry. All it means is:

True, they might happen later. Or they might have already happened.
But right now they are not happening. Let me repeat: Right now, all the things that you’re worried about are not happening.
So just be in the now for a couple minutes. It’s a good place to be.Btw, subscribe to Dear Mishu's newsletter: 💌 Mishu a question
