What Is Your Default Mode?

Do you spend much time focusing on the past or the future? We know that the ideal is to live in the present moment. However, many of us find it a challenge to do so consistently. What is your default time frame? If you tend to dwell on past actions or tend to think about things that have happened in the past, then the past is probably your default time frame. On the other hand, if you are worrying or constantly planning, looking ahead and focusing on what you have to do next, then you are probably future oriented.
Recognising your default mode is the first step to peace of mind. The next step is to resolve to remain as often as possible in the present moment. It takes practice, lots of practice! Savour each moment by allowing your attention to linger on every task, no matter how small or simple. Make your mindful practice a habit and live your life consciously with purpose. Don’t fall into the trap of multi-tasking, just do one thing at a time. You will soon find that you are more productive, happier and fulfilled when you are living in the present moment. Be Mindful… Pause… Connect!
