This weekend, those on Daylight Saving Time will turn their clocks back one hour.
But no matter what “time” your clock or watch says it is, what about your head? Do you live in the present moment most of the time in your thoughts, or is your mind spinning with regrets for the past and worries about the future? Humans are unique in our ability to imagine different events and conversations that are not actually real. We can go over and over a situation that happened in our childhood as if by doing so we can somehow change things.
The reason that it is so powerful to learn how to live in the now emotionally is that the practice helps you to stay out of a habit of worry and regret. Instead, you can focus on being centered and confident about your life. You can learn to let go of mistakes or perceived failures, and learn the lessons that you can apply in the next similar circumstance.
