Living in the moment.
It sounds so easy. Especially when a celebrity or pro athlete casually mentions it on TV.
You just live in the moment. You just be. You’re just present.
Sounds simple enough.
But how do you know if you’re actually present? I mean, you’re here right now, right? So that should mean you’re present. But everything doesn’t seem perfect, so doesn’t that mean you’re not present?
It can be frustrating and confusing to figure it out, which is why you could probably use some signals to clue you in. But before we get to those, why is it so damn difficult to tell whether you’re living in the moment?
What is meditation? This is a question that's been asked thousands of times. And for good reason. From breathing to transcendental to zazen, there are a mind-boggling amount of meditations types out there. For the newcomer, this can not only be confusing, but probably leaves you wondering, “What possibly could all these meditation styles have in common?”
