'Be here now' the mantra of the 1960's might have sounded mystical back in those hallucinogenic days…
However, if you think about it in the face of today's logic, here and in this exact moment, is the only place we can actually BE.
When we begin projecting into the future or re-constructing the past, we create an emotional traffic jam by pushing our 'vehicles' where they can not possibly be!

HOW DO YOU STAY IN THE MOMENT?
USE YOUR SENSES!
We have at least 5 recognized senses that are valuable tools for helping us stay oriented in time. Here's how:
When you start getting ahead of yourself (worrying about the future) or behind yourself (lost in the past), tune into your:
SIGHT ~ Take in the visuals - look around you. Catalog what you see.
HEARING ~ Listen to the sounds - it's a wonderful way to come back to the reality of the moment!
TOUCH ~ Reach out and touch, feel the ground under your feel, the coldness on a glass of water, your fingers on the keyboard…
SMELL ~ Sniff! What do you tune into?
TASTE ~ Can you taste the air? The inside of your mouth? Certainly whatever you put into it!
And we can add to these our KINESTHETIC sense ~ tune into movement!
Feel yourself walk, experience how your body moves through space.
And finally ~ tune into your breathing!
