Here is a simple way to get present when you are caught up in your thoughts & feelings (i.e worried, overwhelmed, distracted, frustrated...).
It's also a way to develop genuine confidence. Confident people are engaged people. They are present & focused on the task at hand, whether it’s having a conversation, taking photos, or running a meeting.
This mindfulness exercise is found in The Reality Slap by Russ Harris, MD. Try it five times a day when you need to pause or "hit the reset button." Kids love this one too!
