“The most important person in your life is the person right in front of you.”
- James McPartland
How do we stay present?
Our mind wanders 47% of the time, and we end up spending half our time and energy on what is not in front of us, often other people or tasks to be done.
Distraction sucks our energy and diminishes the amount we bring to the day or to the block of time we need for the day.
Have you heard of being in a flow state?
In positive psychology, being in a flow state or commonly known as being in the zone means, the person is immersed in the present in a feeling of energized focus. It is when the person is fully involved and enjoying the process of the activity.
The longer we stay present in the actual task at hand, the more likely we are to experience prolonged emotions of happiness, joy, and satisfaction.
So the next time you are in a conversation, keep in mind that the most important person in your life is the person right in front of you.
