All Stressed Up and No Where to Go? Try Being Present
by Connie Merritt

Did last year turned out to be less than what you thought it would be? Did you frequently run out of time, miss an opportunity, ignore obvious warnings or found yourself stuck? If so, here's a novel idea. Clean your mental closet and put only one new idea into it: To Be Present. Treat your spring cleaning as if it is a sweepstakes. . . and you must be present to win.
  • Being Present to Win
    How can you be present when the world is screaming at you to plan, organize and work hard? First off, slow down. Are you a person who is always in a hurry, even when you've got no place to go? Stop! look at your daily schedule and prioritize what you must do. Also, search for what you can delegate and what's not so important for today. Allow plenty of time to get somewhere and then add 20% for traffic. Also, actually schedule time to goof off or hang out. Your payoff: you'll actually be more efficient and peaceful.
  • Stop doing and start being.
    Are you listening to your body? It will let you know if you're hungry, angry, tired or in need of something. There will always be enough work to fill your day so start gauging your sense of accomplishment by a different set of criterion -- such as eating nutritious and natural foods, drinking lots of water, expressing your love for family and friends, telling the truth, seeing humor and laughing more. Your payoff: more energy with an attractive composure.
  • Be around good and loving people.
    Are some people in your life a drag? Do you hang around with them because they're handy or you've got history together? Cut that out! Don't be around friends out of obligation, manipulation or habit. Make decisions to be around people based on being your highest and best self around them and their commitment to their own personal growth. Your payoff: healthy relationships that give energy, wisdom, strength and optimism.
  • Believe in time and something larger than yourself.
    My grandmother always says, "Pray to God and row toward shore." She has taught me that I am a spiritual being and that things go better and happen when prayer is involved. You can free yourself from the confinement of your unhealthy patterns and face the future, knowing that you are never alone.

  • This year will be your year.
    Here we are, nearly half way through the year. Do you still feel yourself driven to make this the best year ever? Do you still want to conquer your inertia and start succeeding? Why not try another way?
A way that doesn't involve stress, hassles and pain.

Slow down and be present.
