How to Be in the moment?

Being more in the here and now, it sounds so beautiful. But how do you do that? In the daily hustle and bustle, it often falls short.

Especially in busy times, you can live on autopilot without noticing. You start the day by going through your to-do list while you are in the shower, calling a colleague on your bike to work, or thinking about what you will cook that evening during a walk in the woods. You barely feel the warm water in the shower — and your attention is everywhere, except what you do, see or eat right now. This is a shame because that automatic pilot means that you don’t even notice how beautiful the sun shines through the trees or how delicious your cottage cheese with muesli and fresh raspberries tastes.

And it is precisely those moments that bring happiness that can counterbalance stress and discomfort. By training your attention to always return to the here and now, you can occasionally step out of autopilot and notice those moments of happiness. Being in less of a hurry can also help enormously with this.


Taste. feel. Hear. See. Smell.

Live your own life, not someone else’s

Follow what gives you joy

Forget the time

Dream big, but take the first step today

Dare to make decisions from your heart
