“Right now is a "choice point," a space in time when you can choose to pay attention to your intention and get in touch with the sincerity of your heart and mind.” Elisha Goldstein
Elisha Goldstein is one of my favorite authors about present moment awareness and being mindful. He has a great book called The Now Effect that talks about living in the present moment and includes brain research. He also has a weekly newsletter I learn from that can be found at http://elishagoldstein.com/books/the-now-effect/.
Awareness is the key to living in the present moment and being clear on your intentions is crucial. Elisha has created a simple practice that I use to help me get centered and focuses my attention on my intentions. It is a simple practice called STOP.
I recommend trying this practice several times a day for a week and see if you find yourself becoming more mindful and focused on your intentions.
How has the STOP practice impacted you and your mindfulness?
Have you changed what you are putting your attention on based on the STOP practice?
