Be In The Present Moment

There is a lot of talk lately about how everyone is so disconnected from the real world.  People
are distracted by computers, cell phones ipods, etc. You name it, we get distracted by it.  I think
we should all give technology a rest maybe just for a couple of hours or a day.
 I love technology just like anyone else, but sometimes feel myself getting to obsessed with it.  In the next couple of days try to focus on being in the present moment.  Just be, sit alone in a chair making sure the ringers are off on your phone and your free from distractions.
 Concentrate on your breath just recognize your breath flowing in and out of your nostrils and how it feels. Does it feel cool or warm?  If your mind tends to wander on the millions of thoughts you are having, just bring yourself back to your breath.  If you focus on just giving yourself little moments of time to be in the present you will feel much more calm and have more clarity.
Today, just start with 2 minutes.  Gradually increase the minutes each week and work yourself up to 10 minutes etc. I hope this information is helpful to you.  Everyone deserves to be happy and free from daily stress.  Let me know how being present is helping you in your life. 
Take care :)
