Coming Into 'The 'Now'; How To Calm and Clear Your Mind For More Focus

 "Drink your tea slowly and reverently, 
as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves...
 
...slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future... 



 ...Live the actual moment. Only this moment is life."
~Thich Nhat Hanh


"Coming into The Now". 

A phrase of 'mindful' thinking and awareness.
 I hope you will consider this and remember to do it often.
This mindful excercise is especially helpful 
when you are stressed, or when planning a project. 

It centers, calms and clears your mind. 
It reduces stress reactions in the body, 
and makes your activities more pleasant and joy-filled.
