July Newsletter


A few weeks ago, I was on Facebook, and my whole feed was filled with my relatives and friends, along with celebrities going to the Maldives, to weddings, to parties, to Quebec, and eating at cute restaurants. Their scenic and fun-filled photos made me quite sad, realizing that I was just at home.


But then I took a moment to bring my mind back to the present using a 4-step strategy I teach my clients. That is: Take 3 deep breaths, answer my thoughts, make a gratitude list, and focus on the solution to my concerns.

Doing this helped me appreciate the moment I was living in and find satisfaction in it, resulting in me feeling internally happy.


And that is one of the main reasons why living in the present is so important. It leaves no room for you to remorse the past or continuously plans what you must do or want to do in the future. Allowing you to be content as you experience life as it comes your way and enjoying those moments for what they are.


Along with this, there are other reasons why living in the present moment can help you achieve happiness, peace, and joy, which are all key to better mental wellbeing.
