Our senses can help bring us into the present moment.
When you suddenly stop and become aware of what you can hear, what you can see, what you can feel, you suddenly notice there is a lot of activity occurring in this present moment.
What can also help is to bring our mind to what our hands are doing. If we are washing the dishes, how does the water feel? What do the bubbles look like? Our senses help focus our mind on the present moment. And of course, absorbing ourselves in the activity can also be useful. At the same time, we don’t want to forget about pacing.
