When you live in the moment you lose awareness with what might happen in the future and only focus on whats currently happening. By doing this you can’t have anxiety its impossible. Same thing applies to your stress. When you truly live in the moment you won’t be thinking of things that are going to happen. This keeps you stress level at a minimum.
Life is short and there isn’t any good reason for wasting even 1 second of time. Think about all of the time worrying about something that might happen. If you have done everything you can let it go.

Switch focus from touch to smell and try your hardest to keep your mind clear. Whatever you do when practicing living in the moment try to stay away from thinking in the past or worrying about the future.When you live in the past or worry about the future you are doing yourself an injustice. You are only causing yourself more problems and not helping to fix anything. The past is done and over with. Learn your lesson and move on. As far as the future is concerned there is some planning that needs to be done, but for the most part think of it once make your decision and move on. Constant worrying about something you have done your best at or is out of your control won’t make anything better. It will only make your life more miserable.
Find things that really suck you in to keep yourself distracted while starting out. Either pick up a hobby or do an activity where you lose time when you do. Once you start keep going and stay busy. When your done with one activity immediately start another one. Don’t rush through things just to get done slow down and enjoy it. An example would be like a good book. Don’t read it all in one night then you have nothing else to read later. Slow down your reading and enjoy your book. Make it last you for several nights and possibly even read it a second time.
Live your life, don’t just be a drone trying to make it from one day to the next. Start out small and work your way up. You can do this with a little patience and perseverance.
