Don’t run from now

Thinking about future problems and events that you have concocted in your mind is the same as having a conversation while looking at your phone. It is the same as texting and driving. Your body becomes a meat suit, and your mind is wandering around in another dimension.

Mute the inner dialogue of worry and get back into your body.

Cultivate the urge to be at the moment and be comfortable in the space of the now. Obsessing over the future or the past are just escape routes for your ego because you don’t want to be where you are right now. It’s like any other drug.

What’s wrong with the now? Next time you find yourself riled up over things you can’t control, ask yourself why. The answer to why is the first step to slaying the beast.
