What do you see each morning as you awaken and begin to move around and start your day? More importantly, how do you feel upon awakening to a new day?
Some people hop out of bed with a spring in their step whilst others roll over and bury their head beneath their covers. A few people stretch like a cat and luxuriate in their waking up process. A lot can be inferred from this type of behavior about your attitude towards your day and towards life in general.
When autumn comes do you notice all the shades of red, terracotta, orange and gold in the trees, hedgerows and pathways? Or does autumn pass you by virtually unnoticed? Life is rich in so many aspects, but sadly many people do not notice much of the beauty that surrounds them.
Why is this? Some people would say that they are too busy and pressed for time to waste their energy upon the mundane. They do not see a purpose in noticing the scenery and such like. Others are too anxious or tense to really notice their surroundings. A few people prioritize the richness of nature and detail in their lives.
We do all have a choice in how we live our lives and the priorities that we pursue. Despite this the majority of people feel as if they have found their way onto a treadmill from which they cannot get off. What most people will agree upon though is that when you do take the time to look around and really see the beauty of nature you feel a sense of peace and calm.
To take time to live in the now and really notice the moment instead of focusing your attention in either the past or the future does inevitably instill a sense of calm and relaxation. There is no fear in the now. There is no regret in the now. There is just what is happening right now, what you can see and feel right now.
In contrast, when you spend your time focusing in either the past or the present you miss out on the true richness that surrounds you. You don't see all of the beauty, the colors, the minutiae of detail. When you do not focus clearly in the now, you do not see clearly and so things become lackluster, fuzzy and dull in comparison to how they really are.
If life appears this way to you then it is a worthwhile exercise to stop for a moment, to press your pause button and look around you to see what is really there. Take each of your senses in turn and really focus upon each one and notice how much more of life’s richness you perceive.
Hypnosis is also something that you might like to consider when you want to take a step back and appreciate the moment. Hypnosis is a state of relaxation. It is natural and easy to use simply by listening to a hypnosis mp3 download. Hypnosis also allows access to your subconscious mind that is the part where automatic and instinctive thoughts are stored. Therefore with hypnosis you can change such thoughts and instinctive reactions.
