I first discovered this term "power of presence" when I read Eckhart Tolle’s Power of Now.
It basically means being in the moment now and not thinking too much about the past and the future, or so I think ;)
Like you, I too am trying to be more “present” in my life.
Like I tried to meditate by focusing on my breath. But it didn’t work out for me. I would always stumble and get distracted. How to meditate? lists 2 not-boring, interesting ways to meditate that finally tamed me and stilled my mind for at least some time. Innovative ways to meditate, they are.
One interesting reason I think we’re not calm and present in the moment but keep thinking about a hundred things is our relationships. I once had a wonderful conversation with my parents that made me calmer and more present for days to come. I’ve written about this conversation in Communication in Relationships. It can help you be more present of course, this article, but it can also help you rock your relationships a bit more.
