Monday Motivation: Be Present

The philosophy of being present and living in the moment has been linked to greater happiness. I like the quote by Mother Teresa: “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” 

I've heard the idea that being present in your life is like switching from automatic to manual as you drive through your day. I like that idea. So go ahead, seize the day! Carpe diem.
