Let’s be honest here, being present in the moment sounds good in theory … but in practice, we suck at it 99.9% of the time.

How many times have you found yourself making all these fancy mental plans of “being as present as you possibly can” and imagining yourself as a Zen-master-to-be or advanced yogi in the making … and then a few minutes later you’re crunching down a packet of Doritos and staring vacantly at the Instagram stream on your phone?

Can you relate to this frustrating phenomenon?

It seems like everywhere we look in the realm of wellness, self-help, and spirituality, being present is glorified as the highest of virtues. And I have nothing against that because it’s true. Being present is really the only sane way to live life.

But there’s one sticky issue that I’ll cover in this article, along with some down-to-earth advice for how to be more present each day.

What Does ‘Being Present’ Mean?

Being present simply means inhabiting this moment without getting lost in thoughts about the past or the future. When we’re being present, we’re vividly awake and conscious of what is going on in the here-now.
