Practice these three helpful tips for staying present!


Your Presence is Required

Glorious Living with Macarena Luz Bianchi
Dear Florist,
Are you present? Of course, you are! At this moment reading these words, you are because being present is a moment to moment phenomenon. How much of the time do you spend being present? More importantly, do you understand what being present provides?
Being present is Glorious Living, and the allowing of your wonder, wellness, and wisdom to support, guide, and express through you. When you are present, you operate from your Glorious essence, the zone where the magic of personal empowered awareness and holistic expression happen.
To practice being present, you can:
• Choose it. Decide to be present. When you find yourself in your head instead of the conversation or too fixated on the past, correct and continue by taking a deep breath while visualizing the healing and loving life force flowing down to your hands and feet. Tapping your heart is also a useful technique, which can be subtle or a conversation starter: it is up to you.
• Join a sport. Athletics can be therapeutic. To be effective in games, sports, and to play well, you must be present. Martial Arts is significant because nothing brings you back to the present moment like getting hit in the face or actively avoiding getting hurt.
• Adopt a pet. Puppies are especially useful for pulling focus and being a vehicle to share and receive unconditional love. They can melt even the most hardened hearts and are an organic way to build community by meeting your neighbors.
Your presence is required to get the most out of your life, and you deserve to enjoy all the goodness life has to offer!
Be glorious & live well!
