In this extract, we shall have a look at the obstacles that might prevent us from being blissfully present.

1. Critically judging ourselves

In the pursuit of becoming that so-called “perfect” version set by the media standards, it’s important to understand that we are amazing, unique and great the way we are.

Critical judgment and being harsh on oneself is one of the biggest obstacles that could come our way from being fully present in the present. So stop doing it.

2. Overthinking

When we overthink, we tend to run away from the present circumstances thinking that we aren’t good enough at doing or achieving something. It unknowingly becomes an obstacle in our way towards living our present fully, so avoid it.

3. Stuck in the past and thinking overtly about the future

It’s important to move on from the past, to accept the past and bid goodbye to it. When we think about the past we tend to fear and face our present thinking about, “what if we got to face the same scary circumstances as we did in our past?”.
