It is important to live in the moment and appreciate every moment of your life.

Here are the ways to appreciate your present.

1. Become self-aware

The first and most important thing you can do to live in the present is to become extremely self-aware. To perform your best, appreciate the beauty of your life and be happy, you need to understand who you are and what you feel.

2. Develop an attitude of gratitude

If you truly want to appreciate and enjoy your life, you must develop an attitude of gratitude.

The habit of feeling grateful and conveying that gratitude to other people. By telling “thank you” to those in your life, and yourself for all of the amazing things in your everyday life will have great effects on your personality, and your capacity to live in the present.

3. Embrace your natural state of being in life

Start to embrace your natural state of being in life. Your natural, normal, healthy state of being alive is an incredible gift and should be treated that way.

4. Meditate

Deep breathing and sitting calmly clears your mind and reduces your stress levels, which will enable you to feel happier.

5. Take a bath

Relax and appreciate the simple happiness of a warm bath. Light some fragrant candles and put on your loved music. Calm your body with this simple method. And enjoy the bath.

6. Eat with complete attention

Put away all your devices. Eat your meal by noticing all its flavors and textures. You’ll improve your digestion and feel more relaxed as a result. And eating your food without any devices and eating with your family will make you happy.

7. Hug someone or something

Hug someone, like your friend, pet, or even yourself. The soothing sense is calming and comforting.

8. Get outside and unplug

Spend some time in nature without your devices. Witness the small details of your surroundings, like the tiny yet beautiful flowers, the trees, even the small ants. You’ll feel relaxed, happy, and calm.

9. Spend time with friends

Set a weekly gathering. Go for a walk, sip some tea, or solely enjoy each others’ presence. It will support you to enjoy the moment.

10. Lighten up

Laugh at yourself once in a while. When you make an error, see the humor in your mistake. Laughing is great medicine, it enhances your mood, and it alleviates stress and anxiety.

11. Breathe deeply

Inhale deeply, and exhale fully for some time. Deep breathing puts the brakes on your thought processes, relaxes your nervous system, and brings you closer to your imagination, and helps you admire your life.

12. Forgive yourself

If you truly want to enjoy your present then you need to forgive yourself.

Forgiving yourself means letting go of all the past mistakes and appreciating every moment of the present.

13. Do something nice for yourself

Instead of forcing yourself to do something you are not interested in and ruining the present moment, enjoy the moment by doing what you truly love.

14. Congratulate others for their success

Humans tend to get upset or jealous of others’ success. But if you want to enjoy your life and your present, appreciate others as you appreciate yourself. It will give you a sense of satisfaction and happiness.
