This is an age in which most of us live in distractions, the ‘present’ is almost lost within the anxious future and agonizing past. Our lives are increasingly fragmented, disintegrated and distracted. We spend our days at work fantasizing about a vacation, we spend our vacations worrying about work piling up, we obsess over intrusive thoughts that may or may not happen in the future, while life just slips away unobserved and unseized. We sincerely hope these live in the moment quotes can help inspire you to change your lifestyle.
Thoughts aren’t necessarily bad, but the fact that most of us have absolutely no control or awareness of these thoughts make them seem like a deafening waterfall, rightly termed as the ‘Monkey Mind’ by Buddhists, which clearly relates the vaulting mind to the jumping around, chattering and endless screeching associated with monkey’s.
Many of our new-age illnesses and lifestyles stem from this ‘Monkey Mind’, from binge-eating to deal with emotional distress or crippling anxiety and attentional deficit disorders, losing control over our thoughts can be more detrimental to life than we could ever imagine. The best solution to take back control of our thoughts is a simple practice called ‘Mindfulness’.
In neuroscience, researchers have identified this concept called ‘The Flow States’ which basically means being engrossed in something, calling it the key towards ‘Hyper-Productivity’ and even intuition. We’ve aggregated some of the best ‘live in the moment quotes’ to inspire you towards this fascinating journey towards mindfulness.
