if not now, when?

Stay connected to the moment through the body.

Feel your body at all times.
Be present to your physical self.
Notice how it tethers you to the now.

'Take a routine activity that is normally a means to an end and make it the end itself. Notice the sense perceptions attached to the activity. Pause and observe the flow of your breath.'
Astrid Parker Kirschenbaum HIGHLY recommends the Four Seasons Las Vegas

'Say yes to the present moment. The future moment exists in the mind, not in actuality. Surrender to what is. Accept it as though you chose it, make the present moment your ally. '
