Stress is a significant part of many people’s lives

We could also call it ‘worry’.  If we’re worrying about the future, or reliving and fretting about the past, we cannot be living in the only time we have in which to live – NOW.  If we’re living in the present we can for example, fully enjoy our meal, our home, nature, being with and listening to our companions or children etc.  If we’re thinking about other things such as our work or problems when we are with others or eating a meal for example, then that’s where our energy is.  If we are going to end stress, stop worrying and live life to the full we have to find a way to be fully present.
