What is the best way to "live in the now"?


I often hear about this as a means of de-stressing and improving the quality of one's life, but I often find it hard to do. My OCD and Generalized Anxiety Disorder don't help either. If you are able to, what's your secret?

    I'm not good at visualization either. I know there are different types of meditation, but it's hard for me to slow down my thoughts and especially hard to try and visualize. I'll try thinking of black like you suggest. Thanks!

    Wow! I thought it was only 10,000/day. Do you have a source on the higher figure? I'm down to about 300/day, and reducing. You write like you've read Thich Nhat Hanh. Have you? Wonderful friend and teacher.

    Thank you, Good Guy. I'll definitely have a look at your page. Indeed, my mind is a constant stream of thoughts and I find it hard to train my brain. Mindfulness is something I would like to get more in touch with.

    Thank you, Lor's Stories. I know it on paper, but in practice I find it difficult to always stay in the current moment.
