BEING IN THE MOMENT

Posted on November 5th, 2022 01:56 PM


Imagine being in a restaurant with scrumptious food on the menu, but your mind isn’t there. The mind is drafting a reply to an email you just checked. Or your mind is on the event you hadn’t yet booked for tomorrow. The mind went drifting on your calendar schedule for work next week.

This may sound familiar to you.

A research from 2019 suggests that present-moment awareness and other mindfulness techniques can help lessen the symptoms of anxiety and melancholy. You give importance to the things that are taking place right now when you stay in the present. Sometimes you are just so caught up by things that have happened or might happen, that you let the present moments slip through your fingers.

Can you remember a time when you did nothing but immerse yourself in the flow of air, the sound of the wind, and the warmth of the sunshine?

Whether it is hearing your little one chuckle in the crib wandering her eyes around and just absorbing the moment she is in, or the plant on the window sill dancing to the wind and enjoying the present.

Seat yourself in a comfortable place and savour a moment of silence—everything is still for a moment. Or maybe take a walk outside and find yourself in a moment of joy—stepping on the yellow leaves that crunched with every step you take.

Slow down to really notice what you’re doing. Being mindful means taking your time.

With this thought in mind, we craft pieces to let you live in the moment. When we learn how to settle into the moment, we can awaken to how rich our life is now. In the present we can find the enjoyment, connection, and meaning that we have been searching for all along. Getting better at “being” can in turn enhance our experience of “doing” things as we can feel more engaged and fulfilled in the process.

Sip a hot mug of cocoa and experience a moment of mirth. Observe your surroundings and identify a moment of kindness. Look out of your window to find a moment of beauty like seeing the sunset and the colors in the sky.

Let our collection tincture these moments of your being and create moments that you cherish with family and friends.
