How to live life; lovingly, mindfully and completely in the present, is something that people seem to find very difficult if not impossible do. We live in an age where everything is geared towards the future. Planning for the future, worrying about the future, and saving for the future.

Living your life constantly looking over the horizon or worrying about what is around the corner, is detrimental for our mental health. So many of us spend our time thinking so much about tomorrow; that we do not enjoy or appreciate today!
What does living mindfully mean? Mindfulness is a practice taken largely from Buddhism but anyone, with any belief system, can enjoy the benefits of mindfulness. Mindfulness is the practice of becoming more aware of the present moment, rather than dwelling in the past or projecting into the future.
