I will be making my posts shorter to help you read them more “in the moment”. I will add to the blog every day or two but want to make sure you do not get overwhelmed with the length of them.

I posted this challenge a year ago and even to this day I am getting comments about how much people enjoyed this post. So I thought I would put it out there again. I find using this system of tuning into the present moment is ideal for helping me to decrease my stress as I realize all I can do is what I can do in this moment. So here it is. Enjoy and let me know what you notice with doing this.
Many of us are WAY TOO BUSY to spend a lot of time on personal development but yet are desperate to find better ways to be more connected with ourselves, our children and our world. So I have developed the Moment-Is Challenge and use it myself every day.
For the next 30 days we are asking you to set aside 5 minutes each day to be “in the moment“.

Day 2 - Living in the Moment is easier for me when I am on vacation.. There are no plans, no schedules. Just being able to be with the fresh ocean air, the blue skies and the sensations that are going on in my body keeps me grounded in the present moment.
I am now asking myself, why did I commit to doing this?

There has been a lot written about the “Law of Attraction”, “The Secret”, “Power of Positive Thinking” and many others to help guide us on the road to living and thinking more positively. These books and self improvement movements are attempting to teach us that we can manifest and achieve greatness in our lives depending on our perspective and our beliefs. In order to have the life we want, we need to change how we think and feel in order to achieve what we want to attract in our lives.

The breath is the most underutilized tool available to us “in the moment”. Research shows that when we breathe deeply into the very base of our lungs that we can calm down our nervous system which is responsible for many of our stress symptoms.

Cortisol is a hormone that is secreted by our adrenal glands and is a necessary part of our waking and sleep cycles. We need it to wake us up in the morning but if we have too much cortisol, it can be a problem.

Adrenaline is a hormone that is secreted by our sympathetic nervous system in response to an event real or imagined that has us scared. People often refer to it as the fight, fright or freeze response. It is the hormone that is responsible for people having an uncanny amount of strength in scary situations e.g. lifting a car off a person to save their life etc.

I have been enjoying the writing so much and have noticed they are getting a bit too long. I have so much I want to share with you and in my enthusiasm I get a little long winded.
When my online community starts in July, I will have podcasts that expand on my blog and you can then listen to them on the run. Until them, my intention is to make the blog posts readable within 1-2 minutes.

For those of us who are parents, the idea that our kids are not finding effective ways of coping with stress is scary. When you see all of the problems with childhood obesity, anxiety, depression, eating disorders etc. there is often a fear that we are not doing enough for our kids to help them with the challenges they face.
