Savour the present
Learning to appreciate what's going on around us can reveal beautiful and interesting things we never knew were there. This can help lift our mood and keep us in good spirits.
Here are few things you can do to help bring yourself into the moment:
- Look - describe to yourself what you see, concentrate on colours and textures, let your eyes linger over each detail
- Close your eyes and listen - how many different sounds can you hear?
- Close your eyes and touch - run your hand over a nearby object - how does it feel?
- Sniff the air - what can you smell?
