How to Live in the Moment in Maui

There is a technique I started practising one day in India a couple years ago that I would like to share.

I constantly find myself on the go, thinking of what to do next instead of really living in the moment.  Then one day in India, while I was sitting on top of a mountain, I closed my eyes and pictured myself sitting behind the desk I previously worked at typing away at a job I didn’t particularly enjoy. I was so deep in this thought that i actually felt like I was back at work with eyes glued to the monitor in front of me. Then suddenly I snapped back to reality and opened my eyes to the most amazing view below. I was so overwhelmed with joy, that I couldn’t stop smiling for the rest of the day.  Since that moment, I continued to practise this technique to really help me live in the moment not just when I travel, but every single day.

In the above video, I share my technique for living in the moment while visiting a beautiful waterfall in Maui.  I urge you to try this sometime.

    Great post Kristen! That’s the most liberating part of travel that I love: being able to free yourself from the stresses of daily life and just indulge in the beauty of the world around you. I too would pick Maui as my “getaway place” to kick back and relax.

    On a related note, when faced with imminent disaster, I like to close my eyes and wake up. Sometimes it works!
