We are living our life to the fullest when we are fully present in this moment.”

As human beings, we’re prone to living in the past or anticipating the future, but rarely are we present to the only thing that’s real… NOW. Life is always happening right now, and yet most of us spend our entire lives in our heads, thinking about the past or future, which is causing us to miss out on the essence of life.

When we’re fully present, we’re calm, we transcend stress and worry, and we’re able to experience life as it is meant to be lived. I first began learning about this in my early twenties, when I first read The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, and I’ve been striving and struggling to implement it in my life ever since.

In today’s podcast, I want to talk about the power of this practice, how to share it with your family, and how to get started if you’ve never meditated before or have struggled with meditation in the past.


  • Why it’s so hard for humans to be present and in the moment.
  • How to change your mindset to be fully present.
  • What I’ve learned from practicing meditation with my kids.
  • How fear-based media creates a fear-based reality.
  • The question I ask myself when I find myself caught in my head.
