Introduction to Being Present

Welcome to the practice of being “here and now,” a fundamental aspect of mindfulness that focuses on living in the present moment without judgment. This worksheet will guide you through exercises designed to help you cultivate presence, allowing you to experience life more fully, reduce stress, and connect with your inner self.

Benefits of Being Present

  • Reduces Stress and Anxiety: By focusing on the current moment, you can alleviate worries about the past or future.
  • Enhances Joy: Being present allows you to appreciate and savor life’s pleasures more fully.
  • Improves Concentration: Mindfulness increases your ability to focus, enhancing productivity and clarity.
  • Fosters Emotional Balance: Engaging in the present moment helps regulate emotions and respond more effectively to challenges.

Mindfulness Exercises to Be Here and Now

1. Mindful Breathing

Purpose: To anchor you in the present moment through the observation of your breath.

How to Do It:

  • Sit or stand in a comfortable position, gently close your eyes, and bring your attention to your breath.
  • Notice the sensation of the air entering and leaving your nostrils or the rise and fall of your chest and abdomen.
  • When your mind wanders, acknowledge the thoughts and gently redirect your focus back to your breath.
  • Practice this for 3-5 minutes, gradually increasing the duration as you become more comfortable.

2. Sensory Awareness

Purpose: To connect with the present by engaging your senses.

How to Do It:

  • Take a moment to notice five things you can see, four things you can touch, three things you can hear, two things you can smell, and one thing you can taste.
  • Engage with each sense deeply, observing without judgment or analysis.
  • Use this exercise to ground yourself, especially when you feel overwhelmed or disconnected.

3. Single-Tasking

Purpose: To cultivate presence by focusing on one task at a time.

How to Do It:

  • Choose an activity you’d normally do on autopilot, like eating, walking, or cleaning.
  • Focus all your attention on this task, noticing every detail and aspect of the experience.
  • If your mind wanders, gently bring it back to the task at hand, practicing patience and compassion with yourself.

4. Mindful Pause

Purpose: To create brief moments of presence throughout your day.

How to Do It:

  • Set a timer or reminder for various times during your day.
  • When it goes off, pause whatever you’re doing, take a deep breath, and observe your surroundings and inner experiences.
  • Use this pause to connect with the present, even if only for a few seconds.

5. Nature Connection

Purpose: To enhance presence by connecting with the natural world.

How to Do It:

  • Spend time outside, whether it’s a park, garden, or your backyard.
  • Observe the natural elements around you—the sky, plants, animals, the feel of the wind or sun on your skin.
  • Engage with nature mindfully, noticing its beauty and the sensations it evokes within you.

Integrating Mindfulness into Daily Life

  • Morning Intentions: Start your day by setting an intention to be present, reminding yourself of this goal when you wake up.
  • Mindful Eating: Turn meals into an opportunity to practice being present by eating slowly and savoring each bite.
  • Active Listening: When conversing with others, focus fully on listening, being present with their words and your responses.
  • Evening Reflection: End your day by reflecting on moments when you were present and acknowledging times when it was challenging.


Practicing mindfulness to be here and now is a rewarding journey that enhances your connection to life’s experiences, enriches your relationships, and fosters a sense of inner peace. Remember, being present is a skill that deepens with practice, so approach each exercise with patience and curiosity. Embrace the moments of presence you cultivate, and observe how they influence your perception of yourself and the world around you.
