Online Magic Tip #7: How to Not to Get Carried Away

Do you get into trouble when you get carried away by your interests, your passions, your hobbies, or your weaknesses? Whether "getting carried away" means that you spend too much money, waste too much time, or otherwise do something that doesn't help you reach your goals, getting carried away unintentionally is often not a happy event.

Luckily, there is a simple magical way that you can keep your attention focused on the present moment ... and your present goals. Online magic tip#7 is this: as long as you can maintain attention on a physical sensation in your body, you will stay present. Staying present helps you remember you goals, not to mention preventing you from worrying about the future or stressing about the past.

To stay present, simply pick an area of the body on which you will feel sensation. For instance, you could focus on feeling sensation on your left forearm. Then every time you walk through a doorway, renew your focus on your left forearm. The doorways bring your attention back repeatedly to sensation, helping you stay present in the moment. If you tend to remain at a desk most of the day, pick a different "event" to bring you back. You can even set a timer or alarm on your phone as reminder.

Try it ... you will be surprised at how this simple online magic tip will help you stay in the moment ... which is a "present" you can always give yourself!
