we can miss the good stuff that comes along because we get preoccupied with past and the future moments rather than paying attention to what is happening in the moment.
the yoga lesson: take time each day to acknowledge what you are experiencing. instead of counting sheep to prepare you for sleep, think of the things you are most grateful for that happened in your day. you might be surprise that even a crumby day has it great moments. for some reason the number 5 resonates with me when i practice this form of mindful wind-down at the end of my day, but you can shoot for whatever number works for you!
