Living in the moment: Habit learned from dogs

I fell in love with dogs about six years into my recovery, and I’ve never been the same since.

The more I loved them, the more I learned from them. One of the greatest lessons my dogs continue to teach me is how to live in the moment.

Check out how this works in this week’s Rynski 3-Minute Share vlog.

Living in the moment is total bliss.

But it can be tough to remember to do it.

  • Sometimes when we realize we’re living in the moment, the feeling immediately disappears.
  • Other times we may only remember to live in the moment during excruciating moments – like when we’re getting our teeth drilled.

But there’s a really cool way to remember to live in the moment every moment of every day:

Just look at your dogs.

  • If you don’t have dogs, feel free to look at mine.
    • Just search “gargulinski dogs” and check out the images.
    • You’ll find tons of them.
  • Dogs live in the moment, no matter what they’re doing.
  • You NEVER find them fretting about yesterday or worrying about tomorrow.

Dogs have living in the moment down to a science.

  • When they’re catching and eating flies in the yard
    • Dogs don’t tell themselves “Oh! I better not eat that. I might get sick”
    • Or remind themselves how they missed five flies yesterday so they might as well give it up
  • When they’re napping
    • Dogs don’t lie there worrying about tomorrow’s vet appointment
    • Or how they really disliked this morning’s breakfast of lamb stew with peas
  • When they’re romping in the ocean in San Diego
    • Dogs don’t start reviewing statistics on shark attacks over the past 10 years
    • Or get anxiety about those muddy footprints they’ll soon be tracking into the house

Nope. None of that yesterday-tomorrow worries for dogs.

  • Dogs are totally focused, immersed, energized and alive in the moment that surrounds them.
    • This exact moment in time where EVERYTHING is a A-OK.
    • That’s the moment we want to be in.
    • That’s the moment of NOW.
