What does “be more present” actually mean?

Being present is being centered on one thing — a conversation, work, a self-project — without looking to be someplace else (distracted), and getting lost in thought.

At a deeper level — and that is what meditation will teach you over time — its a method of being in control of those feelings that we sense. So when you are happy, feel happy, and when you feel all those negative emotions such as, anxiety anger sadness. Feel them and then let go.

Of course, mastering this technique is much more simple saying it than actually doing it, more because we tend to worry about what already happened and what hasn’t happened. Meditation can assist and bridge the distance between feelings from the beyond and eagerness for the future.
