Mindfulness. Presence. Being. How can these precious things be attained? These are 9 tips that you can practice every day to be more present.

1. Be appreciative: In order to appreciate something, you must be present.

2. Let go of worry: Why worry about the future when you don't yet have the power to change it?

3. Don't dwell on the past: Ruminating on the past will keep you from appreciating the present moment.

4. Practice rituals: Yoga, meditation, intention setting - commit to your rituals, whatever they may be, and you'll see a direct correlation to your mindfulness and presence.

6. Be optimistic: Smile! Do a good deed! See the glass half-full! If all you have is this moment, make it the best one it can be.

7. Practice minimalism: Let go of the excess in order to truly appreciate what you have.

8. Listen: Listening to yourself and others is one of the greatest forms of being mindful and exercising complete presence.

9. Focus on your breath: When you've lost your way, return to your breath, and you'll return to yourself.
