Presence Improves Mood

Being present is basically being aware of what is going on arund you and the feelings in your body. It is the opposite of being "in your head". For example, if you're speaking to someone you're attnetion is on them, how they make you feel, how they're feeling, what they're saying, how they look, the environment around you, etc. Your attention is not on worrying about what they think of you, or worrying about what to say next, or worrying about screwing up, etc.

When you're present you're in the moment. You're not thinking about your past or worrying about your future. You're bringing yourself fully to every interaction, every decision and every situation. You're being honest with yourself about what you want and who you are.

As you learn to be more present your mood should imrpove. You'll find that you're enjoying your interactions more with people, you're being genuine more, and you'll notice that people will appreciate when your attention is on them.

If you're a man you can learn more about presence and how to cultivate it at the Authentic Man Program. If you're a woman you can learn more at The Authentic Woman Experience. These programs are designed to improve dating and relationships, but they will also improve every aspect of your life.
