1. Let your heart capture the moment, not your cell phone: Fully receive and experience with your ears, eyes, heart, and mind. Risk it – turn off your phone every now and then and just live the moment!

2. Get beyond yourself: Look, be attentive and delight in the people and events around you. See the bigger picture. Don’t miss the moments.

3. Live in the present moment: Relax. Be present. Don’t bring work and other activities into time with your loved ones. 

4. Be receptive: Get up early, when it is still dark, go outside and watch the sunrise. Listen to the birds sing. Open your heart to receive and be nourished by the beauty.
