Top 5 Fascinating Benefits of Living in the Present Moment

Last Updated on April 8, 2021 by The Unbounded Thinker

Recently, I realized that the best way to live a happy and peaceful life is by practicing to focus on the present moment.

It’s difficult to focus on the present moment because the modern world has conditioned your mind to constantly think about the past and the future. However, if you manage to regularly focus all your attention on the present moment, you’ll be untouchable because of the following reasons.

  1. You’ll Live a Stress-Free Life

When you continuously lose yourself in the present moment you’ll be stress-free. You’ll worry about nothing since most of your worries exist in the future. You’ll stop being concerned with what might or might not happen, and you’ll mostly focus on how you can use the present moment to make things work in your favor. Besides this, you’ll be less stressed because you’ll stop reviewing stressful events that occurred in the past.

  1. You’ll Make Good Decisions

There’s a high chance of making poor decisions if you are focused on the past or the future because you’ll make decisions based on a reality that doesn’t exist. The only reality that exists is the present moment, and making decisions based on this reality ensures that you make good decisions.

Besides this, being in the present moment enables you to make good decisions because you see things clearly.

  1. You’ll be More Connected to Infinite Intelligence

Being present most of the time enables you to connect with Infinite Intelligence/God/The Creator because this intelligence lives in the present moment. The Creator has never lived in the past or the future. The past and the future only exist in your mind.

Anyway, you’ll receive guidance when you establish this connection with Infinite Intelligence, and you’ll also gain access to all the information you need to fulfill your destiny.

  1. You’ll Awaken Your Intuition

Intuition is the ability to know what you are supposed to do without reasoning. Or as Mateo Sol puts it, “it’s a voice of wisdom that arises within your being, that is your potential, your inner guide.” 

According to Penney Peirce, a gifted intuitive counselor, you awaken your intuition when you regularly focus your attention on the present moment. Penny Pierce believes being in the present moment enables your body, mind, and spirit to become one, thus awakening your intuitive abilities.

  1. All Opportunities exist in the Present Moment

Opportunities often present themselves to us every day, but we can’t see them because our minds are either in the past or future. For us to see these opportunities, we must be in the present moment because the mind becomes alert to everything that happens when our attention is in the now.


Living in the present moment is extremely beneficial because it provides you with the above advantages, and many others that you can mention in the comment box below. However, any skill with several advantages is usually difficult to master, and for this reason, living in the moment is also difficult. The good thing is that with discipline and persistence, you can master anything.
