NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - Aug. 25, 2016 - PRLog -- Our professionals at Akua Mind & Body have seen many addicts come through the doors who are buried in either an irredeemable past or an unknown future. Every person has regrets and none of us can know our futures; all we have is what is happening right now. So, how do we use that to further a sobriety that is lasting and secure? The practice of mindfulness is being able to live in the present moment and awaken to that experience. Being present can be difficult because it is a process that is not often valued in Western culture. We are taught from the time we are young to reach for our future and use the past as a motivator to help create a better future. But peoplefail in this when the present is completely forgotten, even though it is the most important part of the equation. We don't live in the past or the future, we only live in this moment. So, using the here and now, every single moment of the day, actually does create a better future. For addicts, that focus can lead to a sober life.
