100 Words: How to Make a Memory

memory wordsAdult life is often dull, repetitive and boring. Ever notice how easy it is for it all to run together?

Sometimes, a memory is forced upon us, like on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. But we can choose to make any day, any moment, memorable by using focused attention. The direct experience of what is happening now allows the brain to move from “top down” entrainment to “bottom up” which lets us see beyond “been there, done that.” (See Mindfulness & The Brain for more. )

It takes conscious choice to pay attention. Don’t let your life pass you by. Make a memory now.
