Joan's tips for being present:
As usual, I struggle with staying in the now. My go to is to get outside with my dog. Watching her keeps me present and I realize how blessed I am to have this wonderful creature as my friend. If you don't have a pet, maybe you can "borrow" one!
The second thing I do to stay present is to watch the sunset or sunrise. If you can't watch a real one, watch one on the net. There are a lot of youtube videos, like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbaJ1SPjLnc
