The Benefits of Living in the Moment

“Journeying into the Present: My Experience with Mindfulness” — In his talk, Drew Schott will explore living in the moment as a concept, ways in which individuals can achieve it, examples of living in the moment, and why it is important to be present. Drawing on his personal experience, Drew will explain how living in the moment has changed the way he sees his surrounding environment and how it has shaped the way that he goes about living. As he has developed in his mindfulness, Drew says, he has not only become more peaceful, but has also found ways to slow down and be able to appreciate the current moment, no matter how stressful the situation. Personal anecdotes, along with examples of mindfulness in our society, in addition to the research of experts on living in the moment, will be interwoven into his talk.
