The Present Moment: An Exercise

When feeling "flighty," ungrounded, and disconnected from your body, try this*:

Write down the answers to these questions right now:
What do I hear?
What do I smell?
What do I taste, or remember tasting right now?
What are the sensations on my skin?
What do I see?

What does all of this make you remember? think about? wish for?

Write two pages (at least) based on being in the moment are in in
right now. What do you discover?

*This exercise is taken from Beth Baruch Joselow's book Writing Without the Muse.
