"Determined to keep my thoughts in the present while on a long drive, I had several RHRN items in my car all to bump me back to the present if I caught my mind wondering. It worked! Instead of ruminating about things that aren’t going well in my life, any time I saw the symbol, I found myself noticing the landscape, sensations in my body, and really listened to the music that was playing on the radio. I also arrived at my destination feeling relaxed and ready to work."
"WE WERE LOST! - The thought of mountain lions and the approaching darkness became very scary. The whole time I kept rubbing my Right Here Right Now band. I kept saying to myself "just keep walking nothing else matters not yesterday not tomorrow, right here right now is all that matters". It was such a relief to see the trail head sign in the pitch black at 9:15pm and to know that focusing on the right here right now is probably what got us through."
"I’ve taken up wearing my RHRN bracelet when I climb. When I began climbing a year ago I was terrified of heights and I still get nervous and shaky at times. I love being able to look at my RHRN wrist band when my hands are in front of me on the rock and remind myself that I am fine. It’s what I need to recenter my mind so I can continue on. A great little, simple way to bringmyself back from worrying about what could be to what’s happening in the present."
I have lived the RHRN philosophy for the past year. I haven’t practiced it because it doesn’t take practice. I decided to live it, and I have, it’s that easy.
For me it’s not about zoning out, but zoning in, When I’m hiking, my wrist band reminds me to look around and enjoy each moment. When I’m driving, my rear mirror charm reminds me to slow down, and take part in the journey. And when I’m working and feeling overwhelmed, I look down and read “Right Here Right Now” and I know I’ll get through it, one file at a time.
RHRN has taught me to experience life instead of just living it.
