I run farther in one day then most people will all year. Most of my runs happen while most people are watching tv. Get out and become active.
We cannot fully live if we are not present to each moment. I find being present and aware of each moment to be wicked hard. The best I can do is meditated everyday for 20 minutes. I have been doing this for over 3 years and my mind still wanders all the time. This is one form of meditation, there exist countless others. Experiment and see if or what works for you
