If you keep your attention in the body as much as possible, you will be anchored in the Now. You won't lose yourself in the external world, and you won't lose yourself in your mind. Thoughts and emotions, fears and desires may still be there to some extent, but they won't take you over.
Another easier activity is practicing gratitude.
Maintain a journal and write down the points for which you are grateful for in the present moment whenever your mind wanders off.
Remember practice is the key!
Identification with your mind causes thought to become compulsive.
To the ego, the present moment hardly exists. Only past and future are considered important.
Try observing your thought patterns.
You'll notice that maximum percentage of your thoughts are about the past or the future.
How many of us have had our breakfast being completely engrossed in the moment and enjoyed the taste of our food? So train your brain on observing and focussing in the present activity that you are doing:
The breakfast tastes so good.
The sky is so blue.
My body feels so healthy and active.
The more you are able to honor and accept the Now, the more you are free of pain, of suffering -- and free of the egoic mind.
The art of inner-body awareness will develop into a completely new way of living, a state of permanent connectedness with Being, and will add a depth to your life that you have never known before.
