This Could Be The Last Time - Deepstash

This Could Be The Last Time

Stoics practiced ‘The Last Time’ meditation to experience life to the fullest. It is a mindset that makes us enjoy our experiences more.

  • At random times during the day, imagine that the experience you are having is for the last time.
  • If you are having coffee, pretend that it is the last time you will be able to taste coffee. If you are having dinner with your parents, imagine that this is the last time you will ever meet them.
  • Imagining that the experience will never occur again is a way to be more appreciative and to enjoy it at a different level.
