The present moment is the only time when we are in charge of our thoughts, emotions, and actions, and have the capacity to change them at will.

You can do this short practice right at your desk or any environment with your eyes open or closed. It will help you to switch between tasks, meetings, and phone calls to enhance the quality of your presence and attention. Think of it as a restart button for your brain and body that you can use many times throughout the workday.
Tip: Breath through the nose. May exhale through the mouth if that feels good.
