Welcome to the !rst ever issue of In The Moment. We’ve been mulling over the idea of launching this magazine for a while, wondering how we could create something that women could really connect with. The thing that helped us get there was simply taking the !rst steps of the process. A little encouragement and some hard work led to a few more steps, and a few more… until we achieved something fantastic. We hope you like it too! So what could be more apt for a !rst edition than making small steps – the little things in life – one of our themes? If something seems impossible or too much of a commitment, breaking it down into tiny targets is a way you can achieve larger goals. We’ve explored this…

Better do it tomorrow… You have a deadline: do you have a sudden urge to tidy your desk or make everyone in the of!ce a coffee? Being a procrastinator doesn’t mean you don’t get the task done (and on time, too) but it’s often accompanied by the guilt of, ‘Why didn’t I start this earlier?’. Now it turns out procrastinating might not be a bad thing after all. “Our !rst ideas are often our most conventional ones, whereas procrastination allows a person’s mind to wander, leading to more innovative thinking,” says Adam Grant, a professor at Pennsylvania University whose work focuses on ways to live more generous and creative lives. This doesn’t mean you should leave things to the last minute, as rushing can lead to the easiest rather the most original ideas.…

there’s more than one way to become more mindful

Fitting a regular mindfulness meditation practice in among the hustle and bustle of everyday life can be a challenge. But the desire to bring more mindfulness into your life doesn’t mean you have to sit still and count your breath for hours. It’s about "nding a way that suits you and your lifestyle, whether that’s 10 seconds, 10 minutes or a few hours a day. The choice is yours and it all adds up. Even if you do dedicate time to a mindfulness meditation practice, it’s important to take the experience o# the cushion or chair and out into the world. Adopting this approach will eventually lead you to live more mindfully. What this means is that you don’t actually need more time, but rather the motivation to integrate mindfulness into…

find your frequency

Because this is the first issue of a new magazine, we’ve been talking a lot about starting out on new ventures. Have you ever found it hard to take the first step with a new goal or pastime? If you have, then now is the best time to begin. No, really! Summer’s here, so there are no more cold weather excuses, there’s no more ‘I don’t really feel like it today’ procrastination. There will never be a better time than now. Even with the best of intentions, we know that this can be easier said than done. Dig a bit deeper and you might see those excuses are nothing but a drab and unhelpful coverup for the insistent internal commentary that tells us, ‘You can’t do that!’, ‘Who do you think you…
