Enjoy the moment” is a phrase that we use often when we are doing something that we like to do. But it also can be a reminder to take the less-than-perfect times and treasure them as memorable, or a time that will never be forgotten.

We all have this favorite expression when it comes to being stressed out, and I wouldn’t bother naming all of them since it may also vary in different languages. But when it comes down to it, I think that it is how we work, or even relax for that matter, that triggers stress. Ever been stressed even when you’re well relaxed and bored? I know I have.

Since stress is unavoidable in life, it is important to find ways that you can decrease and prevent stressful incidents, and decrease negative reactions to stress. Enjoying the moment can be done by just recalling the past, since life is basically a routine to follow like brushing your teeth, or eating breakfast. You can do a few of them in a longer span of time, but as they say– every minute counts, and it gives you another chance to consider, evaluate, and live in the moment.
