Getting caught up in past and future moments can drain us of the possibilities we have today. Dr. Robin talks about the importance of living our lives in the present.
If you're focused on a future event—whether it's waiting for a new job or a new love—you'll always be consumed with something that hasn't even happened yet, Dr. Robin says.
Instead, make yourself take control over your mind, your spirit, your heart and feelings and decide that while you're waiting, you're going to enjoy each moment in the present. "Seize the moment because tomorrow is not ours to own," Dr. Robin says.
