Unfortunately, we tend to think that these experiences are one-of-a-kind and rare. Of course, each of them are worthy of being cherished, but you can recreate this state of mind as often as you’d like.
You can experiment with finding the cues that will bring your mind back to the present moment, and a great way to start is to see (and use) daily routine actions as your inner alarm clock/reminder to shift your attention back to the present.
You can turn virtually any action or object into “reality alarm clock”: going up and down the stairs, standing in a Starbucks line, or actually bringing your car to a full halt upon seeing a stop sign.

Step #3. Rewire. Finally, take some time to bask in this experience of being present after you’ve noticed the alarm-clock reminders and shifted your attention to reality anchors.
