We all hope that we can be the type of parent, partner or friend that really listens when our loved ones are talking to us.
 
When you were expecting your first child, had just met your beloved or started a new friendship I bet you had some ideas of just how you wanted things to be, or how you didn’t want them to be.
 
And one of those ideas might have been to be present in your relationships, to live in the moment.
 
We can sometimes have ‘grand’ ideas at the start, and then one-day ‘life’ happens, and we have a partner of ten years or three children all chattering around the kitchen bench, and instead of being that present person, we are more engrossed in our phones, our work or our own problems.
 
 
You might stop and look at yourself in horror, wondering, how did I get here, and it might be time to put the phone down and pay more attention to those you love.
 
Here are our tips for being more present.

With this beautiful warmer weather, you might be looking to add some lighter style dishes for lunches, BBQs and dinners.
