I knew from a young age that life was precious and that I should try to enjoy every moment. So my technique is to remind myself to take each day slowly because you never know when it will end or when I loved one may be taken away from you.
Now that I have two young boys, it is even more important to me to remind myself daily to take it slow, because sometimes feelings creep in of "I just wish they would grow out of this stage..." but you know, there will ALWAYS be some new stage, so why rush the current one. Just live life and love it everyday.
