Depends on what I am doing, but I am pretty good at focusing on whatever my attention is on, unless it's some task I'm doing. I multi-task a lot. But when I'm with a loved one, my partner, pet or family or if I'm doing something like working on a project, cooking, etc. I'm very focused on exactly what I am doing.

I'm kind of infamous among my friends and family about the way I'm never paying attention to my surroundings, so I almost chose "Could you repeat the question?" My mind is definitely almost always far away.

My mind tends to wander to other things a lot but I've been trying to be more "in the moment" (and I think I'm getting better at it).

So many people aren't in the present! Interesting.

Sometimes I am, but I have a very busy mind and it's often focused on other things.

I'm a real dazed person, but usually I'm here!

This is one of the things I love about spending time with my animals. Animals always live in the moment, and so do I when I spend time with them. I love how centered and fresh that makes me feel. It's a real gift!

Yes! When I had pets, they were a(n almost) constant source of inspiration and joy. Except when they pooped in the house. Those were moments I think I could have done without!

Me, too. It's so easy to lose focus. I've just returned to a regular routine of meditation and it helps more than anything else I've tried. Being active outdoors in nature is good, too.

It really depends. If there's something specific I'm working on or a person/pet I'm interacting with then I'm there and in the moment. If you throw me into a situation alone or with a crowd of people you will probably catch me staring off into space

I'm always here. But I do tend to wander at times.
