A trip to Montauk.

- Where are you from?

- Ukraine.

- Wow. How are you doing? And your family?

- Don’t really want to talk about it.

- That’s absolutely fine, you don’t have to. I’m so sorry to hear about what’s been going on. Just hope you and your family are okay.

- Thank you so much for understanding, I really appreciate it. So what brings you to Montauk?

- My therapist told me to read this book. How do you find it?

- Oh, interesting. I bought it years ago but had not prioritized reading it until now, mainly because I’m an intuitive learner so I prefer learning by trying to figure things out myself first. I do find that a lot of what I see working for me is mentioned in the book, but it’s also opened my eyes to theories that I haven’t thought of before. I recommend it.

- So you’re saying that you’ve already been practicing what the book suggests before reading it and it works for you?

- Yeah. I’ve definitely noticed a massive shift in my personal growth since I started practicing the techniques I’ve developed for myself. Reading this book helps me deepen that awareness and expand my understanding. But what are you struggling with that your therapist told you to read this book?

- I have a hard time staying present.

- Ahh… yeah that’s a common one. Have you tried practicing solitude?

- I do. I travel by myself every month so that’s at least 12 times a year, and I spend a lot of time myself alone.

- What do you do when you’re alone?

- Hmm... I guess I’m always checking my phone and social media.

- I see. If you’re always on your phone and scrolling through your social media feed even when no one is around you, you’re not really alone. You’re actually surrounding yourself with full of noises. It’s not about how much time you spend alone but how you spend your time.

- That’s true… OK, I’ll get the book. So what do you think I should do to become more present?
