Staying in the Present

Do you ever have trouble staying in the present?
I do.
Today is especially hard.
The Not-Present is very unpleasant today so I am trying to only think about the now.
It is not easy.
I keep a running mantra going of whatever I am doing. "I can put this cream on my face. I can seal these envelopes..."
I am exhausted living in the present.
p.s. the photo is from a very pleasant past---the beautiful cherry blossoms in Japan.
