As you go about your day, begin each task with a short prayer and end each task with thanksgiving. For instance when you go to check your email pray that the peace of God will be with you in your correspondence and after you close your email thank God being present. This is a way of becoming conscious of our dependence on grace as well as a way to be present in each of our activities.
