Presence. Engaged. Engagement is intentional. Choosing intentionality is a choice to be aware and present. The busyness and noisiness of daily life can so easily overwhelm and exacerbate the senses, that disengagement slots into place as a self-protector.

I step myself in and locate myself in the here-and-now. Even if it's noisy and busy and loud. I get to be alive.
Wake up sleeper. Engage.
