Wondering what “One day at a time” means? It is a belief from Alcoholics Anonymous that each individual has 24 hours of sobriety. It was specially coined for most people, whether they suffer from addiction or not. The idea of never having a drink again is terrifying, so take each day as it comes without worrying of yesterday and tomorrow. Live in “Today” and make the most of it, is the idea behind the phrase.

It means being present in the moment and focusing on now. So take it one day at a time/take each day as it comes means to deal with things as they happen and not to make plans or to worry about the future.
