Slow Down

20121122-051843.jpg

It seems that life these days is more busy, hectic and frenetic. Jam packed full of things to do, people to see, emails to read, events to attend and somewhere in all that we have to fit in work, the kids, relationships and sleep.
Life seems to be all rush, rush, hurrying from one thing to another.
The year whizzes by faster and faster. No sooner has Easter begun before suddenly Christmas rolls around again.

Is time actually going faster or are we living in a way that makes it appear so?

Have we fallen for the need to be on the go, doing, achieving in the name of productivity, satisfaction, excitement and happiness?

Constantly feeling you don’t have enough time speeds up your body clock, increasing your heart rate and over stimulating your nervous system. This creates the illusion that you’re doing things faster when in reality it’s only you that has sped up.

Time dictates to you rather than you dictating to time.

Stop, pause, take a breath, reconnect, have a time out, take a moment. Let the body return to its natural rhythm. Slow down.

Do things with connection and presence. Live moment to moment and let each moment complete.

Give it a try and join the “slow life movement”.
