Slowing It Down

“It is important from time to time to slow down, to go away by yourself, and simply be.”
Eileen Caddy

Most of us live in a hectic, fast-paced, frantic hurry. We do one thing after another, multi-tasking and switching between as many tasks as we can. All in the name of productivity, of having more, of appearing busy, to ourselves and to others.

Rushing produces shallowness, because we never have time to dig beneath the surface. Slow down and dive into deeper waters.

Go slower. When we have planned our day we can work accordingly and pace our selves. When we eat, remembering to chew and taste the food. Stop to admire nature by looking, seeing and appreciating the greenery around. Let the pet cat jump up for a stroke and listen to it purr.

We can really appreciate what we have, what we are doing, who we are with, when we take the time to slow down and really pay attention.

Life as a whole is better if we go slower, and take the time to savour it, appreciate every moment. This is the simplest reason to slow down.

Stop living too fast. Take a different approach today.

‘Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going to fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.’
Eddie Cantor
