Life often feels like it’s passing us by. We rush from one thing to the next, trying to keep pace with our accomplishments and the hectic pace of life. We cram our schedules morning to night with activities because we feel we have to keep up. But in reality, rushing to check off another thing on our to-do list can then sometimes make us realize more tasks, which then get added to the list of things we need to do. In this way, we become even busier and less “present’ in our daily lives.
What if this summer, you take a moment to slow down, and cherish the tiny moments that appear in your life. This is one of the key times in the year where you’re given the opportunity to take a break from work, and really enjoy your time with friends, family and with yourself.
Slowing down will allow you to not just enjoy your experiences, but to savor the sweetness of them. It can teach you to be mindful and focused on the task at hand. Slowing down allows you to take a break from the 100 mile per hour pace you’re used to, and reminds you what’s most important in your life. We let go of the stress and have the opportunity to remain grounded and centered to who we are, and how we want to live our life.
Once you begin to slow down and give your life some breathing space, you’re also able to evaluate whether the life you’re living is what you truly want. More often than not, we can get so wrapped up in our to-do lists, keeping up with the Joneses, and living a life that we think we should be living, that we forget the purpose of why we are living the way we do.
So allow yourself some time this summer to gain some great clarity, and can begin to shape your life in the direction that you truly want, instead of being busy for the sake of being busy. Time is short, and it’s fleeting. We all know this. Make the most of it and take moments to slow down and reflect on the direction of your life and how to make the most of each sweet moment!
