Choose a pace that feeds you.
Our culture pushes so hard to do more, to get one more thing done.
There’s an endless push.
Strive. Strive. Strive.
Rush. Rush. Rush.
I could feel this happening as I was about to leave work tonight.
I thought if I leave now I’ll have time to pull off to the side of the road and meditate for 10 minutes OR
I could go to the store and pick up X that I “need”.
I sat with that and chose the former because time for stillness feeds my inner calm and helps me be a better me for me and all in my household when I open the door.
Give yourself 5 minutes to be before you step into your house after work.
Let’s stop the collective glorification of rushing, rushing, rushing.
5 minutes of stillness for your health (for your blood pressure, for your cortisol levels for your peace).
Gift yourself this time:
For you, your well-being, and every person in your life.
With love and gratitude,
