Mindfulness And Breaking Free of Busyness

side of the road

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,
