SLOW DOWN AND ENJOY LIFE
“Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
Racing through life is very stressful. If we stay in high gear too long, we lose our ability to down shift. And when we’re
(di-)stressed, we can’t access fun, happiness, appreciation, compassion, generosity, awareness of beauty and other wonderful qualities. High stress also triggers negative emotions like frustration, impatience, anger and fear.
Life has so much to offer if we will slow down and truly experience it. We must always remember that we are the ones in control of the accelerator. We CAN choose to brake.
“Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast — you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.” — Eddie Cantor
*Never have time for what you really want in life? Take control of the time of your life by changing your mind. Understand time from a higher perspective.
