If you’re always in a hurry to get things done and to get to places.
If you’re always getting headaches while working.
If you realize that you’re always feeling anxious and stressed.
Take the time to mentally tell yourself to take things slowly because life is a marathon, not a sprint.
The faster you sprint, the quicker you burn out.
Pace yourself and keep going instead.
There’s no point in going so fast and burning out often.
That wrecks your immune system and your health too.
Go slow and learn to enjoy the process.
Much like the story of the tortoise and the hare, the one who makes constant and steady progress wins.
The same applies to our lives.
And the sooner you realise and apply it, the more content you’ll be with life.
We have a way of making things more stressful and complicated than they seem.
Slowing down helps to keep us in perspective and improves focus.
Try out a little experiment for today.
Whatever tasks you have for the day, slow down your movements while doing them.
You may have a lot of things to do like doing the laundry, working on a report, or doing homework.
Just take them slower than usual.
Reduce the speed at which you usually do them and notice how you feel throughout the day.
How are your stress levels like?
Do you find yourself being in the zone faster?
Are you more or less productive?
Some of you might find that this is exactly what you needed all along.
