I decided not to make any New Years Resolutions this year. Instead, I asked myself to choose a new focus, write it down, and revisit that focus more frequently. My new focus this year? SLOW DOWN
I definitely have a flawed belief that productivity=worthiness.
What a way to set myself up for burnout! A recent vacation was the opportunity for me to realize that when I slowed down, I physically felt better, I laughed more, I was able to be more mindful, and I found myself actually recharged and ready to return to my reality of 3 kids, 2 dogs, and a variety of professional responsibilities. I might even finally attend that Book Club!
Ways to slow down in the real world?
There are countless ways to slow down in a very busy world. We must choose to prioritize on a daily basis. Sometimes every couple of hours! Flowers grow where they are watered.. what will you water this year?
