I just want us all to take a moment and slow down. You don’t have to rush into anything today. Things will not be that drastically different tomorrow or in 5 minutes from now. Let’s just all take a quick moment to breathe, slow down, and refocus.
I have a lot on my mind these days. Today I started back to work (course prep online) and things aren’t going my way. Life is throwing a lot at me at the moment. I haven’t been exercising as I was earlier this summer. I am trying to figure out how to do it all. I am worried and stressed and feeling the same things that everyone else is feeling.
I decided to take this week one day at a time. I haven’t filled out my calendar in full this week or any of the weeks coming up. I am planning. I am going slow. I am considering all parts of my health and wellness. Today, my only goals left are to go for a run, do a meditation, attend a training, and get done at least 1 more hour of work. It’s only 1230pm, but I don’t want to over do it on the first day and then be burnt out.
I have already done yoga, taken the kids for a walk, done 2 hours of work, and delivered stuff to the school. The day doesn’t have to be packed full today. I need to make space to breathe. You do too.
How are you making space in your life to slow down?
