i’m all about slowing down.
and in order for me to slow down, i need to be hyper efficient.
i squeeze my workouts into 20 minutes, 30 minutes or maybe even 37.
i wash the dishes while i eat.
cook supper while making breakfast.
blog while on the go.
but i’m noticing that speeding up in order to slow down pretty much defeats the purpose entirely.
for example: today i have the whole day free. and you’d think that would make me want to take all the time in the world. and yet i catch myself trying to do 30 minute workouts, maybe do the one hour class at the gym - but a long bike ride? out of the question.
But something happens to my heart when i do things that take a long time.
it slows down for real.
it calms down, it finds peace.
my brain gets creative.
i’ve got time to push through the barriers.
i breathe, for real.
What can you do slowly today?
