Todays life is fast paced!
Everyone wants everything fast: Meals delivered at a click of a button! Things delivered within minutes. A rush to reach their destinations within seconds. No patience to wait in queues. Everything at a click of a button. Even meals are cooked fast. Even expect our kids to grow up fast and achieve more in a short time. Surfing channel to see whats being played in different channels at the same time. No time to stand in grocery queues.
However, nature does not want us to live our lives so fast paced..
Living fast paced can give rise to anxiety, high blood pressure and stress.
It wants us to slow down!
Enjoy the things around us!
Even in cities there is so much of nature around us.
We should be watching the sunrise through our windows.
Listen to the birds chirping and the wind blowing.
Listen to the dogs barking.
Listen to the rain drops falling on a tin roof.
Enjoying our morning cuppa of coffee at an leisurely pace.
Enjoying its aroma.
Strolling leisurely in a park.
Not be bound by time.
Read the hard copy of “A Book of Simple Living: Brief Notes from the Hills” by Ruskin Bond!
Cooking a slow meal and enjoying the process of cooking the meal.
Eating leisurely with kids and family.
Lazing on a sofa with your favourite novel.
Going for a slow jog without attention to timing or pace.
Practising mindfulness in our lives!
Keeping our electronic gadgets shut for a day!
What a life that would be.
It would add Chi to our daily lives.
So SLOW DOWN!
Make your day pleasant!
