Does the thought of slowing down make you feel uncomfortable?
Do you just not have the time,
don't know how, or
beat yourself up being "unproductive?"
I get it. I was the queen of being productive, and badass, always "getting shit done"
I felt SO uncomfortable and incapable of doing nothing.
And, I can promise you, you are missing out on SO much joy, enjoyment, and pleasure from experiences and from life by moving through it too quickly.
What do you think/fear would happen if you slowed down?
Where do those stories come from/where did you learn that?
(Journal prompt these!)
In this society we glorify "busy"
We wear it like a badge of pride
A crown of "success"
when no matter how "busy" we are, we still don't ever feel like we're doing enough, never getting to the end of our todo list, don't feel successful enough, are never earning ourselves "more time."
That's because working harder and moving faster doesn't buy us more time.
Being present does.
Slowing down does.
It allows us time to feel ourselves, know ourselves, and move from a place of purpose.
Priorities become clearer
Choices become easier
The less we do on a day to day basis, the more enjoyable life becomes.
Did you know we often over estimate what we can do in a day and underestimate what we can do in a year.
Read that again.
The irony is we drive ourselves to so much stress, we are actually less productive humans. when really if we slowed down and filled our own cups first, and moved with a clarity, devotion, and purpose to our lives,
Mmmmmm….. life can feel soooooo much sweeter.
Like newborn baby on a swing for the first time sweeter… seriously
I know this doesn't sound easy.
It takes practice.
Daily devotion to self and practice.
This is one of my main goals for The Revolution,
to celebrate the fuck out of slowing down.
If any of this sounds like you, let's chat. I would be honored to help.
