Slow Down, You Move Too Fast

Sally is not available this week, so enjoy today's post by TWM Founder Kristina Leonardi:

The unofficial start of summer is traditionally accompanied by a more relaxed, go-with-the-flow kind of attitude. Years ago there were only re-runs on a very limited number of TV channels and no internet to entice/distract/constrain us from being outside enjoying the warmer weather and longer days.

With our 21st century 24/7 lifestyle, this means that we have to consciously take time to disconnect with technology and re-connect with Nature, and ourselves.  

Like that cool special effect in big blockbuster movies of our recent past and present, we need to pause midair and get a full 360 degree view of what is going on around us so that we can take the precise action to defend and/or advance who we are and what we want.

So while in the park or at the beach, be sure to take a moment toreflect on where you really want to be going and why, rather than just moving unconsciously from one activity to the next, day after day. If you've been feeling too anxious or not in control, give me a buzz - I'll take the remote out of your hand, put it on slo-mo, and guarantee you'll be feelin' groovy in no time!
