As everything around us becomes more and more fast-paced, it has become increasingly challenging to slow down. I often find it difficult to allow myself the opportunity to take things slow. But when I finally do, I always realise how much I needed it. From time to time, we all need to disconnect to connect.
How do you slow down?
“Reflect on Moonlists.”
This is a workbook with prompts, lists and questions that allows you to reflect on recent happenings, influences and thoughts. I was gifted a copy by my sister and it has been a helpful guide for me to be more mindful.
“Engage in a quiet solo activity.”
Immersing yourself in an uninterrupted session of quiet solo activity like writing, reading, sketching or meditating can be incredibly therapeutic. Also, try visiting a library or museum to freshen your mind and get inspired with new ideas.
In the midst of the rush, it is important that we choose to prioritise our well-being. By slowing down and living mindfully, we begin to discover—or rediscover—meaning in the mundaneness of our everyday.
