Slowing down seems counter-intuitive for many, as we have become so familiar with the busyness of everyday lives. This is also a time of year that nature reflects to us the importance of slowing down, quietude and going within; we can draw from this season's deep significance. Please find below some considerations for slowing down:
1. Pace of Life: Evaluate where you are headed with your pace of life. If you take a step back, where are you rushing to?
2. Doing Nothing: Look to see if there are any ways to integrate a day of the month to do "nothing", or even an hour once a week “to just be”.
3. Lighten the schedule: See what can be eliminated even if temporarily.
4. Being More Present: Find ways to be more in the moment and present with yourself.
