When life forces you to slow down - featured image
I’m a huge advocate for living life at a slower pace, creating a life for yourself that is calm instead of busy and overwhelming. That’s kinda my thing. I’m also the first to admit that it’s a process. A slower life doesn't happen overnight... But sometimes, life happens, and you just don't have a choice in the matter. You HAVE to slow down - right now - and you might not be ready for it yet. So, what do you do when life forces you to slow down before you’re ready?
signs its time to slow down - featured image
There was a time in my life when I loved to be busy. I was young and single. I had a social life, a full-time job, hobbies…I was killing it! And having fun! But, as it always seems to go, all those things keeping me busy began to multiply. I found myself adding more and more and more to my days. I said yes to everything! New responsibilities…new hobbies…new adventures. And it wasn’t long before I realized that I wasn’t having fun anymore.
balancing productivity & self-care
Be more productive! Make time for self-care! If you’ve spent any time on social media or reading magazines lately, you’ve probably had both of those phrases drilled into your head. But...how can you find the time to do both? We’re going to answer that question, as well as setting up some realistic expectations for what balancing productivity & self-care really looks like.
mental wellness
We need space in our lives, openness, both physical space and, more importantly, mental space. Time that allows our minds to relax and untangle. Have you ever struggled to solve a problem or remember a name? You think about it all day and just can’t figure it out! And then, at three in the morning, you suddenly wake up with the answer! Why does that happen? Because your mind is relaxed. It continues to work on the problem for you, without all the normal interruptions that happen while you’re awake. It finally has the space to wander until it finds the answer. Pretty crazy, huh?
