I have a hard time slowing down. I feel this tremendous ambition to keep moving forward constantly. Usually until I pass out from exhaustion. In doing this I miss a million little things. I forget my hobbies. I dismiss me time. I am exhausted from sunrise to sunset.
Lately…I have been trying to undo that horrible habit. With the weather warming up I have been able to be outside more. Enjoy the sunshine. I realize it energizes me. The sun and it’s warmth actually makes me happy. I am sure there is some scientific reason for this…😉(Sunlight helps boost a chemical in your brain called serotonin, and that can give you more energy and help keep you calm, positive, and focused.)👍
So I decided, I need to take that time more. Breathe. Sit. Watch the sunrise with my coffee. And the sunset with my glass of wine. Both have been beneficial to me. I feel more relaxed. It has been nice.
So I guess what I’m saying is. Get outside friends enjoy the little miracles like a sunrise or the awe of a sunset. Don’t drive by it fast. Take that time to breathe and relax. Yes, your destination is important…so is your health and well being.
That is all I have tonight friends…Writing and life are a work in progress…(just like me)😉
