Are you living your life in the fast lane? To busy to smell the roses? Give yourself a break. How about just 15 minutes a day, to begin with… Switch of your cell, laptop, i-pod, kids, anything that might distract you. Treat yourself to some peace and quiet. Forget about all the things that need to be done. Just be, daydream a little, stare outside, count your heartbeat, follow your breath. Practice doing nothing. This might feel somewhat uncomfortable at the beginning, as you are addicted to the rush, but give it a try. Set yourself the goal to sit still 15 minutes a day for the next 21 days. That’s the time it takes to instil a new habit. Try it and see how your perspective on life changes, getting clearer every day. You’ll love it!
‘switch of your […] kids’, da’s een hele goeie! ook nog een tip hoe? 🙂
(misschien: switch on ‘sesamtraat’!)
Switching of your kids by switching on Sesame Street might not work quite as well as letting your husband take the kids to the playground for some time or have some time ‘off’ in the evening. My favorite is getting up half an hour before the daily morning routine starts, make a cup of tea and a buttered biscuit and curl up in a corner of the sofa or even better in bed. There’s no better way to start your day! Good morning to you, have a nice day.
