I was shocked to see how far into the year we are now. Where have all those days, weeks and hours gone? Life is happening too fast.
Maybe time is accelerating as some people are saying, maybe my daily routine is getting too….mmh…. routinely?
It was a Saturday two weeks ago, when I attended a very interesting conference at a University, I was still trying to let the concepts learnt there sink into my head, when suddenly I saw the calendar and it was Saturday once more! So soon? Where did all the rest of the week go?
Then I decided to make time go slower, yes, if time is a perception of the mind as some theories affirm, then I had to try and make it flow slowly.
I stopped rushing every day and took more time to observe things around me, to enjoy every moment of the day and make an effort to notice those little details that pass unnoticed all the time.
And yes, believe it or not, I discovered that taking things in a more calmed way, stopping the pressure to do a hundred things per day to meet all my deadlines on time has made a lot of difference.
Even my body is reacting in a more positive way, I was beginning to feel too stressed over all the tasks I had accepted and my inner self was shouting that I was going to end up with a heart attack or something worse.
This week definitely “passed” more slowly to me and I am surprised for all the things I was able to accomplish by slowing down my daily pace. It sounds paradoxical, I know, but by doing things in a more relaxed way, my productivity raised.
I invite you to test this for yourself.
You won´t realise how many things you are missing in your daily life, until you take the time to allow yourself to notice them.
