Always in a Hurry?  10 Ways to Slow Down

Written by on August 5, 2019 in Health, Longevity & Life Extension with 0 Comments

You keep telling yourself to slow down and develop a higher quality life.  You can recite all the benefits of slowing down, yet it just never happens. Exhaustion wins most nights and you long for a magic wand to set the clock back a few hours.  

What are some simple practices that can add up to quality living and not exhaustion? 


Read through the list and pick one thing that resonates and begin to practice it.  After mastering that, choose another.  As you know the benefit of not multi-tasking equals higher focus and concentration, which in turn is also restful.

10 Ways to Slow the Heck Down!

  1. Check email only twice a day
  2. Take the scenic route
  3. Set aside one night a week all for yourself
  4. Light candles before you start to cook dinner and play relaxing music
  5. Make a handmade present for a friend
  6. Spend as much time outdoors in a natural setting as you possibly can
  7. Sit for a few moments with your eyes closed before you stare at your computer
  8. Write in your journal:  5 gratitudes or what you want from the day ahead
  9. Play with a child when the opportunity rises
  10. Pay attention to the moon cycles and the shifting seasons

Another tip, not on the list is to use as few words as possible when communicating.  Learn to be clear and concise.  This act alone can add many minutes to your day.

Be well my friend, and slow down!
