3 Ways To Slow Down & Enjoy Life More
Slow Down And Enjoy Life With Amida Wealth
Being busy can make us physically and emotionally exhausted, which causes high levels of anxiety and stress, so slowing down can help calm the body and release tension. Sometimes we tend to keep busy, because we actually fear slowing down– perhaps, the act of ‘doing’ makes us feel relevant. However; when we actually slow down, we are able to reflect, breathe, and re-connect to our soul. This is the essence of living in wealth. Slowing down is a conscious choice, and not always an easy one, but it leads to a greater appreciation for life and a greater level of happiness and health. This Sunday Funday, take time to slow down and enjoy life more with Amida!
Why You Should Slow Down
Slow thinking allows for better, conscious decision making. In fact, every conscious, controlled, voluntary, and deliberate choice requires you to think slowly. Slowing down allows us to:
- Focus on what’s truly important in life. When you live a busy and distracted life, you lose sight of the people and things that matter most to you. Slowing down allows you to set your priorities and stick to them.
- Stay healthy—physically and mentally. Over-the-top busyness leads to stress, and chronic stress will wear down your mental and physical health.
- Be more productive. Rest is crucial for productivity. When you rush and hurry through your work, you’re more likely to make mistakes, and that forces you to go back and redo things you could’ve just gotten right the first time. Going slow and enjoying the moment allows you to bring your best energy and mental focus to your work.
3 Ways You Can Slow Down
First, Get Grounded – A grounding practice will leave you feeling more peaceful, calm, and intentional. Therefore, individuals become more aware of their limiting beliefs, goals, and aspirations. Grounding, also called earthing, is a therapeutic technique that involves doing activities that “ground” or reconnect you back to the earth. This practice relies on earthing science and grounding physics to explain how electrical charges from the earth can have positive effects on the body. Go for a walk, and take your shoes off on the grass to talk barefoot. Breathe, and let it go.
Second, Organize With A To-Do List – A To-Do-List is a time-honoured system that’s beautiful in its simplicity. To-do lists first, dampen anxiety about the chaos of life. Second, they give us a structure. Third, they create a plan that we can stick to. Lastly, they are proof of what we have achieved that day, week or month. When things feel overwhelming – stop, and refer back to your to-do list. Take things one step at a time. Breathe, slow down, take your time. Begin again.
Third, Reconnect To The Present – Being present simply means you’re focused and engaged in the here and now, not distracted or mentally absent. Reconnect to the present moment with your Breath. Mindful breathing anchors you into the present moment. Therefore, it reduces worrying about the past or the future. It has been shown to reduce anxiety, help with burnout, provide certain types of pain relief, and decrease negative thinking.
