Why It’s Important to Slow Down

If you’re anything like me, I’m constantly doing something. If I’m not, I feel guilty and make myself busy again.

For a while now, I’ve been feeling like I’m doing too much, never listening, never just being. There are always a million thoughts running through my mind, new ideas, new visions, new goals, walking, cleaning, driving, cooking etc.

Now it’s caught up with me; my body has manifested a stye in my right eye, pain in my wisdom tooth, mastitis and the general feeling of being run down.

Why does it get to this point that we finally listen? Why do we find it so hard to be still? Is it because we compare ourselves to others thinking they’re achieving so much that we fear if we’re not consistently doing, then we can’t create?

What use are we creating from a place where we’re run down, physically sick and emotionally exhausted? The energy going into whatever it is you want to achieve will be off, maybe even desperate.

I feel like as a society, we’ve been conditioned to think that if we’re not doing then we’re failing? It’s when we take a step back, rest, reset that the creativity flows, and it’s completely effortless. You’re letting creativity flow through you, and it’s easy.

When we step into life like this, whatever we execute comes from the heart and is a true masterpiece of our soul.

So I invite you to slow down and know that you’re exactly where you need to be. Don’t rush through life without opening your eyes to all the beauty it has to offer you. Listen. Be present. Stay present.
