• stop rushing. start wasting time.

 

From the second we open our eyes to the moment we go to sleep – it’s easy to get swept down the rapid-fire river of 21st century life. We live in a world deliriously on the go; we climb career ladders, we stomp across the globe, we're constantly setting ourselves incredibly high tasks. A fast-paced life can be exhilarating and rewarding – but a slow relaxed pace can give you time to breathe and balance your world beautifully. Take a look at the benefits of a life well balanced.

 

life on the go

 

For those in favor of a life geared towards the fast lane it can be argued that a more hectic pace leads to lavish opportunities for self-development. We are fortunate enough to live in a world of vast possibility; from learning French to running marathons, the more you take on, the more you can achieve. 

When you are spending your days rushing from A to B it leaves less time to dwell. Mindful thinking can lead to a healthy and fulfilled life, yet if you are a person who tends to dwell on negative thinking or struggles with anxiety – then a life brimming with variety and change can sometimes seem the perfect distraction. 

 

the benefits of living at a slower place

 

However, studies conducted on the happiness stakes of countries across the world showcase that places like Denmark are off the charts when it comes to contentment levels. The Danes tend to live their life a little slower -they work less hours or they work from home, they relish more time in the great outdoors, and they have great childcare and social facilities.  

Embracing the day in a gentler way and taking a pause to think about how you spend your time can lead to deeper decisions. On the go life can lead to getting more done, but arguably you can end up wasting time doing things that aren’t that important to you. Waking half an hour earlier to spend some time relaxing and preparing mindfully about how you want to commit the hours of your day can deliver a more intuitive perspective as to what’s important to you, and ultimately help made your day more productive.

So, why not slip on your mahabis, sit back and make some time to do nothing.
