Slowing down. Taking time out. Pausing. In a world of rushing around, constant busyness, and endless doing, it can be a radical act to just be. Your friends may wonder what’s wrong with you. Your mind may tell you to get off your ass. But at what expense are we doing without moments of being? In the course of a day, a year, or a season of your life, are you taking time to stop and notice where you are in this moment?
What are your daily habits? Do they truly nourish you? How do they support you in your life? Are they purely physical in nature? Or do they have a quality of spirit that connects you to something greater? On a very practical level, our daily habits either support or diminish our wellbeing – physically, mentally, and emotionally.
