Time goes by so fast. We work hard all week. The weekends disappear in a blur if we’re not careful. Any many of us get so caught up in jobs and errands that we don’t stop and enjoy life.
Do you take the time to notice a sunrise or a sunset? The smell of a baby after a bath? Dew on the grass or flowers in bloom? Or just nature in general?
Do you have a hobby? If not, I encourage you to consider finding one. Yoga, running, knitting or some other type of handwork, photography, playing with a pet, painting or drawing.
The ideas are endless. And most are free or minimal cost. Something that will allow you to downshift from the daily grind. To destress. To renew yourself. We give and give so much of ourselves that we need to find time to refill our well with the things that will give us pleasure.
All you need to do is schedule the time on your calendar to relax. Make it as important as any appointment or committiment. Because it is. It’s important to your health and well-being.
Since I’ve started taking regular time to pause and enjoy the little things, I’m less stressed and definitely happier. And I think if you try it, you will be too. What do you have to lose?
