100 Days of Self-Discovery – Day 4 – Slowing Down To Speed Up – 3 Minute Read


I woke up this morning and felt like I just stepped out of the shower. I was sweating, my stomach was in a knot and I was just generally lethargic.

I attempted to will my mind and body that I wasn’t going to get the flu bug that Julie and everyone else around me had, but I guess it was my time.

It was my time to slow down and reflect about what is really important in my life.

It was time to slow down and reflect on what is really important in the world around me.

I spent the morning drinking tea and then decided that my workout got to be postponed to tomorrow.

I realized that I get to listen more often to my body and what it is telling me.

Some people would call me a workaholic and a “machine” when it comes to me working. I am always working on something and always working on ways to make what I’m working on better and more efficient.

Today I chose something different. I chose to slow down. I chose to reflect on what is the most important thing I get to today and do it.

Today, that is taking care of myself so I can heal and be back to 100% by Monday.

On Monday, my day will start the usual way with coffee and the gym, but I get also get to slow down and reflect on what is the most important ONE thing I get to do that day and then do it.

I have been such a busy multitasker that I really haven’t gotten anything done lately.

Just a bunch of half-finished projects I’m working on with no sense of direction.

That changes TODAY. That changes RIGHT NOW.

Slowing down
