Slowing Down

Do you ever have a feeling that โ€œI know I am going to get sick?

Sometimes when we get so busy we donโ€™t catch the messages, the signs, the body, and the system telling us we are fatigued, rundown. Or sometimes we know, and we ignore the signals.

As soon as I finished my last class on Tuesday, my body caught up on me. My lower back started to hurt โ€“ a returning pain that would show up from time to time, usually, itโ€™s a sign of overworked. Then I was cooking Christmas dinner and burnt my hand. It was careless. But carelessness can be a sign that I am tired and paying less attention to things.

Running on a treadmill, just trying to get things done FAST, we so often miss the opportunity to pay attention, to reflect, to hear the potential messages that our body and our heart trying to tell us.

While constant work is good as it creates habits, it can also give rise to dullness after a while.

Our mind, and our body needs to be given rest and relaxation in order to get fresh, sharp, and creative again.

To prepare for the new year, to return with focus and clarity, to be more creative, this is a good time to slow down and prioritize rest and relaxation.

As festive as this holiday season were, try to take some time to slow down, to rest, to rejuvenate.

As for me, my lower back and burnt hand just prohibit me to do much, itโ€™s like life is telling me I need to take compulsory rest.
