SLOW DOWN & ENJOY LIFE
~ rest is an important part of a healthy lifestyle ~
In a life where there are so many uncertainties, one thing is for sure – busy is a common trait. No matter what makes up your busy life, this is the harsh reality…busy leads to burnout.*
As Tim Ferriss, author of The Four Hour Work Week and entrepreneur for ideal lifestyle design, suggests we must ‘focus on being productive instead of busy‘. We all have 24 hours in a day, how you choose to spend those will have a ripple effect on your health and wellbeing.
“There is virtue in work and there is virtue in rest. Use both and overlook neither.” — Alan Cohen
All too often though, the average person spends too much on the former. Making time for rest is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. Without it, a non-stop busy life will not only impact you, but affect your family and relationships. Being busy causes a disconnection from those we love and adds stress.* We become distracted and lose sight of what’s really important.
“Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast–you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.” —Eddie Cantor
