Yes, I am giving you permission to stop what you’re doing. I promise, as urgent or as important as it might be, it will still be there waiting for you – and the world will not crumble if you stop…(I dare you to find out for yourself).
Now take a deep breath in – the kind that makes your diaphragm hurt. And let it all out. Take another deep breath in. Fill your lungs to capacity. And let it all out. Do this 10 times. 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10…
Now get back to the task at hand.
Notice how different you feel? Do you have more energy? Are you experiencing more mental clarity? Has a new idea popped into your mind?
Yes, sometimes slowing down does help you get more things done.
Give yourself a Zen moment every 2 to 3 hours throughout your day. And watch how much more effective you become.
And please, share this with someone around you…
