Simply put, when you rush through life, you forget to live in the NOW.
Maybe, a few suggestions to slow down: Do less, and focus on what needs to be done and leave the rest for later.
Plan your day by managing your time. Jot down small achievable goals for the day, not pages of things to be done.
This will only overwhelm you and then you will find at the end of the day, that nothing really ever gets done.
Let go of trying to multi task and concentrate on one thing at a time.
It is hard , but try to balance out your day so you have time to work, relax and be with your friends. After all life relationships are vital to your health and happiness. Why not make yourself a priority? It is good to simply enjoy life’s simple luxuries and pamper yourself. Do anything that makes you feel good, after all, you are so worth it!
Learn to say “No” to others when they want to you to join activities that you do not have the time for. This all comes down to managing your time and when you can do this, you will feel the stress fall away. There is much joy in each day, provided you allow yourself the time for it. Go with the flow and do what needs to be done and take each day as it comes, in other words, live for the moment. When you start enjoying your day, you know the stress and tension is slipping away and this feels wonderful. Since stress shows up in all areas of our lives, like work, family and relationships with others, why not try to live in the moment.
