Stress Reduction: Feeling at Home
Rhythms of Rest
We live in an age of terrifying speed and haste, working fast, gobbling our food down fast. Even the fast-time cycle of high-tech hubs systematically shortens our every step from product to delivery.
We’ve become a quick-reflexed, channel-flipping, fast-forwarding species, and we’ve discovered all sorts of quick devices to make things faster…..so when we use them, another fraction of a second is saved. But does making everything go faster really relieve our stress or add meaning to our lives?
It seems that the more we fill our lives with time-saving devices, the more we rush, and the more anxious, tense and stressed we feel. Why? Because our attention is still on time.
We must slow down and take time to savor this life. We can go fast sometimes,
as long as we take the time regularly to. . . pause.
Stop and rest, and give yourself the opportunity to check in with yourself. Notice the difference betweeen stopping — and letting yourself continue to be busy…..
Take a moment, an hour, or a day to rest. Liberate yourself from the compulsion to finish, and give yourself a moment to reflect — and to really think about your life.
The adverse effects of stress can be devastating to not only your health, but to your relationships, your work, and to the overall quality of your life. That’s why you must find a way to relieve the pressure and create deep relaxation to calm, stabilize and balance your system.
