Do you need to slow down?Jun 28, 2022
It's inevitable that we get caught up in the day-to-day aspects of life and jam-pack our schedule full of things to do. You may even be worried that you'll fall behind if you take a break, causing you to work harder.
When's the last time you slowed down?
Being in a state of chronic stress can boost your body's output of cortisol and adrenaline (essentially throwing you into a state of constant fight or flight), which dramatically takes a toll on your body. You can train yourself to slow down and lower your stress with some practice.
A practical way to do this is to build time into your calendar around important appointments, meetings, and commitments so that you can show up fresh and clear-minded. Create boundaries for your time, and don't put too much on your plate. Lessening the stress your schedule creates for you will help you have time to focus on other stress-lowering practices.
Even consider scheduling a self-care or relaxation block into your schedule to make sure you save some of your time for yourself.
