The media and world at large continues to send out the repeating message “Slow Down”. A message of reducing stress, breathing and retaining health. For the majority of people this is needed. However with all types of spectrums there are extremes. There are those who are extremely busy, living fast paced lives and there are those who are no longer on the treadmill and living life in the Slow Lane. For some it is so slow it is barely moving.
If you are living a slow life it too can be out of balance and unhealthy. There can be a lack of purpose and structure which can develop into depression. Without the spikes of adrenaline, life morphs into one bland day after another and people can develop a distinct lack of appreciation for their own abilities and special gifts they have to share with the world.
When your life is slow it is incredibly hard to imagine living life in the fast lane. The brain has been trained to process deeply and slowly and even following a conversation can be difficult. So what are some of the solutions???
- Introduce a small amount of adrenaline in your life…
- try exotic food
- watch exciting movies
- theme park rides
- go to a party
- join the crowd at a sporting match
- dancing …
- Brain train through games, quizzes, conversations
- Get creative
- blog or write
- attend a workshop
- take photos
Most of all it is about getting the balance between being and doing. Being in the moment and doing something wonderful and magical.
Getting out of the slow lane is hard if you have been there a long time; stepping out takes courage and often needs lots of support. Dipping the toe into the waters of the faster moving river of life can fill you with trepidation. Trust the Universe, call upon your Angels, Guardians, Ancestors and those of the Light for support. Whilst you breathe you Live and living is where the magic happens.
