We all have obligations and deadlines. But hurry and extreme future-mindedness impoverish the present. What we value most is love, friendship, solace, beauty and humor. Yet these things are best appreciated or communicated face to face in a calm, relaxed setting.
Slowing down enhances your sense of gratitude, improves your mental and physical health, allows you to gain control of your life, lets you appreciate beauty, and enables you to reconnect with those around you.
Sometimes the best way to spend a day is simply savoring what you have before it’s gone.”
