The Biggest Lesson I learned this year....






I don't know about you all but I can't believe that we are already in August, time is flying by and before you know it we will be at the end of this year. So as I was sitting and chatting with my hubby, we were just talking about how taking our time is so important.


What do you mean Fe?


Why are we rushing through life so much? Why are we flying down the highway? Literally y I was observing this as I was going to work the other day I feel like everyone is in a rush to go somewhere, we are distracted, and we are constantly on to the next thing.


When was the last time you just simply took your time doing something? When was the last time you truly slowed down?


What I've learned is that time waits for no one and every moment that we have on this earth is a gift that I don't want to miss out. I don't want to miss those beautiful moments because I'm distracted by social media or distracted by paying attention to what everyone else is doing, or rushing to the next job/task.


I'm learning how to slow down. I'm learning how to cherish each and every moment because I realize that it is just that; a moment.


So how do you slow down?


Here are 3 key things that I am incorporating into my life so that I can truly take time and slow down.


1. Designate social media time

How many times have you started scrolling and before you know it, it's an hour later and you are still looking at everyone's life instead of living yours? Designate 10, 15, or 30 minutes where you give yourself permission to scroll then put it away. WHY? Because it's time for you to live your life and enjoy your moments.


2. Plan ahead

So often the reason why we are jumping from one task to the other is because of poor planning, Take time out before the week even begins and plan your day, your week. Allow yourself some buffer time to simply rest, relax and rejuvenate.


3. Stop Multitasking

Let me tell you I was the queen of multitasking because as an athletic trainer taking care of multiple athletes it was needed. However, what I learned in doing that is that you never fully complete a task and then you are filled with anxiety because of the task left undone. It's okay to do one task at a time and it's needed. Doing one task at a time allows you to focus on that one thing. It also opens up space for you to simply breathe and be. So as much as you are the Queen/King of multitasking take that cape off and give yourself permission to do 1 thing at a time.



So what is the biggest lesson that I learned this year?


I can't buy back time but what I can do is enjoy the time that I do have.




With love,


Felicia
