Slow down

Once again, it’s a new year and there’s already less than 365 days of new adventures. I wanted to wish all of you a welcome back to the grind. 2020 is a big year for the world – a lot of good things have happened, as well as the bad. Spring is an exciting time, especially for seniors like me! I graduate this spring and move on to the next chapter of my life and honestly, that is scary.

Through my daily scrolls on Pinterest, I have come across the topic of “slow living.” For those of you who know me, my life is pretty crazy and I am constantly on the go. I don’t know how I do it sometimes. Slow living is being able to tell yourself each morning that there is enough time in the day.

When that voice tells you that you don’t have time for lunch, remind yourself that in fact, you do. At the end of the day, take the time to write down one good thing that happened that day or you are grateful for.

The same principle applies to all of the items we have accumulated in our lives. Do you need to buy that cute dumpling light from Urban Outfitters that you have been seeing plastered across your social media? What about that t-shirt you got from a basketball tournament five thousand years ago?

Start thinking about what things and activities truly make you happy and how they can better your life, rather than stress you out.
