Back to School? Slow Down!
This is a very busy time of year, especially for families as their kids and teens prepare to return to school.
Let me tell you a secret about what I used to do when my daughter went back to school after being with me all summer: I took a nap.
It felt indulgent. It felt naughty. Surely there was work I needed to do after making her a priority for three whole months!
That’s exactly why I did it.
Here’s your Earth Joy Writing prompt for this week:
Make a point of slowing down today. Eat your breakfast slowly. Take a long time getting dressed. Drive in a patient way. Do your work at a relaxed pace. (Maybe even take a nap!) Unwind at the end of the day by simply resting. Then, in the morning, write about how this feels. Experiment with slowing down and then record the results that come from feeling you have an abundance of time.
