Slow Down and Breathe

It has been an unusually busy day.  I found myself attempting to multi-task which is something I have not done in a long time.

My mind kept bouncing like a ping pong ball between thoughts of things that happened a few hours ago and the list of tasks waiting to be performed.  

Trying to meet a deadline I felt as if my heart was racing all day long. It was not until a few moments ago I realized I spent the entire day in a state of distress rather than a state of peace and ease.

When I finally recognized what was happening I stopped what I was doing. I closed my eyes and focused on my hand as I put it over my heart and took a long deep breath.

Then I began to whisper prayers of gratitude for each item I touched.  

As I felt myself settle back into the present moment I could feel how much my body suffered by spending an entire day just outside of the present moment.

I am grateful it is so easy to return.  

I intend to slow way down now.  

I invite you to do the same.
