These days we all need reminders that stopping is possible. Stopping is going nowhere happily, turning away from the hurry that fills so much of modern life. Each day you can give yourself a mini vacation by stopping your doing for a few moments. Let go of paying bills, returning phone calls, crossing things off your to-do list, and take some time just to be.
The next time you are given a few free moments- you get off work early, you find yourself alone in the house for an hour, you have thirty extra minutes before you need to go to sleep- try not to immediately fill it.
