Slow it down and live it up..............

“Whatever the tasks, do them slowlywith ease,in mindfulness,so not do any tasks with the goal of getting them over with.Resolve to each job in a relaxed way,with all your attention.”
- Thich Nhat Hanh, Zen Master

All about being in the moment. I read somewhere a long time ago, that actually moving more slowly physically will make you take life at a slower pace - walking more slowly, eating more slowly, everything; and it's true. Life shouldn't need to be lived at such a harried pace that all we do is rush and push and collapse in a heap at the end of the day. Easy to say, harder to live.
