✨Slowdown Sundays✨ Vol. 1 - Books & Mags

Taking the idea of slow living and dumping it onto your already busy life is not the way to embrace slow living. Start saying “no” to requests that come your way that will leave you in a ball of panic and stress later. It’s hard to say “no” to people at first if you are a “yes” person like me, but once you get the hang of it, the word “no” will leave room for a lot more slow living.

Seeking the right balance between slow and fast takes time and practice. Every Sunday we will talk about slowing down, listening to our bodies, and giving ourselves the much needed respite we need so we don't burn out.
