“All that is important comes in quietness and waiting.”
— Patrick Lindsay
The modern world is one of untold marvels, of lightspeed communication and international commerce. But this shiny new world comes at a cost. We demand instant gratification, endless productivity, and flawless efficiency. We push ourselves far beyond our limitations, and our bodies suffer. Our relationships suffer. How do we prevent this from happening? Easy. Make a point to relax and reflect, just a little bit each day. Force yourself to take regular breaks to stand up, stretch, get a bite to eat, whatever works. Find a catalyst that helps to clear the mind and live in the moment. Resist the pressure to go nonstop and take a little time to relax. A few minutes can make a big difference.
