As I


around doing everything that needs to get done in my day, my mind goes back to what my therapist and I talked about today.  Slowing everything down.  Being mindful.  Staying in the present.

Sometimes I get so caught up in the day that I forget to slow everything down a little bit.

It is only when I do that I realise that yes, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and there is time, I think I’ll never have enough time to do the things I need to get done.

But there is always time.

Today my lesson is going to be slow down. Stop. Take time to breathe, don’t rush around and get caught up in the whirlwind that is life.

I’ve had a busy day today. I’m just finished in class about 20 minutes. I was the only one in class this afternoon so I had one to one attention from my tutors.

We worked on the nutrition and healthy options module. I have my skills demo coming up in about 2 weeks.  For the skills demo I have to make a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I’m half way through that module now. I keep thinking, that didn’t take long!

Do you rush around each day? Are you so busy rushing that you forget to breathe sometimes, take deep breaths and slow everything down?
