We can do this by creating simpler routines, scheduling more time between activities, scaling back our to-do list to fewer items, and limiting social media.
In order to do this, I don’t post on Sunday. I’m actually trying to leave my device off (and in a drawer?!) from Saturday evening until Sunday evening. That’s challenging for me. Thriving lives need room to breathe.
Try this: close your eyes and slowly take five deep breaths – in through the nose, out through the mouth. As you breathe in, feel your chest expanding to make room for the air. As you breathe out, notice the space, the emptiness, the clarity, the margin.
