Slow Down

“If you’re in a tight spot today, try to breathe and remember what’s important.” Kundtz.[1]

Breathe and ask ourselves “what’s the hurry?” or “is this worth getting upset over?” When we really stop and focus we can access the part of our minds that create and problem solve. When we’re  “in a tight spot” we obviously want to get out of it, so we need to be as free from upset as possible, in order to figure out how to extricate ourselves. Once we have assessed the situation we usually realize that there isn’t much more we can do to alleviate or expedite it. It’s at this point that we really need to hone in on what’s important. Getting upset or allowing ourselves to become frustrated and angry robs us of the opportunity to make the most of the moment. Making the most of every moment is how we live fully and how we mindfully stay focused on what really matters to us.

David Kundtz asks us to ask ourselves, “What are your moments of frustration and impatience? Join me in making an extra effort – next time! -to be awake enough at those moments to turn them into moments of life.”
