Pause

I’m currently working on a wellness article. A few experts recommend an easy, and life-changing tip that we simply don’t do enough.

This isn’t about decluttering or exercising. While those are great wellness tips, it’s not as emotionally freeing as this.

Pause.

We’ve been trained by television, computers and our phones to jump from one thing to the next. This makes us impatient and emotionally reactive. To be adept at problem solving and decision making, however, we need to stop, breathe, and think before we react. It requires conscious response.

Same with whatever healthy habits you’re trying to adopt or unhealthy habits you’re trying to avoid. Before you take on home organization, saving the world and dealing with your seasonal blues, stop. Become aware of what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. Just by doing that, you’ve taken one step in the right direction to a happier, healthier 2017.
