Slow down and enjoy every task. This might be the most most important tip I’ve discovered for simplifying one’s life. Then why does it have to be so hard? I resolve to slow down no matter what I’m doing; whether it’s a work task, eating, brushing my teeth, cooking dinner, driving Grace to school. I will try to enjoy whatever I’m doing. I’ll try to pay attention, instead of thinking about other things.
Specificly, I will eat slowly. This is just a more specific application of taking things more slowly but it’s something I do every day, so it deserves special attention.
I will also drive more slowly. Another application of the same principle, driving is something I do that’s often mindless and rushed. Instead, I resolve to slow down and enjoy the journey.
