"Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience." [Ralph Waldo Emerson]
The majority of our stress derives from the fact we are all victims of time. By slowing down, we allow our mind to make a subtle shift as it becomes accustomed to focusing on where we are at now, rather than on what we are supposed to do next. This subtle shift allows us to spend more time reflecting rather than projecting. Instead of pursuing happiness, why not slow down long enough for it to catch up with you?
