I’m doing a series here to dovetail with my book, Slow Down, Mama: Intentional Living in a Hurried World, to help you slow down and savor your life.
Our goal isn’t “slowing” as in, doing nothing. The purpose is to live a life where you curate your choices so that what you add into your days, and how you spend your time makes the greatest impact and adds the deepest meaning.
If you think about budgeting money, often the first thing you need to do is look at where your money is going. The same goes with our time and energy. In order to budget well, spend well, and invest well, we need to assess what we are already doing with our time.
A LITTLE PRACTICE
- Fold a piece of paper in half.
- On one side write out all your responsibilities, obligations, and activities that make demands on your time and energy.
- On the other side write a list of your goals, dreams, or longings.
- Then ask yourself what could be released on the side of your paper that is filled with your current “to-dos” to make room for something on the side with your “wish list.”
