Why Is Slowing Down So Difficult?

Updated: May 31, 2022

A client recently said, "but no one has ever told me to slow down."

Often we are told that we need to exercise more and do more. So, clients are often surprised that we focus on doing less.

Why do we have such a problem with slowing down?

Chronic illness can upend our lives. You might go from being a productive superstar at your office, or in your family, and now illness slowed you down.

You need to rest a lot more, or you risk having flare-ups that interrupt what you do.

You feel guilty. So as soon as you feel a bit better, you push harder to catch up, and then you fall into another flare-up.

I am always amazed by how much my clients are getting done. They might not see it because of the flare-ups, but they're quite busy. Sound familiar?

I invite you to explore slowing down, and to take rest more seriously - as an essential part of life. For some, slowing down means baking, painting, being in nature, or taking a walk.
