Who else is charging about at break-neck speed?

Who else is charging about at break-neck speed?

Another awesome blog by Tracey Moggeridge “Mindfulness Teacher”

A challenge for you this week – what activity can you take your foot off the metaphorical accelerator pedal and slow down?

Do you notice if you are speaking more quickly than usual? Not giving people the true gift of your time and attention?

What happens when we are racing around at speed:

  • You may miss something or make a mistake
  • Moving at pace you are less likely to help others
  • You make poorer judgements

With the “Stress Response”, hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol raise the heartrate, quicken the breath and prime the muscles for action. It’s a vital survival mechanism, however long term stress can cause serious damage.

On the other hand, with the “Relaxation Response”…your heart rate decreases… breathing becomes slower and deeper… blood pressure stabilizes… your muscles relax

When we are stressed and our minds are racing, we inevitably end up in a fog, we can’t catch one thought – they whirl and chase – fogging up our judgement and our ability to see and think clearly.

This nugget of a virus is creating chaos, however the world doesn’t happen ‘to’ us, the world is what happens because of our relationship to IT.

Once you have slowed down – reflect:

  • What do you notice about your emotion landscape or your sense of well-being when you do?
  • What benefits are there to slowing down?

Remember to stay a healthy and kind distance from one another.

Peace, TM
