Take Your Time, Do It Right

Does being in a hurry relieve stress or create stress? Let’s analyze this for a minute. If we get there quicker, will we be relieved because we were early or made it on time? Possibly the slightest, but was it worth it?

Now let’s analyze how we feel while we are rushing. I become more agitated. I push people out of my way. My heart is racing. I fear I might be late or miss something. When I get there I am not enjoying it as much because my heart is already all wound up and I’m overanxious.

Then let me take a different route where I can take my time and perhaps enjoy the scenery better. Will I have to prepare myself a little more so I won’t get caught in a rush? I might have to, but it’s better to change my routine than it is to be all stressed out. Doing this I set the stage for a peaceful encounter.

Have a peaceful day.
