Last year I stopped saying “I´m in a hurry“. I just stopped.
I did it because I realized it was just a habit for me. I was in a hurry just because I was saying it to myself. But I really wasn’t.
So I decided to stop the haste and not to worry about the length of my To do -list.
I started to do one thing at a time instead. And after getting something done I said “Well done, Mari!“
I also created a habit to sit down for a while every now and then. Every day actually. Just for a minute or two.
Sit down, take a few deep breaths, look around and think what’s good in life at that very moment.
My To do -list is still as long as it was a year ago.
The difference is that I don´t feel that I´m in a hurry anymore.
I’m more mindful and less stressful.
And the moments I used for worrying my constant haste, I nowadays use for calming down.
Peace of mind, that’s the best medicine against haste.
