In this final episode of 2015, I talked about starting the new year in a very revolutionary way – with stopping. What if 2016 could become the year you learned to say no to the good in order to make room for the great? What if you learned to enjoy the moments instead of rushing through them? What if you actually experienced delight? What if you finally discovered a sane rhythm of work and rest?
It’s your year. Start with stopping.
Resources for learning how to stop:
Headspace.com – This is the mediation site I have been using to help train my busy mind to slow down (they have an app which is very easy to use and pretty awesome). “Andy” talks you through ten minutes of meditation per day).
