That title of this episode is a direct quote from Jason.
The truth is that the topic — Why it’s important to slow down (and how it can inspire creativity) — was my idea. And he wasn’t immediately on board when I brought it up.
But as the conversation continued, I think he saw the light. He remembered that when he allows himself to slow down, he’s able to come up with different ways of doing things.
I don’t think slowing down comes easily to most of us. Neither does allowing ourselves to do less. This week’s episode is intended to give you permission for both.
It might mean:
- Posting on social media less and not feeling a shred of guilt about it
- Letting your yoga practice be your favorite restorative pose
- Listening to an audiobook that makes you feel good (I just listened to Matt Haig’s The Comfort Book and loved it)
- Putting less on your to-do list; letting the non-necessary things fall away
Did I mention not feeling guilty about any of these things but celebrating YOU and your time? That’s a key part of all of this.
I hope you will listen to the podcast where we share more ideas.
