Are You Living at the Right Pace?

The pace by which you live the moments of each day is an oft neglected source of stress. A dizzying pace can push us to act and react mindlessly. We make more mistakes, we may bypass the beauty of the day, and by nightfall, we know not where the time has gone.

How can you tell if the pace of the day is right for you?

If you’re bored, you could use more challenge, and you need to pick up the pace. If you’re mentally and physically exhausted at the end of the day, your pace and workload are overwhelming.

If you lose your focus or feel restless at different points in the day, you may need a break. We can get so accustomed to a fast pace that we may never think about slowing down in order to do things right.

We can run a treadmill for five or more days of the week and long for our brief weekends and distant holidays. I think weekends and holidays are great for spending extended time with the people you love.
