The benefits of slow living are numerous and can significantly improve one’s overall well-being. By slowing down and appreciating the present moment, we reduce stress, increase mindfulness, and improve our relationships with others. Additionally, slow living can lead to greater purpose and fulfillment as we learn to prioritize what truly matters to them and let go of modern society’s unnecessary distractions and pressures. Overall, embracing slow living can lead to a happier, healthier, and more meaningful life.
Slowing Down My Mornings
I’ve been starting some of my mornings sitting in my backyard gazing off into the woods
Listening to the birds, crickets, and other insects is a symphony of nature’s silence in its splendor
The gentle breeze stirs the leaves on the tree, as sunlight infuse them with such a verdant green color slowly shifting towards amber- scarlet hues
I feel the gentle breeze on my skin; a hint of coolness, subtleties of autumn
My awareness rests upon delicate spiderwebs that shimmer as the sun catches and reflects minuscule worlds in each droplet of dew
I hear a hawk, more near now, searching for prey in the morning sunlight
There is so much promise in the morning light
