How To Enjoy What You’re Doing

Slow down. It’s that simple. And that difficult!

We can feel lost and overwhelmed while doing something for a variety of reasons. It may be the task itself that seems distasteful.

Or it may be that the amygdala, the fearful part of the mind, is already chewing on all the things that need to be done next, robbing you of the pleasure of this moment.

It’s as easy, simple and difficult as pausing and slowing down.

There will be a moment where the amygdala starts screaming like the angry little kid it is, but then when nothing happens, it’ll get frustrated and stalk off. This leaves you alone to savor and even enjoy this moment, the only one that counts.
