What’s the Rush?

Posted on

I fell asleep on the couch again. Its 5 am and I am in a rush to the gym so I threw my clothes on the couch then realized my roommate wouldn’t want them there because it looks messy. I thought to myself “fuck that! I shouldn’t do that because I don’t want to be messy. I want to do it for myself.” So I folded them neatly rushed into my bedroom and threw them into the bed. I am turning out my bedroom door and in the corner of my eye I see the clothes, neatly folded and stacked, tumbling into a sprawl all over my bed. By the time my brain processes this It’s too late I’m already walking out the door of my house on the way to the gym. We are constantly rushing through life, that’s when we get sloppy. It takes 1-3 seconds of controlled focus at everything we do, even breathing. And our life improves dramatically. Seriously just 1-2 seconds and my clothes could be stacked neatly on my bed. Instead I will have to re-fold them. Just 1 full second longer to get that deep breath which slows you down and gives you energy. Do it now take a slow deep breath, BREATHE DEEP. How do you feel? Magnify that feeling times 100 throughout the day. “Hey that’s great I never thought of it like that… I’m in a rush I’ve gotta go!”
