Let go and pause

Let go and pause

It’s easy to get caught up in the pace of life and forget about taking time to reflect on what matters most. The reality is that slowing down adds richness to your life instead of the hustle and drive to be busier than yesterday.  When we’re constantly rushing around, we miss out on the important things in life. We lose sight of what’s going on around us and how our actions can affect others.

The truth is that slowing down and taking a moment to reflect on your life gives you an opportunity to re-prioritize your goals and values, to take a step back from the hustle and hustle of daily life and ask yourself “Am I happy?”

The answer may surprise you.

We all want to live our best lives. We want happiness, love, family, friends and freedom — and how do we actually make sure we get those things? The answer is simple: by prioritizing them in our lives first.

One of the most common questions we get from clients is “how do I find time to do everything?”

The answer lies in how you start thinking about your time and energy. There are two ways to look at your life: by default or design.

When we live by default, we’re living in reaction to what others expect from us or our environment. As a result, we feel like we’re constantly behind, putting out fires and trying to fit things into an already full schedule. When we live by design, however, we proactively create the life we want for ourselves by intentionally prioritizing what matters most.

Time is the most valuable thing we have, so it’s important to use it wisely. During your pause we guide through process of sabbatical, from the first step of slowing down to self reflect all the way to what to do when you’re ready to go back and rejoin the world.

If you’re ready for a sabbatical from your hectic schedule, here are four things we will help you do:

Rest: we know that most of you are tired, so very tired (we are too). A conscious pause will remind you to deeply rest even though there will be some resistance to this.

Re-prioritize: Take an inventory of everything that’s going on in your life right now – work deadlines, social obligations, family commitments – and determine which ones are important or urgent versus those that can wait until later.

Reflect: taking time to dig into the “why’s” of your decisions (past and current) with some curated questions is a great way to learn more about your priorities.

Re-entry: this is something that a lot of people don’t think about…when you’ve changed or shifted some of your ways of doing and being it can be uncomfortable to fit back into parts of your life so we help with ways to feel connected to your new self.

So now the question for you is…when will you let go and pause?
