sophie’s been slowing it down lately. gone are her daily long walks and romps around the office. instead she prefers to meander down the sidewalk at a snails pace. at first, I found this annoying because I was on a time schedule. but then, I started to enjoy these lazy walks she was insisting on taking. in fact, it made me think about how structured and crunched my day is with work, blog, and other personal obligations are. each day, I want a glass of wine to celebrate my survival. of course, I don’t do that, but I kind of want it – or at least a giant cookie after dinner.
sophie’s insistence on walking slowly each day has got me thinking about slowing down my own rhythm. on one hand, I worry that slowing down my own schedule will stress me out even more because I’m not doing all the things I’ve signed up to do. on the other hand though, we all need a break now and then, and perhaps I’d be just fine if I wasn’t going at mock speed all the time! thoughts on sophie’s new way to curb stress?
