Slow Down. Stop to smell the flowers!

Do yourself a favour, WORLD...

Heed this life mantra: "Slow Down... To Do More." My one advice to my near and dear, my family, to everyone I know, to my blog readers and to myself.

There's just too much going on in the world. There's just too much happening around everyone. Is it worth the stress to keep up with it all? I think not. Instead, give yourself space to breathe easy.

B - R - E - A - T - H - E

Learn to say NO. You don't have to watch every movie, download every song, try every restaurant, check out every sale, read every new book, get your hands on every new gizmo, attend every event, get every new app, crack every level of every game... you don't have to do everything.

Life is not measured by the breaths we take...

...but by the moments that take our breath away.

Say YES to yourself more often. Enjoy nature. Cherish your relationships. Laugh more often. Even at silly things. Listen to your fav. song loud. Do what you like doing more often. Sleep in on weekends. Try yoga. Meditate. Swim. Walk. Run. Gym. Cycle down a slope. Kiss the breeze as you go!

Ditch the guilt. The recession is over. Yes indeed! You can enjoy fine food with a glass of good (pour beverage of choice here)... without giving your banker a coro thrombo!

I'm not saying turn into a bag of lazy bones or a day dreamer. Be alert. Be active. But be organised. Madness is good. Chaos is not. Slow down... to do more. Smile at the mirror. Walk in the rain. Stop to say thank you... to smell the flowers. Celebrate life today. Wake up and smell the coffee - some other day.

For now, just let go a little. Pause for inner peace. 
Take a chill pill. Take a break. Take it easy on yourself.


... your ...
