Slow Down

Slow down, you move too fast...
You got to make the morning last...

{Simon and Garfunkel - 59th Street Bridge Song}

I am always on the go. 
Do this. Do that. Adventure here. Adventure there. 

This past week, though, my body made me slow down. Some random health things and a few days where I was forced to slow down. 

It's ok to spend four days on the couch.
It's ok to barely move for four days.
It's ok to binge watch an entire season of Grace & Frankie in one day.
It's ok to just be meh.
It's ok to be bored and lazy.

Granted, it shouldn't take a health scare to make me slow down, but I for sure learned from this - slowing down is a good thing! Sometimes, the next adventure can wait.

I hope you are feeling better!!! I'm so glad you got some rest. We are bad about being forced into rest by sickness too! :(

Slowing down is so good for the brain. You can almost feel it decompress. HOpe you are feeling better, though.

I hope you're feeling better. It is good to take it easy once in awhile, you're super active and adventurous!! I just started watching Grace & Frankie, I think I'm up to Episode 5, season 1. Love it!

Didn't know that was Simon & Garfunkel's song! It's hard to slow down when you're an active person (am speaking from experience:)), sometimes even torturous! Hope you'll soon recuperate!

We all need rest and down time, Tama! I binged watched Frankie and Grace recently too! They crack me up, but I thought they were funnier last season.
