The Art Of Slowing Down
In this episode, Rachel talks about her absolute inability to slow down. After a very intense few years culminating with back-to-back retreats and trainings, her body has started giving her serious signals to work at a slower pace. How do you slow down when moving fast is all you know? Rachel wraps her head around the fact that there is never a time that she is not working. Not on her honeymoon, not after having a baby, not even when she got so sick she had to get a steroid injection in her butt! She talks about how leading her latest yoga teacher training while incredibly sick finally allowed her the space to slow down, take a real vacation, and make the decision to go on a very overdue maternity leave. And it also helped her to realize that the world will not stop if she is not constantly on the move.Our life’s purpose is not something that comes easy for us, it is something we have to work at. Rachel discusses her own life purpose - which just may be learning to slow down and sit with her emotions. Tune in to this episode and then find a way for yourself to slow down this week! Put everything away. Be with your children. Cook dinner. Whatever you are focusing on, immerse yourself in that fully. Be wherever you are - because that is the only place you can be.
