Do less. Be more

Posted on 08/06/2012

I find it hard to do less.So many options, opportunities, things going on around us, how do we pass them by and keep our space? Do we have to keep comparing ourselves to others and what they do? Isnt each of us unique?

Something is out there, someone asks, invites you to do something... Does that mean you have to do it?

Doing less, but with more purpose, and being more present, more mindful when we do something will ultimately be more fulfilling.

The other day I came across a tip for a good response to help manage your time when invited to do something. You could say, Yes, Id love to, but will have to check my diary and other commitments.

Its OK to leave some time blank in your diary.

Astrid is a complementary therapist based in Surrey. She works with women who feel like they're being pulled in a thousand directions (with work, family and social life), to give them an opportunity to take time out and focus on themselves, which ultimately makes them more productive and more in control when faced with the stresses life throws at them.
