When you’re busy it’s easy for moments to slip by unnoticed.
To lose hours and even days to the busyness as you work tirelessly from sun up to sunset, giving your attention to who and what screams loudest.
To give up on ever having any time for yourself, as you flop into bed most nights exhausted and preparing to get up and do it all again.
Living a life that consists of keeping up with demands, trying to please others while counting down the days until your next holiday.
Your goal becomes to survive and you stop pausing, noticing and truly living many sweet opportunities.
You tell yourself you don’t have time to stop, indulge and have more fun. You must keep going or you won’t keep up.
What if all you needed was 30 seconds? 30 seconds to enjoy some feel good moments? Could you give yourself that?
Could you take 30 seconds for….
An intimate moment to pause and study the face of your little one as she speaks.
A restorative moment to recharge on the spot by taking three deep belly breaths each time you return to your desk.
A tantalising moment to lean in to smell your coffee before taking that first sip.
A precious moment to connect more deeply with another by holding that hug just 30 seconds longer.
A grounding moment with nature to look up in the tree and watch the bird you can hear chirping.
A spontaneous moment as you wind down your car window and feel your hair blow wildly all around your face.
A decadent moment as you savour the taste of chocolate slowly melting upon your tongue.
30 second opportunities throughout YOUR day to be more present and aware as you savour the sweet joys of life.
Do you have 30 seconds?
How can you use it to amplify life’s sweet goodness?
