Today´s practice is a simple reminder to stop and pause from time to time. Not only does it give you balance in your nervous system and makes you feel better, it also makes you more effective.

Today’s poem by S.C. Lourie of Butterflies and Pebbles, is a reminder to not get too obsessive with the to-do-lists and allow some time to what truly matters. You can follow her on https://www.facebook.com/sclouriewriter

Go into this week

with the attitude that

your peace,

your health of mind,

and your heart

mean more than

getting everything else done.

That your smile matters,

That feeling rested matters.

That holding the hand

of your loved one's matter.

So pause lots,

function at a pace

that doesn’t pull you apart.

Honour the things that

make you feel good inside,

the things that make you feel alive.

Give time to those things this week.

Make time the gift it is,

by giving it to what really matters to you.

The best way to ensure a thriving ageing life is to look after yourself now. If you look after your mental and physical well being now, and create some healthy habits you are setting yourself up for not only longevity but also a mental healthy life. Taking breaks is a great habit and I have come up with the idea, that one way I can help people age well is by offering them the opportunity to pause regularly no matter their age. I am posting The Pause for Life recordings on a regular basis on social media and will also leave audio copies here on my sub stack.
