However, in the fits and starts of life, I think I am slowly getting better at realizing that the feeling of pending implosion should be a trigger to slow down, not speed up. Thinking that I will alleviate the pressure by accomplishing more has proven, on many occasions, to be counterproductive
Useful for all of us to remember. Running faster usually only tired you out more.
Even on days I’m not doing exercise between my work blocks, I take a 10 minute walk around the block. I leave the storm behind and come back feeling recharged. I’m ready to do hard work again.
