Slow Down

Take a moment to be
In the moment
Chew your food
Listen
To your neighbor to
Your family to
Yourself
To God
Read widely
Breathe deeply
Pause
Walk
Hold hands and
Hug and
Kiss
Exercise
Your body
Your mind
Create
Give
Serve
Play
Dream
Cook and Clean
Chores need to get done
Too
You have time but
Only so much
Don’t waste what’s precious by
Being in a rush
