Hi everyone, Yvonne Heath here with Love Your Life to Death.
I have been sharing my life lessons learned along the way;
the wonderful knowledge and wisdom that has been shared with me
over the last many years of interviewing so many people, having great conversations and from my nursing career. I have learned so much
and continue to learn. One thing became clear when I stepped away from my nursing career really started to watch everyone.
Wow. busy-ness is truly an epidemic.
We do not have the capacity to sit still, to be present. We talk about mindfulness and yet I see what many try to jam pack in a day (even in a pandemic!). It is just too much. We don't have time for meaningful conversations. We don't carve out time to just sit and be present. As soon as kids have a moment out come the iPads or cell phones.
We wonder why we have mental health issues? Our brains are so overloaded and overstimulated. It truly is time for change. When they tell me all the things they're doing, I simply ask, "Oh, are you happy?" They respond, 'What are you talking about? I don't have time to think about that question!" I think that's very sad. If you do not have time to ask,
"Am I happy in my life?" I think it's time to slow down. And now my question to you is, "If not, what can you do to change that?"
There are so many choices in our world and so many activities our children can do and we can do. How wonderful. But where can we carve out time to just be? We really need to find it if we want to have joy in our lives. We want our children to have joy in their lives and be able to just slow down and ask those questions too.
"Am I happy?" Something to think about!
