I have spent most my life running at a fast pace, busy busy busy, even on vacation or other leisure time I felt hyped up, and this is without the help of drugs. It was like I wasn't even taking the time to breathe. And as of late I am taking time to breathe, taking life in, enjoying every moment, reflecting, spending time with friends, sharing, loving, giving, just being wherever I am. It's nice to just be. I feel like I am getting more from life and from relationships, and I am definitely more calm.
Maybe you should try it.
