The world is in a forced slow (shut) down but that doesn’t mean we’re relaxed or living slowly or enjoying each moment. Chances are you’re mostly freaking stressed.
Me too. This isn’t a blog about that.
Instead, I have found some specific day-to-day things that seem to go a lot better when I just slow the heck down and refrain from “forcing it.” And I included some unrelated baby pictures from our social isolation.
Doing my hair
When I put M down for a nap or bedtime
Planning a trip or vacation
Packing for a trip
Clipping my nails
Editing a blog post or article
I’ve tried speeding through all of these tasks and things have gone terribly awry. This is a tested list. Lol
What tends to go better when you slow the heck down?

Hurrying through dog walks (especially if you have a baby with you!) is a disaster. It took me a long time to realize this.
Yes yes yes. And the dogs aren’t properly exercised so it feels like a waste anyway! Ha!
Gosh, you have a very very cute quarantine buddy!! For me it’s just general home up-keeping. It’s the perfect time for getting the things done we’ve been putting off.
Hahaha, thank you!
General home up-keeping is great! I love getting that kind of stuff done!
Math! 100 percent! Agreed with all of these and LOVE the baby photos! What a cutie!
If I rush through math I will 100% mess it up. Hahaha.
Aw, love all the photos. Yeah, slowing down is definitely something I should do more often, with just life in general.
Most of the time things go much much better when I slow down. Ha!
I can’t believe how big M is getting. Such a sweet babyface. 😀 I am oddly slow-moving but rush through things, if that makes any sense at all. Slowing down is something that I am working on but haven’t been incredibly successful with it either. 😀
Ughhhh, I know! When she was a newborn I couldn’t imagine her getting bigger or more mobile. She rolls all. the. time. now! Yikes! I rush some stuff and go soooo slowly through other things. Unfortunately I rush the wrong stuff usually. Ha.
Keeping up with house projects for sure! And Mac cannot be rushed outside.
Hahahaha. I don’t know that I’ll ever learn not to rush my dogs. Ha.
