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


Dog walks



Building furniture

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?

  1. Hurrying through dog walks (especially if you have a baby with you!) is a disaster. It took me a long time to realize this.


  2. I can’t believe how big M is getting. Such a sweet babyface. šŸ˜€ 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. šŸ˜€


    1. 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.
