Message Take time to pause

When we live in an unconscious, automated way, we become the product of our environment. We react, rather than respond. Pausing gives you space to:

  • Prevent you from acting on anger or other destructive impulses that ruin relationships and lives.
  • Break bad habits
  • Find clarity about what’s really going on
  • Make wiser decisions based on the needs of the moment
  • Re-align your actions in life to your core values
  • Think less, worry less, and be more

Reacting without thinking is easy – it’s the path of least resistance. Pausing is harder – it’s a skill that needs to be trained, a virtue to be developed.

Thanks for having me
