This is related to being present, but taking it a step farther. Whatever you’re doing, be fully present … and also appreciate every aspect of it, and find the enjoyable aspects. For example, when washing dishes, instead of rushing through it as a boring chore to be finished quickly, really feel the sensations of the water, the suds, the dishes. It can really be an enjoyable task if you learn to see it that way. The same applies to other chores — washing the car, sweeping, dusting, laundry, or even just going for a walk — anything you do. Life can be so much more enjoyable if you learn this simple habit.
We’ll all get a chance to hit the reset button as we come out of this, slowing down could just be our secret weapon, because when we take our time with things, it normally always produces our best work, our strongest friendships and deepest relationships.
