Busy-ness is Laziness

Busy-ness is Laziness | Unplug | Scoop.it
Tune in this Thursday at 10 am MST/12 pm EST for a conversation with +Waylon Lewis about integrating mindfulness and meditation into our daily lives and how these tools can improve our business and personal relationships and success.
Susan Taylor's insight:

If you want to improve your business, personal relationships and all around success, you need to do what many consider to be the "soft" stuff -- meditation and mindfulness.  But "soft" is the new "hard".  Living a life of busy-ness is nothing more than procrastination.  In fact, it's downright lazy.

 

Waylon Lewis calls himself a "Dharma Brat" and shares with us his views about integrating mindfulness and meditation into our hectic daily lives and the benefits we can gain from doing so.

 

So if you're "running around, clicking lots of buttons online", hit the pause button and watch this 8-mintue video where Lewis leads a practical (and fun) meditation which will help you to limit distractions and come back to the present moment.

On Taking Time to Slow Down

On Taking Time to Slow Down | Unplug | Scoop.it

"As the Zen saying goes, you should meditate 20 minutes a day, unless you’re really busy—in which case you should meditate an hour. Perhaps all the pressures I’m dealing with in my life right now make this the exact right moment to unplug and dedicate a substantial period of time to meditation."

craig daniels's insight:

As I read this post I let out a huge sigh and everything stopped, just for a moment but it was noticeable. My thoughts stopped racing, my shoulders stopped being tight and my breathing evened-out as my heart filled with compassion.


At times it hard to believe that we are not "busy." We can live with a balance in our lives that allows us real happiness and not just real distraction.


Elana has written such a wonderfully simple and peaceful post, please take a moment to unplug and sit with it for a moment.
