When we’re used to the go-go-go, fast forward pace that this modern-day society creates for us, slowing down even for a second feels almost painful.

Amazon same day delivery.
Instant access to information and the answers to our questions with our phones or the internet.
Text messages, instant messages, almost everyone carrying a phone in their pockets.
We stream music, movies, tv shows, podcasts all day.

Maybe you’re finding yourself in the same headspace – wishing you could slow down and be still, but scared of what you’ll find when it’s just you with nothing to distract you.
This time I’m going to switch things up for you a bit and instead of giving you more to fill your busy brain, I’m going to help you clear it.

Take a deep breath and press play.
You’ve got this.
