Small Life, Slow Life: 17/100 {Take your MEDS.}

This is an exercise in Slow that the author recommends.

I’m reading Slow by Brooke McAlary and this little tiny bomb she dropped just blew my mind:

Behavioral consultant Nicholas Bate refers to this regular checking in as “taking your MEDS,” or, more specifically, paying attention to:

  • Mindfulness
  • Exercise
  • Diet
  • Sleep

Wait.

Is there anything in the world that those four things can’t fix?

Mindfulness. Exercise. Diet. Sleep.

Have I just been making this too complicated for thirty-plus years?!

(By the way, if you haven’t checked out this book but you read this blog, you need this book. It’s the book I would have written myself had I actually been disciplined enough. Go get it. Or…check it out from the library!)
