Next time you catch yourself rushing, stressing, worrying, and driving your blood pressure through the roof, remember that…
Urgency is a choice.
And urgency is a symptom.
You can get to the root cause of urgency via your mindset.
Next time this happens, PAUSE.
Ask yourself: why am I rushing? Why am I stressing? Why am I worrying?
TAKE a DEEP BREATH.
By breathing, you create space to think.
With pausing and taking a breath, you invoke the parasympathetic aspect of your nervous system to slow down your heart rate and lower your blood pressure. As a result, you can make a different choice.
Choose to slow down.
Anchor yourself in THIS moment.
Remember that Urgency is a choice that does not always serve you well.
