In our hyper-stressed, overly-demanding world, we often feelbusy and even vigorous at times, rushing from one obligation to the next. Butif we can stop and breathe for one second, we might realize that while wethought we were running towards what we wanted, we were actually jogging incircles.

Simple reminders, like the words above, can change thecourse of our day – you can use this list as a personal mantra, or focus on oneword for each day of the week. The goal is to remember that motion without intentionis counterproductive, so give yourself a few moments each day to set your truedirection before you start running like crazy.
