Day 26 9.4 PAUSE

High Holy Days Journey with Amichai Lau-Lavie: 40 ways in 40 days to find your focus

 

 

 

“Modern times often cause us to go on automatic pilot, continually multitasking and busying our lives with digital stimulation, information overload, and schedules that stress our brains and overwhelm our lives. Finding time to pause amidst this chaos has become an urgent need few of us take the time to satisfy.”

From The Buddha’s Brain

Last Sabbath of the year, and at least a good part of it is spent reading this book that I picked up a few months ago.

A reminder: to relish the pause, to unplug and take this concept of Sabbath/sabotage seriously. Fight the temptation to overcome the email excess. Turn off the machines.

 

Pause. And consider – what will next year’s Sabbaths look like? What is something I can think, plan, dream, plot, put into action mode right now so that the seeds I plant nourish my time all through this coming year?

 

Pause. Nap. Sabbath.
