《Life Choices》Section ⅠPPT
Here are 6 simple tips for slowing down everyday life.
Don't do things you don't want to and cannot do
We all have habits getting a manicure，going to the solarium，ironing，shopping，watching TV，browsing the Internet，smoking，and so forth.We can save time and money by cutting these out，and 1 .
Do one thing at a time
Multitasking makes us nervous，and the day rushes by when we do it.If we drive then 2 ：no phone calls，no learning another language，no planning and thinking.Instead，you can enjoy driving: listening to the motor and your heart beat，looking out of the window and living in the moment.
Turn on the Internet and your phone for a certain amount of time a day，connect with others and then simply switch off.We won't lose business if we don't answer at once，but we might lose out for sure if we interrupt our work flow on one task to answer somebody else. 3
Use waiting time，not for stressful thinking，but for simple observations and enjoying details.Have you noticed how beautifully the car wash water dances down the windscreen? And how reflections change in the mirror during a traffic jam? When was the last time you smelled the roses? Or the last time you just looked into the eyes of your child? Have quality time with the people you love.When was the last time you were all dining at the table together without screens and distractions?
