Process of Slowing down

After my first blog, there were queries, where people just wanted to know the process on HOW TO SLOW DOWN.
The best part is, the realization to slow down. This is the first step towards any change. When you happen to recognize and realize a fact, your subconscious mind is already at work and unknowingly the process of change has already started. So Congratulations to all of you for this acceptance.
Now, let us come to the process. All I am asking is 15 minutes of your time in 24-hour duration, which I hope is reasonable, and you must devote this for your overall well-being.
Now you would wonder what is to be done in these fifteen minutes. I would say ‘” NOTHING- JUST NOTHING”.
In these fifteen minutes, I want you to be in a comfortable position, whether sitting or lying down, is your choice, but yes, in a place where you are not concerned about your surroundings.
1. Now close your eyes, and observe your breathing. Just observe, whether short or deep or normal, and keep observing. You will find a rhythm that is more pleasing than others. Keep breathing in that pattern.
2. Hear the sounds around you, try to concentrate on different sounds one by one, and try to identify the source of these sounds. Now, select and pay attention to the sound that you resonate with, the most.
3. Try to identify the smells around you. You will be able to identify different smells. Select the smell that you like and concentrate on it.
Now you are in a space where you are breathing pleasantly, listening to the sounds that are pleasurable, and smelling something that you like. All in all, you’re in a beautiful tranquil space. STAY THERE.
You may start with fifteen minutes, and slowly once you get the practice then do more, whenever you wish to. It is a simple, yet very powerful routine that does not require any external support. Even if you are in the middle of anarchy, it will still make you at ease.
In the upcoming blogs, I will explain the science behind this.

    Good one ! I have found that slowing down your impulsive actions or reactions does a lot of good and even saves the situation no matter whether you are in a social situation or at a high pressure work situation (similar to ‘taking a step back’ to assess the situation calmly). It does not have to be done by retreating to a quiet place nor take 15 minutes, one should be able to slow down or pause then and there for a few seconds. I’m sure this can be done with practice and efficiently in sync with all that’s going on around you !

    Sadly, art of slowing down is missing in today fast acked jet age. There is so much competition around that nobody wants to be left behind in the rat race.
    People do slow down, but its not volunatrily to reflect upon, but by default (extreme end as nature gives back).

    Covid taught us more about slowing down, and I concur that its the need of the hour to think, take a pause and reflect upon.

    This is perhaps the first time, i was actually able to sit down and be in peace for 10 min. I used to always wonder how to sit still doing nothing and most importantly not to be engaged in random thoughts. Your technique of first concentrating on sound and then aroma, and finally narrowing down to only two elements which one finds most pleasing worked wonders. I will practice to longer sit for longer duration and at the same time, hoping to learn some more from you.

    Thank you so much for this insight.

    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or
    maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My website addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly
    benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free
    to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Terrific blog by the way!
