The Un-hurried life

The un-hurried life.

Do you take time to sit and sip coffee 
(or eat ice-cream)?
Do you ever drive in the slow lane?
Walking instead of driving?
Being in a hurry is a very stressful lifestyle...
and when we are stressed, 
our body gets sick more easily.
Live and enjoy the un-hurried life.

Stay Frugal,
Daniela

I agree, each of us should put de-stressing on the top of our to do list! Enjoyed the photos...Home Sweet Home?

Good Afternoon Daniela, You are absolutely right, this is such good advice, we should all slow down and enjoy life. I learnt to do this when I lived in Cyprus everything was "siga, siga", slowly, slowly.
Best wishes
Daphne

I'm such a slow poke! I inherit it from my father. It's good to know it's OK.

Great pics. Looks like it was rather chilly.

It would be nice to de-stress and take things a bit more slowly. Your photos are great, Dani.

I can't wait to see more pictures from your lovely trip back home. These pictures look amazing. It looks like you had a wonderful time. Welcome back!

GREAT idea, Dani- Most of us need to slow our pace down and just live in the moment- xo Diana

Slowing down is a great suggestion, Dani. I'm slowing down more and more. A fast-paced life is the LAST thing I want right now. I'm holding onto this time with my little ones while I have it.

XOXO,
Meredith

I am looking forward to some beautiful and picturesque insights from your trip, Dani! These shots are amazing and I bet you learned a lot about slowing down while you were away. If these were the sights you saw, I think I want to get my passport and finally take that trip my daughter is always suggesting! Such intriguing scenery.

Dearest Daniela,
You are so right about this subject! I am so happy that I lived through yesterday... Our painters left around noon; exterior done and I had the entire house clean and tidy and was about to start cooking our dinner for 12. Pieter's Monday Night Club met at our home and I was able to pull it all off. Went to bed tired but satisfied. Today is a relaxing day...
Hugs,
Mariette

You're right. We are living too "fast", even in the South where things tend to be a little bit slower-paced. It's the "American Way" sadly.

I'm loving all the images you have captured. #truebeauty
