Practical Ways to Slow Down and Enjoy Life

Have you ever noticed how you can look super busy but not actually get anything done? One of the most mind-boggling truths I've discovered in my short "slow life" journey is that you really accomplish the same amount of work whether you choose to be "busy" all the time or if you choose to slow down and enjoy the moment. The only difference, really, is whether you're going to approach life with a stressed out mind or one with peace.
