Lesson 23: Slow Down

This guided workbook will be your companion to lesson twenty-three from Oprah's Lifeclass.


What daily task have you been doing hurriedly? Today, how can you slow down and do it with full attention?


Where are you shortchanging or ignoring yourself in your rush to get things done? Give yourself a few minutes of kind attention, and see how much more you have to give others.


How are you taking care of yourself so that you can be available to take care of the people in your life?


Make a comprehensive "to do" list. What do you not want to do? Why?


"Never put off till tomorrow what you can cancel today." Are you trying to force yourself to do things you actively hate? What do you have to lose by canceling them?


When was the last time you took advantage of what Oprah calls "the sacred in the ordinary"? What did you do?


Write down your Slow Down Plan. What does it look like? If you are finding yourself going through the days in a whirlwind of chaos, where will you eliminate one thing from each day?
