The motorway of life.
We have a slow lane and a fast lane.

We might be tempted to think that life in the fast lane is more exciting and more fun, but is this actually true?
If you drive in the fast lane, you don't actually get to enjoy the scenery.
You are only thinking about getting to your exit as quickly as possible, without appreciating the journey itself.
How would it be if you applied the same thinking to life?
Do you want to rush along to your own exit as quickly as you can, without actually appreciating life itself?
I don't think so!
So how about trying life in the slow lane?
Take your foot off the gas, relax and enjoy all the beautiful scenery.
Please don't  race to the exit.

Thich Nhat Hanh 

Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present moment. 
It is the continuous practice of touching life deeply in every moment of daily life. To be mindful is to be truly alive, present and at one with those around you and with what you are doing. We bring our body into harmony while we wash the dishes, drive the car or take our morning shower.
