Not A Model Weekly Mantra - Slow Down

Slow down. Do less. Act like an ant climbing up a stalk of celery. Relish in the nothing. Act like a child on summer vacation.

This week's mantra is all about savouring some kind of moment. Time seems to race by, even when the weather scorches and the backyards fill with friends. There is no way to stop it, so we might as well enjoy it.

“That is my problem with life, I rush through it, like I'm being chased. Even things whose whole point is slowness, like drinking relaxing tea. When I drink relaxing tea I suck it down as if I'm in a contest for who can drink relaxing tea the quickest.” - Miranda July
