Do Pause / You are not a To Do list | By Robert Poynton
Machines are designed to run constantly; people aren't. Our coping mechanisms are meditation apps, weekend breaks and annual holidays, but things soon revert. To prosper, we need more sustainable approach - an ability to pause.
Do Pause looks at the importance of this subtle yet powerful idea to communication, creativity, relationships - as well as our wellbeing and sanity. With pratical tools to help you create new habits or make more significant lifestyle choices, you'll discover ways to:
- Reset and regenerate
- Deepen your thinking and experiences
- Take back control of your time
- Reconnect with other people - and yourself
From taking a breath to taking a sabbatical, a pause can be many things. And the good news is, even just a small pause every now and again can make a real and lasting difference.
"When you press the pause button on a machine it stops. When you press the pause button on human beings, they start." Dov Seidman. Pausing is part of living and breathing. It allows you the space to notice new possibilities, question existing ways of acting or simply appreciate the life you are living. Discover the benefits of pauses - short or long, daily or annually, the forces that work against it, and learn practical ways to design more conscious pause in our lives.
