    You are so right, slowing down is so necessary, kind of crucial for me. I love your tips too. Eating is a great one. I heard somewhere that you should chew your drinks (juices and smoothies) and drink your food. Which basically means chewing it til it’s liquid. So true. Great video as always, you look so great! Love the sweater and necklace and your makeup looks so pretty! I feel like I do everything in slow motion lately haha

      Thanks, Sarah! I put on extra makeup for this video. 🙂 I always wear makeup, but it’s usually shades of brown and beige. The sweater is from Old Navy and the necklace is from the Loft (probably my favorite store).

    Slowing down to cook is almost as important as slowing down to eat. I know I sometimes get very keyed up and try to cook, and my meals don’t come out as well as the ones I slow down and take the time to pay attention to.

      Very true…and if you rush through a recipe, you could mess it up. Also, when you make your own meals, you’re slowing down instead of grabbing something gross from the drive thru (and probably healthier too).
