Amidst the busyness in our lives, it is helpful to make time for some contemplation. Time and space to reflect on what has happened, what will happen and how we feel about it all.

There is always a place for fast thinking and decision-making. Have a think about your situations that suit it. Then consider the decisions you have to make that require deeper thought.

Next time you think a little bit deeper, notice how much rich detail you see and how that detail may help your decision-making.

These days, with our elderly dog Misty, our walks are shorter and slower. That gives us a chance to see old walks in a new light, noticing some extra details we used to miss.

We tend to think habitually. See if you can refine your thinking habits and pick your moments to think faster or slower.

Some contemplation may cause you to notice more and give your thinking more precision. It certainly beats rushing around all the time!
