When you do less, you’re sending a message that you are enough, just by being you.

When you do less, you make space for more to happen.

When you do less, you make space for bigger shifts and greater insights to drop into your lap.

When you do less, you open into an awareness of how you want to be living, of what’s not working for you, of who matters in your life.

When you do less, you fill your cup.

When you do less, you make space for boldness.

When you do less, your heal your adrenals.

When you do less, you find clarity of mind.

When you do less, you let the answers drop in. When they’re ready.

When you do less, you find stillness in your spirit. (And you LOVE it.)

When you do less, you get to spend time with people you love. Or places you love. Or puppies.

When you do less, you breathe more deeply.

When you do less, you worry less.

When you do less, you become more.

When you do less, you become whole again.

When you do less, you make space to listen to your intuition.

When you do less, you make space listen to your guidance.

When you do less, your internal compass stops spinning, and points you in the right direction.

When you do less, you’re giving yourself permission to be a human being. Just be. Don’t do.

When you do less, you slow down, and savour it.

When you do less, you make friends with time, and realise the clock is on your side.

When you do less, you appreciate more. You laugh more. You smile more. You sleep more. (HINT: Sleeping is good.)

When you do less, you let yourself unwind.

When you do less, you truly let go of your internal struggle.

When you do less, you give yourself permission to just be you. 

How do you do less?

The trick to doing less is to make the commitment to do less. Now.

Which really means, there’s no trick at all.


What do you need to do less of?

Which area of your life needs your stillness, instead of more attention?

 How can you DO less, so you can BE more? 

What about if you just trusted that the answers you seek will come when you’re ready? What would that mean to you?

HINT: You already know the answers.

Biggest love,

      Hey Jade, I so agree. One of my closest friends daughter is dying of cancer – she is only 8 yrs old – and it has been a wake-up call to me. It is so important to have down time – life goes-by so fast – we may as well make it as enjoyable as possible! Mel xx
