Many of us have experienced Life in the FAST Lane and the problems that often accompany that life: stress, inadequate diet, limited sleep, strained family relationships, increased personal debt, depression and the onset of health problems.
Then along came the potentially deadly Corona virus. Suddenly and without warning we found ourselves thrust into Life in the SLOW Lane. We were encouraged and finally ordered to stay at home and to avoid personal contact with others.
Interestingly, this sudden change to slow down brought with it many of the problems we encountered in the Fast Lane list above: stress, inadequate diet, excess sleep, strained family relationships, increased personal debt, depression and the onset of health problems.
It appears that we don’t do well when life is too fast or too slow. There must be some middle ground that would work well. Perhaps we should be “trending” toward that life?
