The world around us is a fascinating place. However, many of us are too busy to notice a lot of interesting and peculiar details. If we were to get into the habit of slowing down and taking a look around, we might enjoy our day-to-day lives far more.

That’s where the popular ‘Stranger Things in Stunning World’ Facebook group comes in. The members of this online community share some of the most impressive things that they’ve come across, from wholesome images and acts of kindness to strange events that might change your perspective.

Pictolic got in touch with Jodi Wellman, MAPP, who shed some light on why we rush so much in life and what we can do to be more present and notice our surroundings more. Wellman is a speaker, author, and leadership coach, as well as the founder of the ‘Four Thousand Mondays’ project. You’ll find the thoughts she shared with us below.

According to Wellman, people value productivity and efficiency. This “contributes to the ‘go go go-ness’ of our days,” she told Bored Panda via email.

“But I think many of us are caught up in what’s known as an existential vacuum, which is characterized by a nagging sense of meaninglessness in life. When we’re feeling unfulfilled in life, we get pretty savvy at filling the void with manufactured busy work,” the founder of the ‘Four Thousand Mondays’ project said.

“We might want to be suspicious of the purpose task-rushing is serving for us and start connecting to a deeper sense of meaning and purpose in life.”

Wellman noted that, from her perspective, remembering that we’re all going to die can help us be more present in the here and now.

“We are temporary, finite, ‘limited time only!’ This ancient practice known as memento mori works because it’s only when we contemplate our mortality that we snap to attention and realize all we have in this momentary existence is This Moment,” she explained to Bored Panda.

“I want everyone to count their Mondays; we get about 4,000 on average, and tuning into however many we have left can open our eyes up to what matters, what’s special right here and right now.”

Telling ourselves to slow down to appreciate life more is easier said than done. However, if we make the change, we potentially avoid a lot of stress. Physician Susan Biali Haas, M.D., has a range of strategies for people to try to help them stop rushing so much and slow down. She notes that the first step is becoming aware that you’re in the habit of rushing in the first place.

“When you catch yourself doing it, ask yourself if it’s really necessary. Are the extra seconds or minutes that you might gain worth all the tension and stress?” the physician writes on Psychology Today that, most often, it’s not worth rushing about everywhere. The next step is to slow down your pace consciously.
