In sports, there’s a theme: Slow down and don’t force it.
It’s like hitting a tennis ball, swinging a golf club, surfing a wave, swimming freestyle, snorkeling or cycling.
Slowing down is counterintuitive because we think speed means power, so we end up rushing. The truth is that speed is nothing without control.
The next time you are feeling short of time in the morning. Instead of rushing through an exercise routine and doing everything half-ass, pick three things and do them slowly and with maximum power. Maybe it’s one backbend, one warrior pose, and ten push-ups. That’s all. Three things done correctly, with your full attention will be more beneficial than ten things done in a rush.
