Do you ever just want the world to S L O W .. D O W N a little, or a lot? It seems like this can be a never ending struggle some days, the rate at which others expect you to answer your phone, reply to your emails, finish your to do list and everything in between is relentless. If you share my desire to slow things down a little, you may be keen to use this little tool that has quickly become one of my best friends in the push back on the rush!
This amazing little tool is known by many names including auto responder, vacation message, out of office, or auto reply … and is easily found in your email system. It can become a powerful way to set boundaries, echo your life values and instantly reply to each and every one of your incoming messages. I suspect that the pressure and overwhelm of your inbox is a common concern for many!
So here is my current auto reply set up on my gmail using the Out of Office Settings:
HELLO and thank you so much for getting in touch ???
As someone who writes about self care, the importance of family and living a life based on the principles of joy, kindness and a slower pace than the norm … I wanted to let you know that I may not get back to you straight away.
It is my hope to S L O W the pace at which the world operates! LOL … lofty dream I know! I can only do my own little bit and it starts right here. I love emails, technology and social media however I don’t always reply quickly and it really is nothing personal.
If you need to contact me urgently please text me on 0419 416 228.
Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
Love + Light
