Are you always in a rush? Never enough time to get things done?
We seem to be addicted to time. Clocks on every device we own. Plus the watches we wear to keep us on time.
“Oh my God would you hurry up!! We’re going to be late!”
Ever said that? Ever heard it said to you?
How about this one.
Do you wake up moments before your alarm clock goes off?
Want to know why?
You are both conditioned to wake up and afraid of being late and missing work or other appointments.
Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up when your body actually wants you to?
It seems we always have somewhere we are supposed to be or something we should be doing.
What are we to do? How can you not be a slave to time?
Here some ideas.
- Get rid of excess clocks
- Watch less TV
- Enjoy what you are doing
- Focus on the task at hand
- Plan ahead-make lunch the night before; get your clothes ready
- Clear your to-do list. Stop taking on new projects.
- Say no when asked to do stuff-It’s okay
- Realize that life is about enjoying yourself
Start living a more minimalist lifestyle. This would include things like getting rid of useless stuff. Spending less money on needless items and enjoying items that have a purpose and meaning.
A minimalist lifestyle is about enjoying life for the sake of life itself. You have to simplify all areas of your life if you want to stop being a slave to time.
You have to put yourself first.
Not work. Not other commitments. Yes these things are important, but not as important as you and your family.
It is okay to slow down, relax, and take time for you.
Make the commitment to yourself and do it.
