We depend on time for everything. We are so conditioned to run on or by it, that there’s a sense of jealousy or confusion for those who don’t know or care. But what is time? We as a society measure it in linear terms. We adhere to this linear definition so tightly that we find it difficult to even be open to a different interpretation.
How do we find the time to do all that we hope? Can we manifest more, or bend it? What does it mean to “spend our time wisely” and why is it so important to “stop to smell the roses?”
This month we’ve posted stories discussing the construct and chronology of time. Ie: Where do time and place intersect? Time management and what we do with it. How to center yourself. Also, how to incorporate better time-based practices into your existing lifestyle to be happier and healthier.
Mind Key believes that we all have the god-given right to explore and enjoy our passions and talents. We also believe that we manifest the energy to do so by doing that which we love. In doing that which we love, we open up doors for it to sustain us financially, physically and spiritually. (Mind Key also offers some great resources and programs to make that happen in “real time” … forgive the pun!).
In preparation for this issue, we asked our writers to take a quick inventory of their typical day and log what they do from rise to bed. This is a great practice for anyone confused by where their time goes and how to accomplish everything that needs doing each day. I often create such a log in my journal’s daily agenda. This can help not only manage my time, but to get a sense of how much energy you actually spend doing the things you love versus doing things you would rather live without.
After a couple days, evaluate your log and your feelings about it. Are you happy with what you see? Was where you spent most of your energy where you expected it would be? What would you change about your daily routine if you could?
Stay tuned this month as we share stories on time-crunching meditations, quick and easy meals to power you through your day, ways to organize and how your phone can actually save you time… plus much, much more.
In the meantime, please tell us, how do you view time?
