“Time waits for no man”- unknown
Do you ever feel like a mouse endlessly running on a wheel and getting nowhere day after day?
like millions of others I am trying to get back some time to do more of the things I want to do rather than the mundane things in life!
What is time?
As most of us know time is a measurement that we use to measure the earths rotation, making us more conscious of events (of natures dance) through time and space.
We use the atomic clock to measure seconds using the vibrations of atoms bouncing back and forth (oscillating) giving the most accurate measurement of time.
So by measuring time this created our awareness of the past, present and future called psychology time
Einstein wrote “for us physicists believe the separation between past, present, and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one.”

I work full time, I like my job but its tiring and by the time I get home after my long commute, do my chores, shower, make dinner, eat and clean up I have over an hour left before heading to bed to do it all over again (is this the definition of insanity)
To get back some time I started getting up at 4:15 am weekdays to fit in my meditation and exercise because I’m more of a morning person, at night when I eventually sit down I am so tired I can’t even think about focusing on anything else but vegging out you guessed it! in front of the television (being a subservient zombie)
I was seeing my life passing me by without really doing anything with it, tv can be such a time waster so lessening time in front of that is the way to go.
I love what Master Oogway from Kunfu Panda said- “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift that is why they call it the present”
Another good one “If you are depressed you are living in the past, if you are anxious you are living in the future, If you are at peace you are living in the present”- Lao Tzu
The older I get I realise life is a gift and that we need to make the most of every single day, appreciate every moment weather good or bad, embrace it all!
Here’s a tip: practice mindfulness (being in the present moment) eases anxiety and loosens the hold time has on you
You know that your in the present moment when everything else (the past and future) falls away and your just aware of what is happening now, this is what just be means.
