How to Change Your Experience of Time

Oh, Happy Monday!  Today I finally carved out the time for a morning meditation, and it’s started me off on a really relaxed journey for the day.  I’m glad I did it, and it wasn’t that difficult to find an extra 15 minutes.  Why was it so hard previously?  Maybe because I thought I was completely controlled by time, fighting it every minute, and never having enough of it to do all the things I wanted to do in a day.

Over the past few months, I’ve pulled back this struggle with time.  I realized I was missing out on special moments, so I knew there had to be a shift at some level.  Don’t get me wrong–I know that I still have to maintain a fairly tight work schedule and stay on top of my responsibilities, but learning to say ‘no’ to things I can’t take on, carving out more time for sleep and for spending time with people I care about, and letting go of the need to accomplish 50 things simultaneously (at least for a few hours) has made a big difference in my daily routine.

Do you find that you struggle with time too?
