But I hear your resistance already and I understand completely!
How can you possibly have a day without a clock when everything you do revolves around schedules and deadlines?
Well here’s a step by step way of achieving it – I promise you won’t regret it. The aim is to reset yourself back to your basic creative state – and it really works!
- Look through your diary and identify a day where you have no commitments. Mark it in NOW as a “clockless day”.
- The night before your clockless day, go around removing clocks from sight from your space.
- Allow yourself to wake up naturally and gently.
- Throughout the day, give yourself as long as you need to complete tasks.
- Eat when you’re hungry and rest when you’re tired.
- At the end of the day, reflect on how liberating it has been to take all the time you wanted and how you listened to your body’s natural rhythms.
- Make a date to have a clockless day again!
On a personal note this week, I have had a rollercoaster of one! I confess that even though I'm a Life Coach, I am just human and I find it difficult to coach myself. So I have to read my own blogs and personal journals to remind myself how to cope! There you are, you are not alone and I am not invincible.
I feel like this One YellowLeaf painting sometimes - isolated and just floating with a loss of purpose. But trust me when I say that with some of the coaching tips I have given you on this site, the very least you can glean is that off-days are transitory and the universe always rewards a forward vision. So make that clock redundant today and feel the benefit of "you" time - you, and I, deserve it.
Have a good week,
