Monday Mojo – Stop the Clock

Do you ever feel like time is going too fast?

As we find ourselves in mid October, you might be asking where this year has gone. Especially if you’ve been so busy, you didn’t get a chance to complete that goal, read that book, do that course or anything else you’d set out to do. 

And that’s ok. 

One of the things I remind people at my events is, we can always pause during the day and reset. Every moment is a blank sheet. It’s ok to start again.

Here’s something that might help. 

This week, maybe set the intention to Stop the Clock. Although we can’t physically halt time, we can take opportunities during the day, during the week or every month just to pause and take in what’s happening.

Gabby Bernstein says we can make a conscious choice to slow down and take in the world around us. One thing she suggests is three times a day check in with yourself, to see how “fast” you’re going. Not because fast is bad, but because it’s actually alright to pace ourselves.

This article reminds us that busy also doesn’t mean productive. It suggests, for example, that we can order our coffee for here (rather than to take out), put down the iPad and go back to paper and pen, or just schedule time to do nothing.

Whichever you decide to do, remember that this matters. You can’t give people energy you don’t have, and you’re allowed to make time for you.
