Twenty-four hours. That's it. No more, no less.
How do you spend your days? Are you jumping out of bed, stretching, reaching for whatever the day brings? Do you feel like you are in a marathon, last person in the group, never quite crossing the finish line? Or are you buried alive under a casket weighted with deadlines, lists and obligations?
It is not my job to advise you on how to spend your days. However, I can help you to bring some awareness to how and where your time is leaking and some skills to arrest the "thief".
If you are thinking and feeling frustrated, worried and fearful about the erosion of your time, you are creating stress - a cascade of 1400 chemicals that distract you from using your time wisely.
The "auntie"-dote: Learn some techniques that help to balance your nervous system, so you'll be using those twenty-four hours wisely.
