Do you ever feel the need of having more time? or
Do you ever wish for some free time?
If yes, you need MINIMALISM
I always wished I had more time to follow my Hobby, to watch weekend movie, to spend time gardening. I never realized that time I was demanding for, was with me already- I just need to manage it.
Gift of Time
When you gift someone your Time, which is a precious thing, you prove that you value them.
I remember how My mother, despite her full time Job used to play with us, cook for us and helped us with School homework.
If we can’t gift some quality time to play with our Kids, we fail as Parents
If we can’t give some quality time to care for our elderly Parents, we fail as Kids
If we can’t give quality time to our Life partner, we fail our Marriage
This does not mean one should leave their Jobs or Work, This does not mean one should only involve in chit chat throughout the day. However little, but the time you spend with them should be valuable.
When we do not plan our time properly, 24 hours seems so less.
If we divide our day, we tend not spend our time mindlessly over social media or complaining about something. We are more productive this way.
Every thing eats your time- Be it long distance to your workplace or your gym or Kid’s school. Try to keep the commuting time as less as possible.
We cannot fit everything in 1 day but we can at least decide our priorities.
Extra Time window
My Mother always advised me to consider this extra time window before going anywhere. I did missed my Flight due to the same reason once.
However, I still need to learn this art of no-last-time-fire-fighting which includes completing work just on time, submitting documents the last day, reaching Office late.
Once you free more time for yourself, you will juggle less, stress less, compromise less and appreciate more. Moreover, you will have some free time. After all, Minimalism is about Freedom and loving your Life.
