3 Tips to Keep Up with “TIME”
Here’s Why Your Days Are Flying By…
You know when you glance at your calendar and think, “How is it already July?” If time feels like it’s going faster than ever for you, that’s because it is.
Of course, the way time is measured is still the same. Seconds haven’t gotten any faster. But the way we feel time is speeding up. We are in the era of information where everything and everyone is instantly accessible. We can quickly find any data we need in the palm of our hands.
What a lot of people don’t realize is that we have actually entered into a new age, as well. This only happens about every 2,150 years, so it’s pretty cool that we are alive during this time. In 1991, we entered into the age of Aquarius and Yogi Bhajan predicted that we will be fully immersed in this age by 2035.
The age of Aquarius is all about speed, being and DOING. It’s no longer powerful to have information, it’s all about what we are doing with the information. Since speed is a theme of this age, many of us may have been feeling the affects of this new age without even realizing it. As we’re trying to keep up, it feels like fatigue, stress, anxiety, depression or overwhelm.
Everything is only going to get even faster, so our option here is to elevate our energy and consciousness to be able to “get with the times.”
Here are a few tricks that will help.
Adopting a daily meditation practice will have profound affects on your mind, body and spirit. There are many different styles of meditation for you to choose from. So if you’ve tried one in the past that seemed too hard, don’t give up! Pick a new method and give it a go. Your practice can take anywhere from 3 minutes a day to 40 minutes a day. It’s important to start small and build your meditation endurance up over time.
2. Slow down to speed up.
Research has shown that multi-tasking is nearly impossible for our brains. Focusing on getting one thing done at a time is a much more efficient use of time and our brains. So put your phone away, close out open tabs, take a few grounding breaths and let yourself be in the moment with the task at hand.
3. Start DOING.
One of the five sutras of the Aquarian age is, “When the time is on you, start, and the pressure will be off.” This age is all about shifting into fifth gear and acting on the information and network you now have. There’s no better time than now to sign up for that class, train for that run or go on that trip!
