Creating More Time For Yourself

A quick technique to expand your perception of time

How often do you find yourself too busy to get finished everything you want to do?

There seems to be not enough time in the day for what you want to do, and you feel overwhelmed. You spend all your time trying to catch up.

The next time you start to notice this is happening, STOP and listen to what you are saying to yourself.

My guess is that you are saying “I don’t have enough time” or “there are not enough hours in the day” or “I will never get all this done”.

Whatever you are saying it will be something about not having enough time.

Well, you are absolutely right. Your mind is creating the reality of a shortage of time. Our brains don’t understand the concept of time, our bodies react to an internal clock that is driven by light and darkness, but our minds have the ability to expand and contract time.

Have you ever been in a meeting, and it feels as if time had stood still? You keep looking at the clock and it never seems to move. Then there are other times, when you notice the time has flown by and say “ How can it be that time already?”

When this happens it is as if time is flying by faster than you can believe possible. So, here is a wee trick that I have taught to thousands of people. The next time you become aware of having not enough time, stop and listen to what you are saying to yourself.

Take a deep breath, slow down your breathing and tell yourself “I have all the time in the world, within the time I have to get this finished easily and effortlessly”.

For example, if you have an hour to finish a report you say “I have all the time in the world within the next hour to get this report finished easily and effortlessly”

The more you practice this, the more time you will be able to create for yourself.
