Set Time Aside 

Set Time Aside

I love clocks. I have a clock in every room.

Recently, one clock in my bathroom seemed to be getting louder and louder. I am not sure if this is even a thing, or if it is even true; however, the ticks and the clicks each second appeared louder to me as I intentionally put effort into quieting my busy mind each morning. 

One morning, the ticks and clicks were so loud and distracting, I decided to take the clock off the wall and set it in my bedroom while I was getting ready in my bathroom.

Setting the clock down felt liberating. 

The idea of setting aside the constant ticking AND the constant pressures of time in that moment felt good. 

SO good that I have now made it an itty-bitty daily morning tradition. 

I physically remove the clock and embrace that time will pass no matter what. I do not have to feel the pressure within each moment.

I can have some time to be with my quiet self without obsessing over time. I am learning and leaning into:

“Mindfulness gives you time. Time gives you choices. Choices, skillfully made, lead to freedom.”

This is a non-paid endorsement inviting you to consider setting time aside for a morning, or even a day, to invite in some quiet mindfulness as you relax into knowing you will have enough time.

Doesn’t this feel liberating?

Fun question…if time did not matter and you could have a “clockless” morning, or day, what would you do?

Please share your ideas on social media.

Connecting with our own stories and experiences supports all of our journeys within our time together.

Summer can be a perfect time of year to practice this.
