Taking time out from all the decisions, actions and events in your life can result in you getting out of stuck and excelling.
If your activities are creating stress and feelings of overwhelm then the cure is to take time out.
“Time out?” you shriek at me. You are so busy that you have no time to take time out.
And that is why you need to take the time out.
One way to discipline children is to give them a time out.
Time to reflect on what they are doing. Time to re-evaluate their behaviour.
One way that the body often forces us to take time out is to get ill. So much disease is about dis-ease. We need time out to evaluate what is happening to us.
Running hard to keep ahead of disaster or impending catastrophe rarely helps prevent the “tragedy”. You might be able to save yourself but rarely can you prevent everything else from falling apart.
We become so busy doing things that we forget that life is about Fun, Funds and Fitness.
- When you stop enjoying things,you need to step away, take time out, step back.
- When you lack funds to do what you want then you need to step back and figure out if what you need the funds for really matters to your well-being.
- When you lack fitness; physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually you are unable to cope, you need to take time out and re-evaluate what you want and how will it make your life better.
Taking time out means think time.
It means study time.
It means time for change.
It means planning how you will get out of stuck and excel and that starts with naming where you want to be.
Take a deep breath.
Now go smell the roses, lie in the grass and watch it grow, look at snowflakes falling or count raindrops.
Take time out every day and use that time to get grounded so you can determine what really matters and how you can move forward.
To your future
