Let Go Of Time

When you let go of the idea of "Time" you will find that the ticking of the clock will no longer be an obstinate obstacle for you. Some people chase the clock during their busy work days trying to keep a schedule, only to find they've gotten nowhere fast. This can lead to mental stress, causing short-term memory loss, insomnia, irritability towards those who don't deserve it, and road rage while having to deal with drivers that seem to be purposely driving slower than you on the freeway.

Try this: If you work a job that requires you to "Be On Time", such as FedEx, UPS, or another time sensitive profession, simply forget about the clock. Just peacefully begin your day and move at a comfortable pace. Just for one day, forget about time and pretend you have all the time in the world; really you do since time is but a figment our collective imagination. Don't try to rush home. Don't get bothered at the slower pace of others. They are in their own little bubble and not even concerned about you.

You will find that at the end of the day, you were able to maintain your schedule, while feeling relaxed. Important factors such as your digestion will be better, along with your mood and overall outlook on the day. I have found that when I ignore the clock, the day moves along much more smoothly because I wasn't chasing that imaginary element of time.

This is a conscious approach to daily happiness when it comes to those who have stress laden careers. There are many aspects to a stressful job, and the Illusion of Time is just one of them. The secret is to find what it is about your specific job that is weighing you down and simply remove it from your mind. Yes, it is simple once you take charge of your consciousness, because only you are in control of what enters your brain, and what gets left behind the velvet rope of your mind.
