Time doesn’t have to be your enemy

Standard

Time “the master of your mind”

Every day, every hour, every moment, every second we’re constantly being ruled by it.  From the moment we wake up in the morning. We jump up out of bed like a chicken with its head cut off and look at the time.  We take a shower, brush are teeth, get dressed, and maybe have breakfast.  For most of us, breakfast is a luxury that only happens on the weekend. We immediately start thinking about dealing with rush hour traffic and praying that it won’t be a car accident or road block that makes us late for our job.  Once we get to work, if we’re late we dread having to face our boss and have to think up a new excuse on why we’re late.  We move through our day constantly checking the time and checking are work to make sure we made our quota for the day.  The panic doesn’t end there because as soon as the clock hits five o’clock or what ever time we get off, we jump up grab our purse, briefcase or what ever items we have to take home.  After are stressful work day is over, we rush home take are kid to baseball practice or dance lesson, stop at the store buy groceries then rush home and cook dinner.  We finally sit down watch television or surf the web.  Before we know it, we’re looking at the time and noticing it’s after ten o’clock.  We jump up brush our teeth, say goodnight to our loved ones, put on our pajamas and hit the sack.  The first twenty minutes after laying down, thoughts of all the stuff we have to do by a certain time runs through are head like a rabbit running through a cabbage patch.

Master time by prioritizing your life

This thing called time can be something that seems almost insane because we can’t seem to get our mind off of it. Time doesn’t have to be your enemy.  Go to sleep a little earlier if you have to get up early.  Later that morning, you will be thankful that you did.  You’ll wake up and finally have time to eat a bowl of cereal and have some coffee or tea.  You can finally walk to your car instead of dashing out like a crazed mad man or woman.  You can turn on your radio and listen to some uplifting music or throw in your favorite cd that always puts a smile on your face.   When you arrive at work, you’ll be way more relax.  You’ll have time to get to work early, park and go read the paper or check your emails on your cell phone.  You may even have time to jot down the most important things you have to do that day.  You are the master of time.  You just need to have a different perspective of it and get your priorities straight.  Your daily life is for living.  Time is just a filing system for everything you do in it.  What matters is the quality of the time not the time itself.  Take one day a week and try not to look at the time.   If you look at the time purposely more than twice then you are still letting this illusory concept master you.

How to stay positive on steamy hot day

Standard

Dealing with mood swings in a heat storm

We all know that we’re suppose to drink a lot of water, stay in the shade, wear cool clothes when its hot.  Most of us women wish we could turn into a guy on those super hot steamy days then we could walk around shirtless.  All these ideas that help cool the body off, do very little to keep you from becoming grumpy and tired.  The heat penetrates your body and seems to bake the brain.  Your temper is short. The things that normally went right over your head, in the heat, seems to be overwhelmingly hard to deal with.  You snap at your kids more, your co-workers irritate the hell out of you for the smallest things, and your husband makes you want to pull your hair out.  It’s the heat changing your body temperature. It not only affects you physically but psychologically.

Slaying the psychological affects of heat stress

So how do we deflect the power of the heat’s furious blows to our psychiatric well being.  We have to take the smallest joys and make it a big thing.  We have to realize that this is just a temporary knock down from the elements as we move through are life’s journey.  Go buy your self a ice cream cone.  Don’t worry about your diet on a day that it’s 102 degrees outside with 80% humidity.  You are more concerned with your mental well being that day. Take a cool bubble bath and soak for twenty minutes.  Use your imagination and pretend your are on an exotic tropical island or that you are on a cruise ship heading toward Paris.  You can even imagine taking a trip to the moon or mars.  It doesn’t matter where you go, the key is to use your imagination to take you to a place of peace and relaxation.  Don’t let the heat dragon take away your joy or turn you into a mean nasty beast.  You can drink your ice tea and get under a shade tree and feel the breeze for a few minutes.  Go back to that thought every time the heat demons try to take you off balance.  Hot days come and go but they don’t have to take you down to your lowest state.  You can stay positive on those hot steamy days.  You can become your own super hero.  The heat is the villain that you refuse to take away your joy.

It was a delight and a blessing meeting Caroline Bossmeyers.   My name is Ramona Frye and I am a freelance writer on a mission to enlighten and entertain the world through informative, fun and innovative articles and short stories.    My daughter Kenya Frye is an eighteen year old autistic teenager.   The first time my daughter and I attended Caroline’s class was magical.   I had no idea how joyful it was going to be.   I was very stressed out when I came to the class for the first time.  It was during the crazy holiday season and I was running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to get ready for the Christmas holiday season.   At the end of the session I felt like I had just had a massage in love.   It was incredible.   The music, energy and dance techniques are magical.   I encourage all families with children or adults with special needs to get involved with this program.   You will be amazed at how it helps not only people with special needs but any one who wants to connect to the beauty of the inner dancer within.    For more articles or shortstories by me visit my blog:  www.elavationsun.com   You can also email me at ramonafr020@gmail.com
