Finding time to chill

In this fast-paced world, we live in, we tend to place all our emphasis on work and not enough on our home lives, including spending time with our children. I think we tend to lose sight of what’s important.

Work or daily stress mustn’t interfere with our ability to think about how we want to live and live our lives. Our home lives are massively important. They are our true values.

So, abandon the phones, switch the WI-FI off, chill and make time to connect with yourself and with your family. Stop the clock watching, stop thinking about work, connect and most of all stop worrying about things.

  1. Yes, the emphasis out in the world, seems to be doing as much as we possibly can during each day, so when do people really take the time to relax?

    I’m sure that people think my life is just so fantastic, because I’m not working, but what good does it really do when I struggle to find a reason to get out of bed on most days, let alone function out there in the real world?

    I wasn’t exactly allowed to chill as a kid, so I always got the message that what I wanted never really mattered. It would have been great if my parents would have allowed me to feel like it was okay to enjoy living my own life, rather than bury me under a mountain of guilt, shame and remorse that I can’t seem to dig out from under.

    What’s the point of even living, when you feel so guilty for even existing? My struggle today is choosing to be with the person I’ve always wanted to be with, instead of living this lie that’s best for everyone else.

    Why can’t I just enjoy living like everyone else?

    1. It’s sounds like a very bad day Randy. I understand what it’s like to be stuck.

      Your reason for not working is yours Randy, it doesn’t matter what others think. In answer to your thinking around your struggle. I believe it’s your choice who you choose to have in your life.

      It’s what you choose to do. It’s as simple as that. You have two options. To stay as you are where you are, or change your life, your circumstances and move on.

      I think that when our circumstances change, we will have less stress and more time for chilling, being around people we want to be with.

  2. It is hard to find time to turn everything off, including ourselves and just relax. It’s so nice to read a book, have a chat with a friend, or just sit outside observing.

    I enjoy watching our cat going about her day, looking for things to chase or just rolling around outside; simple things that remind us there was life before we got ‘plugged in.’

    1. Thanks. I couldn’t agree more. It is so important to chill. Animals teach us exactly how to live, but sadly they don’t. We tend to want our cake and eat it. We must choose to perceive our lives differently if to get a different result.

      Cats particularly know how to live, they’re more spiritual over dogs, but unless we’re prepared to change how we do things no animal will help us overcome how we are.

      I agree with your analogy of being ‘plugged in.’ Perhaps as we plugged ourselves in, we should learn to plug ourselves out.
