This is that time of year when consciously including a little wiggle room in the calendar and clock is a good idea – you know, that little space between chores, items on a schedule or in the datebook.
Many of us always have some version of a to-do list and a ticking clock rattling around in our heads — what we need to get to, get done, get moving or just get. Remembering that all that “getting” gets in the way of being. And without the being, we can slip away from ourselves…then the getting is of little value. This time of year with the feelings of acceleration and compression mounting, a little wiggle room could be good.
Giving ourselves permission to simplify, slow down and invite some space into our days allows us to breathe a little deeper and think a little more clearly. It lets us take better care of ourselves and each other.
Wiggle room is good. And it’s yours for the asking. Now’s a good time.
