So, why do we always feel starved for time?
According to, “Starved for Time? Here’s a Surprising—and Easy—Solution”, by Christine Carter with Mindful.org, there is an obvious answer.
When you look around, what do you see people doing? Sitting idle, enjoying their surrounds? Looking up at the sky? Sitting in peaceful meditation? Let’s admit it, on most days we are checking our smartphones every 10 seconds, responding to the constant alerts, pings, and emails that are coming through or catching up on the latest news feeds.
So how can we take back our time to become more efficient and focused? One word -- Stillness.
Be present, be still and remember to take care of yourself. Catch up on your stillness!
