Whether you’re a night owl or an early bird, whether you need a measly three hours or a glorious eight hours of sleep, the real elixir is giving yourself the freedom to vibe on your own rhythm for 24 solid hours. Feel like a Time Lord for a day, darling!
The Drill: Work, daycare, after-school activities. Then you have a one-day breather but you’re too zonked to do anything cool? I get it, life’s a treadmill, baby.
But hold your horses, here’s the big ol’ BUT: Spoil yourself at least once a month with the ultimate luxury — the day where you make the rules. Think of it as an adult “snow day,” but instead of snow, it’s just your need to chill.
Forget the 9-to-5 grind, what to eat, when to sleep, no ‘shoulda-woulda-coulda’. Midnight pizza? Do it. Ignore all responsibilities? Ghost ’em. Life keeps moving, and it’s time you did some jamming with yourself.
When the ‘gotta-do-this-gotta-do-that’ gremlins crawl in, flick ’em away with the gust of your enlightened breath. No obligations, just pure “I want to” and “I feel like it.”
This is not another item on your spiritual to-do list. No. People are sprinting into their meditation like, “Let’s tick this box off.” It’s not a scorecard, honey!
Whether you’re chasing goals in meditation or chasing paper in business, you’re just chasing. And chasing’s a vibe-killer. Modern life made that the norm, but that ain’t style; it’s a style disruptor. You lose the moment to actually vibe with the one staring back at you in the mirror.
Meditation isn’t everyone’s jam, and that’s cool. It’s crucial to find your own groove for some ‘me time’. This isn’t about moaning to your BFF over coffee. This is confronting the beautifully empty canvas of your day and filling it up with YOU.
Yeah, it’s shocking at first. People have strayed so far from owning their time, they have no clue what to do. But begin gently — a bath or a solo dance party. You decide.
So, this might be radical, but people are edgy, burnt-out. You see it, I see it. Does a centered human act that way? No. Take charge.
Now, I know you won’t jump on this tomorrow. But when you wake up feeling all kinds of “meh,” remember, this is your cue to stop the self-sabotage. The ultimate question is: how much is your life worth? If you had to haggle with the Grim Reaper, how much would you pay for an extra hour, let alone a day?
So go on, reclaim that day and be the lord of your own time, moment by beautiful moment, feeling the genuine eternity of your being.
