20 More Minutes

 

This is really simple, but it isn't always easy.

The challenge is to give yourself 20 minutes out of your day to focus entirely on you. Not an excuse to go shopping or have coffee with a friend, but rather a time for dedicated effort to help yourself.

The key is to just start with 20 minutes and do something with purpose, with focus, and full of consciousness.

Sound like some hippy tripe? Of course it does, but it works...

"Where's the science to back this up?" Seriously? I don't have the patience for this. Try it or not, it's no skin off my back. Worst case scenario, you get off your ass and get away from it all for a few minutes.

If we can reclaim just 20 minutes, and use those minutes for something purposeful, we can start to retake power over our days, maybe over our emotions, and certainly over our purpose.
