no defining line drawn….. just a need

to get past the trials of the day and

move on…. There will always be a way….

Downtime…

Downtime.

Learn the love of taking time out and really tuning in to tuning out. In this frenetic rushed life of ours, we are up and at it, work and life combined, rush, rush, rush way to often. We may stop for a quick bite, then we seem to go all day until dusk. Once we do finally get to sit down and relax, what to do we do? The relaxation of life these days seems to be non-existent. So maybe we need to understand what down time means-in order to do it.

Does it mean sitting and watching the television and zoning out? Does it involve grabbing the phone and staring and scrolling aimlessly through the screen on facebook? Does it mean that we need to be somewhere where we catch up on twitter, Instagram, the News, the gossip for the day before so we dont think we are missing out. More and more people need their techno fix to feel part of this world. For some people……That may be so. and, if that is the happy way that you generally finish your day, then enjoy.

But for genuine Down time to be enjoyed and understood……. it is just that. Put those devices down….for a period of time……Simple. Try connecting once again with something else that used to matter to you -before technology became ingrained in us all. This dosent have to be for the whole day (however – wouldn’t that be great) but an organised period of time to make a difference. Say, start with 2 hours-see how you go. Try some type of other activity that encourages the mind and spirit to smile. So when we think again of times that connective values mattered to us -we might be reminded of things from the past. Such as;

  • Reading a long lost novel under a shady tree near the waters edge.
  • Potting a flower or herb in the garden.
  • Ride a motorbike along the seaside.
  • Go for a journey on a train.
  • Reconnect with an old friend. (2 hours is a good time for a cuppa)
  • Doodle and make pictures with pencils or crayons.
  • Ride a horse.

There are loads of ideas, once you start to think and connect with the old you and what you enjoyed before you just sat stagnating on a phone. Above are just some of my nostalgic memories. Make a list for your self from your past. What about something you’ve always wanted to do. Start by freeing up your time and go and inquire about them.

My all time favorite-without any phone or devices is to fish on a beach (catching or not) until the sun dies down over the horizon and watching the water roll in rhythmically. I can stay there content for days.

I know that it is entirely necessary in this day and age to be involved, especially with work nowadays, to have to deal with computers, Iphones etc. But are we losing touch with the world as we knew it? Yes I think we are. A practice of downtime may connect you happily with something you once did that gave you great joy-and you didn’t realise you had lost it.

Down time is your time to take time -for you…….

 

Find your Mast…..

Lash Yourself to your Mast…….

Find yourself a positive person in your life that you can rely on……….Your Mast being tall and straight talking,

caring and honest who helps to guide you when it is asked of them.  This friend (Mast) will be there for you-and has

been there for you in the past. The genuine care of this guide will support you in your ventures and life trials and

tribulations. For not just when the roses smell nice and the parties have been fun in the past. Where you have been

their Mast. Where you have been there for them? You have been there in their times of need . Your Mast is not your

fair weathered friend, your Mast is the friend who handles all weather. Look for that friend. Look for your Mast.

You will know who that is.
