Life Without Timekeeping

I understand timekeeping is a part of our lives now, but just think of the peace that life without timekeeping would give us.

    We have to watch time, we just shouldn’t let it consume us!

  3. I loved this!
    In fact I am a bit anti time keeping and as a very small gesture I never wear a watch (ok, these days time is everywhere like your mobile and your laptop but as I said it is just a tiny gesture to myself to try and be a bit less under the control of this almighty time concept 🙂 ).
    Anyway, back to your post – thanks for saring this and in some ways I think that time is so valuable that it shouldn’t be measured precisely for this reason (if that makes any sense at all).

      Good 🙂
      I hear you. I’m constantly either asking or looking at the time. Some of its medically necessary, but aside from that I sometimes feel like I’m a prisoner to it.
      That last thing you said makes total sense. I couldn’t have said it better. Bravo 🙂

  4. Isn’t this the truth! My schedule is so much lighter these days that I can stop having to remember what day it is constantly…and then I’ll casually be thinking it’s Tuesday when its Thursday and it feels discombobulating. Strange, but definitely less stressful when I go days without even thinking about it!

    I think it’s time for some coffee. 😉

  6. I often say to people that time as we know it is a man made illusion, and they always look at me strangely, as if I’ve started to talk in Japanese! 🙂 Most people think that the time we live by is naturally occurring, not realising that the days, weeks, months and years are a complete invention!

    I often wonder if we didn’t live by all that counting whether our minds would be very different. And maybe there would be a lot less anxious and depressed people around, as the counting of time is a constant presence of stress. I feel like opting out sometimes! In fact I often do, when I can! But it requires being alone all day, otherwise the counting creeps back in from those that I’m around! It’s good to hear I’m not the only one who thinks time is man made, and we’d all be better off without observing so much of it!

    that a girl. you are totally right. and i can totally see people reacting that way when you bring it up. we (people) are so programmed and just accept things such as time as something that has to be a part of our life when in actuality it does not. like you said, what an amazing time and feeling it would be to just live free from the constraints of time. i also agree and believe that anxiety and depression would easily be cut in half. i know a lot of my stress originates from it. so happy you shared what you did. you’ve now let me know i’m not the only one that thinks about this, ha 🙂

    Without keeping time we can truly focus on the moments
