During the school week, I’m constantly checking the clock to make sure I’m on track with my schedule - In school especially. When I get home, I have ideas of what I want to get done that night and by what time I need to get them done. If I’m taking longer on something that I had planned, I get a little anxious. It’s really unfortunate, I think, that my life is planned out to the minute 24 hours a day, 5 days a week. School tries to cram so much into one day that there’s no time to spare. If things aren’t done in the alotted time, my whole schedule gets behind. We have something called meeting for worship at my school - a Quaker tradition. We sit in silence for 45 minutes and introspect. The one thing that I absolutely love about it is that no clocks are visible from the meeting room. Time is not a factor of my thoughts, for once. That one 45 minutes of my week is such a relief for me. I can get away from the incessant tick of the clock and let my mind wonder wherever it wants. I think everyone that feels this pressure during the week should take a block of time out to separeate yourself from the anxiety time carries with it.
Smile!
