"Time is on my side, yes it is" - The Rolling Stones
"Time is a created thing. To say 'I don't have time,' is like saying 'I don't want to." - Lao Tzu, 6th Century BC Chinese Philosopher, Author of the Tao Te Ching and Founder of Taoism
"If you always say 'I don't have time' you may end up with too much of it on your hands." - Jackie Woodside, Conscious Living
Step 1: Become aware of what you do each day spend time on what serves you and your cause.
Time is not a manageable commodity. We are all given the same resource, the same 24/7. You cannot manage time. What you CAN manage is how you consciously chose to utilize time. on your desktop or a note pad, make a rough outline.
Step 2: objectively and lovingly notice It is often seen as more socially responsible to be busy.
Do you spend your time furthering your mission or keeping up with the Joneses? Follow the internal nudge you hear in quiet, alone time and send love to fear of failure and change
Step 3: What do you Like and Dislike?
Ever notice how some people have a short fuse or how others aren't bothered by what drives you crazy?! Situations and time periods are not stressful, you are responding to an external stimuli that you have labeled as a 'Dislike.' Notice after your reactions today what you like or dislike.
Step 4: 1 Minute of Quiet Time Start right now!
Don't worry about the idealized, quiet mind. you have 1,440 minutes each day, dedicate 1 to unplugging before serving others

The first Yoga Niyama is Sauca, meaning Cleanliness.
Outer cleanliness means keeping yourself clean and your life orderly and uncluttered. Inner cleanliness has as much to do with the healthy functioning of your bodily organs as with the clarity of your mind. Yoga postures tone your entire body and remove toxins while breathing practices cleanse your lungs, oxygenate your blood and purify your nerves. When you clear the clutter from your personal environment and your mind you are more able to remain focused and less distracted by outside stimulation.
Certain common indoor plants may neutralize the effects of sick building syndrome. A NASA study suggests that certain common indoor plants may provide a natural way of removing toxic agents such as benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene from the air. As well as absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen, as all plants do, these plants also eliminate significant amounts of benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene. NASA researchers suggest efficient air cleaning is accomplished with at least one plant per 100 square feet of home or office space. Check out the list of plants and cleansing benefits here.
