I see many people complaining of time, no time so much of work, I have to finish the work, so much of deadline is there in front of me how could I work? This sort of expression is getting very very common. People say they are under tension all the time but actually, it is time pressure, which they don’t know how to deal with.
I say that the problem is not the lack of time, it is the understanding about time and it is an attitudinal problem, it is you who led the time pressure into the mental pressure, in fact, let me tell you, I always say that time pressure is good, it really makes you active, it demands focus, it enhances your management skill and it keeps your mind in a high state of awareness.
I will give you an example, runner sets a time to achieve a certain distance, his performance is going to enhance, he focusses on the path and thus he will progress also, to that I would say you should always keep a tight deadline to do all your activities of your day and this shall bring discipline in your life, with such management, you will have so much time handy in your life. Now you will have a choice to take up time pressure as a learning mode and that too without making stress out of it.
there is always a time constraint in your life and so take care of 2 things in your life, 1) your body.your body,only through that you will be doing all the activities of your life,all the activities ,responsibilities,duties of your life,so keep your body fit and fine,don’t do any such thing which will hurt and harm your body,body means body and mind and 2 ) always live under time pressure,means whatever you do,always give a deadline,tell yourself that I am going for a bath and I will complete bath in 7 minutes otherwise you may spend half an hour in your bathroom,if you are eating your food,I will finish my food in 10 minutes again you are giving a time pressure,and this is how every job would be done in so focused way so perfect way with full concentration,that job itself would be a meditation,so try and see that every human should learn this art of living.
this is the way we should live, always be under time pressure for every work we are doing and our focus would be perfect, so this was the secret of his long life span. We evolve in time pressure, our mind gets the ability to overcome tamas, dullness, laziness most of the time we end up in stress because of and improper management, right management can help you to achieve deadline quiet, start your day a daily schedule, this should be your short term plan, keep the schedule as long term plan according to your work requirement,
As time pressure is your self induced stress, so keep the practice of yoga, basically, asana and pranayama as the morning routine, yoga asanas, pranayama, meditation, kriyas would keep you so much energetic and clear in your mind in a way that you will be able to manage your days schedule very well. For a healthy and energetic day,food-what to eat, how to eat, how much to eat becomes very very important, so a rule is there that does not eat food when you are not hungry, do not skip any meals, when you eat have a glass full of liquid along with you and see that your first meal is at the time of sunrise and your last meal is at the time of sunset, also ensure that you eat freshly cooked home food, these may appear very simple activities but let me tell you, they decide your state of mind at work, take every deadline as a challenge, roll up your sleeves and go for it, upgrade yourself and keep working and rest would be taken care by universe or god!!
