A Revolutionary Approach to Reclaiming Your Time
November. The air is crisp, the leaves are ablaze, and the world seems to be spinning faster than ever. It’s that time of the year again, where the buzz of holiday cheer is often overshadowed by the relentless pressure to spend – spend money, spend time, spend energy. The holiday season, as delightful as it is, has become synonymous with excess in every form. But this year, I’ve decided to take a different route, a path less traveled, and focus on ways to reclaim my time & energy. Instead of succumbing to the pressure to add more to my life, I’ve decided to do the unthinkable – subtract this holiday season. Yes, you read that right. I’m embracing the anti-buy, not just in material possessions, but in my time and energy too.
It’s a revolutionary concept, really. In a society that constantly urges us to buy more, do more, be more, the act of consciously choosing what not to buy, what not to do, and what not to commit to feels liberating. Meraki Consulting’s approach isn’t just about saving time; it’s about being intentional in everything we do. It’s about understanding that our time is our most precious asset, one that shouldn’t be squandered on activities that don’t serve us, on events that don’t inspire us, and on people who don’t uplift us.
This November, I’m taking a stand. I’m decluttering my calendar, Marie Kondo style. I’m removing the unnecessary meetings that drain my energy, the social events that leave me feeling empty, and the tasks that don’t align with my goals. Instead, I’m filling those precious hours with moments that truly matter – quality time with loved ones, pursuing passions that set my soul on fire, and engaging in self-care practices that nurture my mind, body, and spirit.
