Seriously now, think for 10 seconds and see what you come up with. If I had extra time I would spend it doing things with my husband and babies. Anything, going to the park, talking, drinking, reading, watching them sleep. It doesn't have to be some amazing feat from your bucket list. Just to have the added bonus of an extra year together is enough. In our culture the attitude is often, "time is money". That seems to carry a lot of weight with people as far as spending their time with more thought. Maybe it would help us to sometimes have the view of just appreciating non booked up moments that are ours to spend feeding our psyches. The ongoing benefits are obvious for some but will be made obvious over time to those not used to this way of looking at things.
So, how to claim that year?
Think of what you lose most often - keys, phone, charger, wallet etc. Of course some things we put away so well we end up losing them in the end. The advantage to having less stuff or a reasonable amount of stuff (very subjective) is that there is less to put away and therefore misplace.
Consider this all too familiar scenario - rushing around in the morning trying to get your household or yourself out the door, to school or work on time without having a stress attack and breaking into a sweat before you hit the road. Never mind the raised voices and short replies - and the subsequent guilt (inevitably).
Contrarily - knowing exactly where all your important bits and pieces are so they are easily grabbable while you remain pristine and unfettered and start your day with a healthy blood pressure reading.
This will not magically happen mes amis. Some thought and effort - albeit not a tonne, will ensure your mornings run more smoothly, even for those non-morning lovers like myself.
