This week's post is a little bit different.
Marked annually on March 8th, International Women's Day (IWD) is one of the most important days of the year to:
Celebrate women's achievements
Raise awareness about women's equality
Appreciate yourself for who YOU are
Appreciate your body, it is the only home you will ever live in.
Generally, women always seem to be struggling with finding time for themselves, they prioritise everything and everyone else first.
I have recently listened to (twice not once) a great book written by Gay Hendricks “The Big Leap”, it is a great book and I would highly recommend to read or listen to. The bit which struck me and I would like to share it with you today is the Einstein Time he is talking about.
The Newtonian paradigm says there’s only a finite amount of time. It assumes that there’s a scarcity of time. And it gives us this feeling of urge – the feeling that we never have ‘the right amount of time’. Therefore we’re always busy and rushing, trying to stay ahead of the clock and fit in as much as possible into a week, half a day or an hour. There are also people that are bored at the other end of the scale, but I doubt that you know many such moments in your life.
Gay Hendricks explains: “At the heart of the Newtonian time crunch is a dualistic split: we are deluded into thinking that time is ‘out there’, an actual physical entity that can put pressure on us ‘in here’.” As soon as you quit thinking the time is ‘out there’, you can take ownership of time. If you acknowledge that you are where time comes from, it will stop owning you. You won’t be the slave of time anymore. And now, the only thing to do is to implement this insight…
EINSTEIN TIME delivers four main benefits:
You get more done in less time.
You enjoy plenty of time and abundant energy for your most important creative activities.
You discover your unique abilities and how to express them.
You feel good inside.
If those benefits sound good to you, you’re ready to enter the new world of Einstein time.
Einstein time gives you a way to expand the amount of time you need for creative expression and intimate connections. With Einstein time, you not only save time—you’ll learn how to become the source of time so you can make as much as you want. With Einstein time, you’ll also discover how to liberate the energy you need for accomplishing your most precious activities. You’ll understand exactly what drains your creative energy and how to stop the drain.
The result: No more rushing, no more time pressure, no more feeling exhausted because you worked all day and didn’t get any of the important things done. Instead, you have plenty of time, an abundance of energy, and the skills that will keep both time and energy in a constant state of refreshing renewal.
If it is still not clear to you what Einstein Time is, the answer is simple. By prioritising what is important to you, you make it happen and you will enjoy every minute of it.

I hope we can all make more meaningful time for ourselves and our wellbeing.
Happy International Women's Day!!!
