What is the best gift you are thinking about giving this year??

In an informal survey of my clients, colleagues and friends, ALL picked having more time. Don’t think I’ve ever done a survey with a 100% result unless it was about a favorite food or candy.

What does more time mean and how can you make it into a gift…for you and for them?? You can easily get up an hour earlier for “you” time – to read, or think, or meditate, or pray, or just sit and stare. Breathing with this makes the “you” time feel longer. You can take breaks during the day that are 120 second breaks. Stand, move, some more breathing, wall pushups. Action and movement also make it feel like we have more time.

What about the gifts to your family, friends and colleagues and their times needs? I have solved that question with the perfect solution…so I am told. I give them the gift of time from me. Could be babysitting; helping them plan their garden; a movie together; helping them weed; teaching their teen to drive; dragging their bodies to a massage; sitting on the floor actually playing with my grands; helping with the recycling; offering to do a “thing” they hate doing and making them go relax while I do it.

I have never ever ever ever had a refusal of giving time. People love it – they do not expect it and many times it inspires them to give the same gift to others.

BOOM. Gift giving solved. You are welcome!
