Tick-Tock, the Merry-Go-Round of the Clock (4)

There are those that sometimes overburden themselves to extremities and then rail at Life for living it. So if you don't like the hectic way you are living, you then need to make changes in your schedule and force yourself to relax a little. Naturally, there is nothing better for relaxation than a good night's sleep__or is this possible? If you go to bed all tensed up worried about what you have to do the next day, you will wake up more tense. So you are defeating the purpose. With all this hurry-scurry, you are building up stress and creating eventually serious health issues. Most diseases are the result of stress. When one is tense, you work at a greatly reduced level of efficiency. Through relaxation you learn to conserve your energy. Tension in itself is not harmful to you; however, the constant tension that you subject your body to is what is dangerous.

I love to watch the Animal Planet channel. I find it to be very interesting. I like to observe the reactions of the lions or tigers, when they are approaching their prey. In one moment, the lion or the tiger is relaxed, and then the next moment it is tense, poised, and ready to spring upon its victim. When it does spring it is using all of the energy stored up during its period of relaxation. Maybe we can take a lesson from this.

Life is an unfolding process, where we "move from comparative ease to points of crisis." Although there are many do's and don’ts that I could suggest, that would be helpful to you, in lessening your stress on the Merry-Go-Round of the Clock, but then everyone's situation and circumstances are different. So really it is up to each and every one of us, to find a solution that would minimize some what, the demand of the self-imposed time schedules that would end up resulting beneficial to all concerned.

Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock, Goes The Merry-Go-Round of the Clock.
