Everyone wants more time, and time multiplies when you read this brilliant book! Creating Time

If you feel like you are always running out of time, if you feel the daily pressure and stress of not enough time, this book will expand your mind, open your heart, and YES, give you all the time in the world.”
Arielle Ford, bestselling author of Wabi Sabi Love
In a society that seems to thrive on making us feel hurried and harried and pressed for time, this book stands firmly in the conviction that we have more time than we think we do and that were entitled to every delicious minute of it.”
Victoria Moran, author of Creating a Charmed Life
Most of us have said "If only I had more time" as a way of explaining why we don't pursue a dream goal. Marney Makridakis has found that when we say this kind of thing it's because our sense of time needs to be adjusted. What we need aren't more hours in the day but to change the way we experience them. Makridakis doesnt pretend that our time is infinite but is convincing that our "losing" or "lacking" it is a matter of perception. Each of her chapters presents a shift-making concept (using everything from ritual and stillness to metaphor and visualization) illustrated by real-life examples, step-by-step introspection processes, and delightfully unique art projects. Innovative tools for the way we track and measure time are intensely practical but because the issue is also psychological, emotional, and philosophical, Creating Time also inspires a liberating new sense of self — and of life itself.
Most of us have said, If only I had more time” as a way of explaining why we arent leading our most fulfilling lives. Marney Makridakis has found that what we need isnt more hours in our day but a change in the way we experience them. She turns the concept of time management upside-down by presenting exciting and new tools for viewing and experiencing time. Creating Time
combines creativity with science in a gorgeous colorful format that richly inspires as it presents a fascinating adventure in which readers imagine, create, and completely reshape the way they experience time. Each chapter presents a shift-making concept illustrated by real-life examples, step-by-step introspective processes, and powerful, unique reader-designed creative projects. While the latest time-tracking and productivity aids can be of some help to us, they are limited in their effectiveness, since the true nature of time extends beyond the chronological hours displayed in our wristwatches and smart phones. Instead, Creating Time
addresses the psychological, philosophical and emotional aspects of time, inspiring a liberating new view of self and a fresh perspective on the meaning of being human, empowered, and fully alive.
