Everything we need to know we learned in Kindergarten
Remember those posters… For those of us who remember the posters. All the simple rules of life that began at age 5. I think it’s safe to say we may have lost touch with some of that simplicity and maybe forgot a few joys in life. It’s not entirely our fault, when we were five play was part of our daily lives and time was never an issue. As we grew up and older, we obtained more responsibilities and our time became strained. Didn’t it seem like it would be so fun to be an adult? Now we have meme’s to sarcastically make fun of adulting. It doesn’t have to be all work and no play though. Let’s get back to sharing our time with one another.
It’s time to get back to the basics in life. To stop worrying about all the things we HAVE to do and make some room for the things we want to do. The little things that make us smile. Whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, personal time and time with others is vital to our overall health and wellbeing.
Sharing is all the rage these days. We share office space, data, clothing, even city bikes. Think of how the average person can quickly become an entrepreneur by merely opening their home or their car with resources like Airbnb or Uber. The concept of sharing leaves nothing to waste, but instead ensures each resource is used to the best of its ability. Sharing not only puts the environment at the heart of the system but also people. It’s the idea that information, goods, and knowledge are all accessible to anyone at anytime. But while we are all focused on sharing resources so as not to waste valuable items, what about our time? When did you last ensure you were valuing your time?
Make it a priority
