BLOGMAS DAY FIFTEEN: I Don’t Think Time is Real, Yet I Have Time Anxiety

I’m a realist, and I don’t believe that time is real. It’s a social construct that we all agree to abide by as a society to better understand this world we live in.

Yet, I have time anxiety.

Some will say that since you have anxiety over it, it must exist, and that could be true, but I also think that it’s the society in which we live. We are always on edge about not having enough time to do anything; it’s just second nature to us.

I noticed that we leave important tasks and fun activities for the days we are off work, and I believe that is because of the time anxiety we all have.

I started putting in longer hours at my job and noticed myself waiting until my days off to get things done, but this is not how you should live your life.

Leaving everything to your days off doesn’t help you rest on your off days. All of the essential tasks should be done in intervals instead of all at once. And this applies to the fun things too.

Just imagine the time you spend on social media scrolling endlessly. Before you know it 20-30mins go by, and you could have watched an episode of an anime.

If you are into anime, I am. I love it. Anyways.

If we all took the time to do the things we loved during our busy days, we wouldn’t have time anxiety.

Therefore your relationship with time will become healthier. If you wanna do something, do it, and don’t wait until you have “time” to do it. We always have time because it’s not real.
