Take Back Your Time Day

My birthday falls on Take Back Your Time Day, Oct. 24. Appropriate since I believe so much that we should be controlling our time. You can get 50 ideas to celebrate at their web site, including sleep late, cut out one thing in your child’s schedule, cancel something, and hold a brown-bag lunch discussion at work.

The theme this year is Get Back to the Table. About reclaiming family dinner. Do you eat together often as a family? At the table, not on the couch? What do you talk about?

And this fall you can participate in Four Windows of Time. Decide on four periods of time from now until Jan 1 that you will spend doing something slow, quiet and life-renewing.
