    I think we have less time for leisure than we had fifty years ago. Those notions of time trigger in me that my time is precious and it is very important to take charge of how I use my time. I made an intentional shift from time poverty to time affluence by intentionally having long periods of every day with no cell phone or other device or televisionturned on that is near me. What helps me be intentional with my time is knowing my time is precious and limited, knowing once time is used it's irretrievably gone, knowing ongoing input and distractions create unrest in me that I don't need, knowing I don't need constant access to others or need to be constantly accessible to others, knowing that I value time used for attention to and access to myself, and knowing I am in control of how I use my time.
