“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing. A schedule defends from chaos and whim. It is a net for catching days. It is a scaffolding on which a worker can stand and labor with both hands at sections of time. A schedule is a mock-up of reason and order—willed, faked, and so brought into being; it is a peace and a haven set into the wreck of time; it is a lifeboat on which you find yourself, decades later, still living.”
― Annie Dillard,
Living slowly doesn’t mean completely ditching a schedule and not ever keeping track of time. It took me some time to figure this out. Actually, creating a daily schedule that is broken down by the hour is what allows me to be 1o0% focused on what I am doing in the moment, and this is what slow living means to me; being totally present with the task at hand and completing that task with a focused intention. Doing so has added a deeper sense of fulfillment, satisfaction, and happiness to my life.

I really love this wrist watch. The Swedish wood is lightweight and comfortable compared to a metal-banded watch and the tones and grain are beautiful. It is definitely one of my statement pieces because of its large face and unique two-tone design. It makes me feel like I am getting back to the elements. Be sure to check out the full women’s collection, and don’t forget to enter the contest. Even if you don’t win the full $75 e-gift, you will still get a $20 e-gift towards their collection just for entering.
