Time has been slipping off my fingers, as if I would be needing 30 hours a day to balance my life between work, family and friends. I’m always running late, I’m always the one to say “wait, let me finish this first”, I’m always the one who still have my phone on hand checking emails or drawing sketches when I’m on my bus or train ride, I’m always non-stop working.
I discovered that I can’t really change my current lifestyle (and hiring someone to do my job won’t make my job anyway easier), the workload is endless, and my to-do reminder list will never be empty. This is where I start to overlap my schedule with my leisure time. Walking my dog when I’m out to snap my outfit, drinking with my boyfriend when we are in cocktail events and parties, hanging out with friends in between meetings, or even during dance class. I’m sure you get what I mean. This is where I find joy in my life (take my recent visit to Disneyland as an example, where it happened at the beginning as a Pandora event). It might not be the best solution for what you define as a “healthy life”, but think it at the other side of the box, I’d describe it as ‘efficiency’. So here’s the thing: if you can’t buy time, steal it.
Then this little gift delivered to my studio the other day. Tick-tok, tick-tok. For how many months since I last hear the ticking sound of a watch or a clock? I’ve been reading time through my iPhone ever since I start having one. The LUKIA collection form SEIKO is an elegant piece to put on. Surrounded by my favourite, rose gold rim, I like how it puts a touch of contemporary aesthetics within its classic design. Wearing a watch doesn’t makes your life any easier, yet it has a mental impact on improving your time management— at least I’m feeling it.
Even though I’m still learning the tricks to steal time, at least there’a a hardware on my wrist to remind me of what needs to be done next.
