Embracing The Present


Conquering Time Anxiety as We Step into a New Season

As the sun sets on the blissful days of summer, we find ourselves on the precipice of a new season. The end of summer marks a period of transition, where carefree days give way to the bustling routines of school and work. For many of us, this change can stir up a mix of emotions, and one prevalent feeling that often sneaks into our minds is time anxiety.

The Perils of Time Anxiety

Time anxiety, a phenomenon affecting millions across the globe, is a relentless worry about the passing of time and the fear of not making the most of it. As the pace of life quickens and responsibilities pile up, we may find ourselves overwhelmed by the weight of deadlines, schedules, and unending to-do lists. As students, parents, employees, and individuals striving to make a difference, the desire to seize every moment can become an exhausting pursuit.

The Illusion of Perfection

In the age of social media, we are constantly bombarded with images of perfection, of people seemingly making the most out of every second. It’s essential to recognize that these snapshots do not reflect reality. The pressure to measure up to these ideals can exacerbate our time anxiety, causing us to question if we are doing enough, being enough, and living enough.

Embracing the Present

As we step into this new season, let us embrace the power of the present moment. Instead of being consumed by the past or the future, we can find contentment by being fully immersed in the now. Savor the last rays of summer, the laughter of friends, and the excitement of new beginnings. Recognize that it’s okay not to have every minute planned out. Some of the most beautiful moments are the ones that are unplanned and spontaneous.

Setting Realistic Goals

Setting goals is a vital aspect of personal growth and development. However, it’s crucial to set realistic and achievable objectives. Instead of trying to cram endless tasks into our schedules, let’s prioritize what truly matters. By focusing on a few essential tasks, we can dedicate more time and energy to each, resulting in greater fulfillment and success.

Practicing Mindfulness

Mindfulness offers a powerful tool to combat time anxiety. By being mindful, we cultivate awareness of our thoughts and feelings without judgment, allowing us to detach from anxious thoughts about the future or regrets from the past. Take a few moments each day to practice mindfulness, whether through meditation, journaling, or simply pausing to appreciate the world around you.

Seeking Support

Remember that you are not alone in your feelings of time anxiety. Reach out to friends, family, or colleagues who may share similar worries.  Open conversations about these emotions can lead to a sense of relief, knowing that others also experience such concerns.  Moreover, consider seeking professional help from counselors or therapists if your time anxiety feels overwhelming or begins to interfere significantly with your daily life.


As we approach the end of summer and the beginning of a new chapter, let’s cast away the shackles of time anxiety. Embrace the present, set realistic goals, and practice mindfulness to find peace and fulfilment in every moment. Remember, you have the power to shape your experience and create a life that is meaningful and joyful.

In the end, life’s journey is not about racing against time but about cherishing each step along the way. So, let’s step into this new season with courage, resilience, and a commitment to savouring every second.
