By: Blyth, Catherine.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Build + Become.Publisher: London, England : White Lion Publishing, an imprint of The Quarto Group, 2018Copyright date: ©2018Description: 156 pages : illustrations ; 22 cm.Content type: text | still image Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeISBN: 9781781318003 (hardback); 178131800X (hardback).Subject(s): Time | Time -- Philosophy | Time management | Slow life movement | Self-actualization (Psychology)DDC classification: 115 Summary: More often than not we describe ourselves as time-pressured, timed-out, and too busy. While managing time has always been an important challenge, technology's rise, the idea of instant connectivity across time-zones, and the age of expectation all hours, has led to the very concept of time being given a make-over. So what do we mean by time - do we own it? Can we control it? Is it something to 'enjoy'? Starting with how and why we have reached this 'rush-egenic era', 20 lessons guide you through how perception has a massive impact on our sense of time, why responses and language effects our productivity, and, how liberating yourself from time, can in fact mean you use time (and it uses you) in the best way. Starting with the technical, we travel through individual behaviours and attitudes, before looking at the environmental factors that contribute to our day to day, taking in the elements that work for and against us as we 'chase time', before we take on our habits to challenge how we can be inspired to give more time to our day to day. Lastly, we time travel to a place of liberation and look at how to enjoy time. For if time is man's greatest invention, can we not once again reinvent it to better suit our needs?

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:


We are living longer than ever and, thanks to technology, we are able to accomplish so much more. So why do we feel time poor? In 20 eye-opening lessons, Catherine Blyth combines cutting-edge science and psychology to show why time runs away from you, then provides the tools to get it back.

Learn why the clock speeds up just when you wish it would go slow, how your tempo can be manipulated and why we all misuse and miscalculate time. But you can beat the time thieves. Reset your body clock, refurbish your routine, harness momentum and slow down. Not only will time be more enjoyable, but you really will get more done.

Includes bibliographical references.
