We hear it all the time - you have to live in the moment; you only have now; tomorrow doesn't exist; yesterday is gone, etc., etc. It makes sense to be fully 'present' in the present because how we live in each moment IS our life.


Yet it's somehow one of the hardest things to do. We are constantly pressured to buy more, do more, get more, be more. It feels like we're running out of time to achieve all that we're supposed to achieve.


This desire to have more without really knowing why we want more - mindless consumerism, in other words - leads to horrible side effects for the planet and other people.


This challenge is to put into practice various ways to stop time, live in the moment, and be grateful for all that we already have.


Because who doesn't want more time?


One day, we're all going to kick the bucket. It would be a huge shame to realise you've spent a giant chunk of your life doing things you don't care about with people you don't care about in order to get things you don't care about.


Spending your time working on your relationship with time might be your best use of time yet... 


In the PDF download at the top of the page, there are 25 "time-stopping" practices suggested. The challenge is to attempt each one of them. As none of them take very long, you can always play catch-up and do a few on one day if you've missed some.

Perhaps if we dedicate some of our precious hours to learning how to stop time, we'll find it seems we have more of those hours in the future.




Once you've had your fill of this challenge, pick another! You can find lots of options here. 


Our individual efforts​ won't have much of an impact if there are only a few of us making these changes. The more people we can get involved, the bigger a difference we'll make. Tell a friend or use the buttons below to share this page.
