  10. 10. MASTERY OVER TIME IS BUILT INTO ALL OF THE BIOLOGICAL CLOCKS THAT GOVERN YOUR BODY. IF WE ALLOW THESE NATURAL RHYTHMS TO FUNCTION WITHOUT INTERFERENCE, THEN TIME IS OUR ALLY.HOWEVER, IF WE FORCE OUR OWN LIMITED CONCEPTION OF TIME AND DEADLINES UPON OURSELVES WE DISRUPT THESE RHYTHMS AND BECOME A VICTIM OF TIME. WHATEVER BREAKS DOWN YOUR BODY’S TIMING, CREATES AGING. INVISIBLE FACTORS OF EROSION AND AGING. 1. UNPREDICTABILITY –RANDOM EVENTS DISRUPT YOUR BODY’S RHYTHMS. 2. DISORDER, CONFUSION--A BREAKDOWN OF EXTERNAL ORDER LEADS TO INNER DISORDER. 3. ACCIDENTS –MISTAKES IN YOUR LIFE LEAD TO MISTAKE IN YOUR BODY. 4. TRAUMA, SICKNESS--WHEN WOUNDED, YOUR BODY LOSES TRACK OF TIME. 5. VIOLENCE –WHEN ATTACKED, YOUR BODY’S TIMING IS SHATTERED. 6. CHAOS --WHEN ALL SENSE OF ORDER IS DESTROYED, YOUR BODY CANNOT MANAGE TIME AT ALL. MAKING TIME YOUR ALLY1. KEEP REGULAR HOURS, EAT AND SLEEP ON A REGULAR SCHEDULE. 2. AVOID DRASTIC CHANGES IN DIET AND ACTIVITY. 3. SET UP AN ORDERLY WORK ENVIRONMENT. REDUCE DISTRACTIONS. 4. REST QUIETLY ONCE TO TWICE DURING THE DAY TO LET OUR BODY RETUNE ITSELF. 5. TAKE YOURSELF OUT OF STRESSFUL SITUATIONS SOONER RATHER THAN LATER. 6. TAKE YOUR TIME; DON’T RUSH. 7. MAKE DECISIONS WHEN THEY ARISE. DON’T PROCRASTINATE OR GET DISTRACTED. 8. PROTECT YOURSELF , AVOID THE TEMPTATION TO PLUNGE INTO HIGH-RISK SITUATIONS. 9. PUT YOUR HOUSE AND FINANCES IN ORDER. 10. ADDRESS UNDERLYING ANXIETY AND UNDERLYING ANGER. LEARN TO DOTHIS WITHOUT LOSING CONTROL ORHURTING OTHERS. 11. BECOME MORE RESILIENT EMOTIONALLY. 12. LIVE AS IF YOU HAVE ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD.
