Have you ever wondered what life might be like without clocks? What if your body clock was the only clock you had to get you through your day and through your life?
Could you do it?
What if no one had clocks and you could just eat, sleep and work when you felt the time was right?
Would you freak out?
You would wake up when your body told you to wake up, eat your meals when your body told you that you were hungry, work when your brain was functioning at 100% and felt like working and go to bed when your body told you it was tired.
I kind of visualize retirement being a bit like that...although I know a lot of retired people that lead very structured lives.
I also know a lot of older people that live each day exactly like they lived the day before and any change to their routine causes tremendous frustration.
I am a very structured person with a lot of routines, but I think it's because I have to be. During the week, I have a full time job and my two etsy shops to manage, and on the weekends, I have all of those other things like cleaning the house, doing the laundry and shopping to contend with.
If I didn't have my full time job....would I unconsciously develop other routines and create schedules without realizing I was doing it...out of habit or need for consistency, or would I be able to just "live"? I really enjoy life and try to live it to the fullest. I think in my heart I am a free spirit that could live day by day without a schedule or plans. How about you? Could you? Would you? Do you?
