Three Forms of Time Anxiety

For us to be able to manage the eerie feeling of never having enough time we must know the three different forms it can manifest as:

  1. Daily Time Anxiety: the feeling of never having enough time in your day.
  2. Future Time Anxiety: dwelling on the “what ifs?”
  3. Existential Time Anxiety: the sense that you only have a limited amount of time in your life, and that it’s slipping away.

All three forms are valid and we must learn to soothe our anxieties ourselves because it's not like someone will be able to soothe them for us all of the time.

How to fight the feeling there’s never enough time

  1. Create a schedule that serves your goals. Whether you want to put more time in your body, mind, in love, for work, money, or play, keeping a balanced schedule is a healthy way to see what is important to you.
  2. Eliminate distractions. If you spend hours on end on social media just mindlessly scrolling, you won't be able to finish the things you need to do with this.
  3. Don't do everything by yourself. Learn how to delegate tasks, saying "no," and maximizing the value of your time.
