A great little tip

Here's a little tip for a happier, healthier day
  It could depend precisely on the words you choose to say

Ask about waking up with "What time?"
  Your answer's a number---at 6 o'clock's chime

But if instead, you just ask 'When?"
  You may get up naturally, whenever sleep ends

Wonder a bit later, "What time is lunch?"
  You'll likely feel compelled to munch a bunch 

Yet if you couch 'hungry' in terms of "When"
  You're unlikely to eat a meal for ten

And so it goes throughout the day
  Take your focus off the clock; keep it far away...

I'd write more about this great little tip, but OMG
  It's 2:00, time to hit the pool for my afternoon dip

Hilarious that the only time you care about is "time to play in the pool" time!

Great advice Gershon, since I retired I rarely go by the clock, before retiring I lived by it. Tom.

Ha, ha. Thanks for the foreshadowing, Tom: Sounds like I'm about ready to hang it up myself, as I rarely go by the clock anymore. Here's to stepping outside of time and living life! Best wishes, Gershon

I love the hilariously hypocritical ending to this poem, Gershon! It made me smile.

Ha! I am guilty of clock-watching and I must admit it and I should spend more time without it. Well penned.
