The only way to create more time is to slow down.

Conversely, Chronos refers to time as it is can be measured and recorded, bought and sold: in months and years, hours and days.  Chronos is a useful tool, but an oppressive master. Today we live compulsively and almost exclusively within the framework of chronos, having nearly forgotten that there is another way to exist—one that is that is far more gracious, and makes space for our internal rhythms.
