So...can you wake up ten or fifteen minutes early? Or go to bed ten or fifteen minutes later? Is there time spent doing thigns like playing video games or watching TV that you could cut into for some quality religious time? You can meditate on the earth which provides your food and water while cooking dinner. When you take the trash out, take a minute to look up at the sky. Maybe keep a book on you to read a bit of when you're waiting in line at the grocery store/bank/whatever. When you're sitting in traffic, take a minute to greet the gods. On your lunch break, go outside, offer some water to a tree or plant or pour it as a libation to the gods of your choice. You say that when you have free time, your body screams for rest...have you tried meditation at this time instead of just plonking down and going to sleep?

There are lots of little ways to sneak in religious practice. You just need to find them.



I totally agree with this. I found my time to study my religion while going on the bus to the university. If you need it, you can make some sort of "daily organizer", taking a few minutes every day to do your meditation, reading or whatever you want to do.
