For Vbazi, I've tried to create some measures for my language and I want my
units of measure be independant of the other systems

For units of distance, I know that using steps or arms is a good way with an
acceptable imprecision

But my problem is about units of time, there are the year, the moon cycle,
and the day but I don't know what I could use that may be more little than a

I've thought of using hearth rhythm, but that's not precise and too short

Did you already use other things for units of time to avoid the
hour/minutes/second system?
