The passing of time?

Well I know it has been a long time my beloved friends and family (even the crazy ones!).  One thing that came to mind and it was how do you properly established time in a story?  I know it is a strange question, but are there any particular rules that you followed while writing in order to stay within a certain timeline?

Personally I started to use page count to monitor hours/days passing by.  This however forced me to page count and it took the fun out writing.  Now I just write and let the changes in the environment reflect time passing.  I am also planning to do this using seasons as well. 

So do you all have a certain method/rule/trick that you use to show the passing of time?

Also this week I will be giving out The Liebster Blog award to 5 of my followers!
