Lately I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed. Busy with errands, housework, cooking, work, bills, gym time, yard work, summer planning, the kids’ schools/homework/volunteering, etc., etc., etc. Most of it is fun and I don’t mind any of it, but it’s all too much sometimes. There’s no time to just SIT! We all get so BUSY that we forget to take time out for the things that we really enjoy…and need. Now, about half of the things I listed ARE things I enjoy (yes, yard work an gym time are two!) Something I’ve noticed is that when I finally tell myself that the non-fun things can wait until I’ve had time to sit myself down on my porch swing (sometimes with a glass of wine or a beer) and relax with my family, my mind eases and I’m actually more productive later on. Or at least happier. 🙂
