Are you too busy?
Do you have way too many demands on your day and time? Are you putting everyone else’s needs before yours? Do you feel like you put yourself on the back burner all the time?
Signs that You Are Too Busy
In the video below that I did Live on Facebook, I describe 10 signs that you really are too busy. Watch and comment below if you can relate to any of these or most of them like I did a few years back.
There was a time in my life where I felt like the spinning plate lady in the circus. I had so many things to juggle and keep going and I was afraid to drop any of them. I hated that I couldn’t give my all to everything. And it really wasn’t like me to let things slip. But they did because I just couldn’t do everything.
The Tipping Point
The trick is to not get to that tipping point. You know, the point where you break down and cry. You just can’t take it anymore.
Instead, recognize that you have some of these signs and do something about it.
What to Do….
Start saying NO.
You can’t take more on, you have enough on your plate.
Push some tasks off to others at work. Give some chores to your kids. Hire someone to help with household chores (cleaning, laundry, meal prep). It’s ok to have someone help you with tasks. Save the really important areas for you, like quality time with your kids <3
Plan & Prioritize.
Get into a habit of first thing each morning of planning out your day on paper or on your phone. Don’t make the To Do List a brain dump of everything, rather make it a list of what you can reasonably get done in the day. And then prioritize the items so to be sure you get the most important things done each day. And don’t be afford to make 2 lists… one for work and one for your home/personal life. Add some fun and exercise in there too!
