If you wake up in the morning, make yourself a cup of tea, eat a banana, and then start in on a bag of chips….does that signal a problem?
If so, then I must have a problem…
…because it’s before 10AM and I’ve just had all the calories and sodium required for an entire day. Oops! At least they were baked.
This past week has been all work and no play. I thought about sending Buster to work in my place one day. Although he can totally rock a briefcase, he’s hasn’t learned how to do my job. He’d just lay around on the desk and waste time. With those skills, maybe he could work for the federal government.
A person only has so much energy and brain power to give in a week and when it’s all spent….bad choices can start to set in (like chips for breakfast).
Usually, I feel pretty fabulous. But this week, not so much. If you get this way too…if you sometimes feel like the world is closing in on you…like you’re only a shadow of yourself…
1. Be realistic about your capacity for “super-human-ness.”
2. Realize that it’s better to do fewer things right that everything wrong.
3. Prioritize your time, including your own personal needs. Never put yourself last on the list. It’s not about being selfish. It’s about giving yourself what you need to be the best version of yourself, so that when you give to your family…your job…your friends…you are giving them the fabulous you.
I’m heading out for a walk…to work off a bag of chips. Whooo Ah!
Do often feel pressed for time? How do you deal with it?
