Are you too busy?
After all, what does too busy look like?
We live in a world of cram packed schedules. Everyone walks around saying they are "busy".
Ever wonder how busy is too busy?
There are a few questions to ask yourself if you can not readily answer this question.
🌪The first question to ask yourself is: Am I feeling anxious and irritable? For me, this is one of the first signs that I am too busy. When I am feeling like this, it means I have been neglecting quiet downtime. Our brains and our bodies need downtime. You are too busy if there is no downtime!
🌪The second observation for you to make is this: Do the people who love you tell you to slow down? If so, you may be too busy.
🌪The third observation to make is this: Am I having difficulty focusing? Our brains cannot handle having too many things on our minds at the same time. It causes clutter in our minds.
🌪What do you do if you think you may be too busy?
🌪The first step is to admit it to yourselves and someone close to you. If this has become your lifestyle, you may need accountability in this area.
🌪Next, turn off your phone and avoid your emails, and do something that refreshes you. Even if its sleep!
🌪Practice building some mindfulness techniques into your life. Deep breathing, meditating, solitude and silence.
