Do you ask yourself some of the big questions about being busy & balance? Why is busyness glorified? Why do so many insist on wearing busyness as a badge of honour? Why do we hold ourselves to such impossibly high standards?
I recently listened to a podcast hosted by Mia Freedman of Mama Mia fame, where she mentioned that she has amazing low standards for her life. Things like having friends over for dinner & having burgers on the menu. Not a homemade extravaganza, but take away burgers. I have to state now - I love this woman!
Now, for us mere mortals, we too can take the pressure off ourselves. If you're keen to ditch the overwhelm and get off that busyness hamster wheel, try these tips:
Firstly, ban the “busy”. When you’re asked how your day is going, don’t automatically reply with “busy”. Using words like “busy”, “hectic and “crazy” can actually make you feel more overwhelmed! Change your language and watch what happens!
