The Busy Trap

Almost everyone I know is busy. "So busy." "Crazy busy ." "Swamped." "Buried." You know how it is. But sometimes I think it's worse for women. We're teetering on the edge as we juggle full-time work schedules, family obligations, household chores, and the increasing pressure to take on more. That might be an unfair observation, I'm not sure. But to be sure there are health risks that go along with being inescapably, terminally busy, including anxiety, depression, memory disorders, and sleep problems. It's hard enough when things are running smoothly, but then whose life does that. We all have emergencies, unexpected situations, and surprises that crop up.

But how do we achieve the balance between work and play and avoid the traffic jams of life.

That's why I'm working on saying no and not offering any explanation to go along with it. I'm determined to become more of a list-maker and keeping track of my to-do efforts. I will spend 15 minutes each day deciding what it is I want to accomplish and therefore identify the priorities of the day and cut out time-wasters.

How about you? What do you do to keep a sense of balance in your life?

Sounds like a great plan, Karyn! When I'm busy, it's entirely on me. Careful planning can cut out a lot of harrowing busyness and reduce the stress. =o)

Careful planning is key, B.E. Sometimes I butt heads with that idea, not sure why. But I'm glad you have things under control!
