I think it’s very important to purge things from your life that complicate it. Are you always SOOO busy? It’s easy not to be, just say NO! You don’t have to do all that extra stuff. Your kids don’t need to do 12 activities a week. You don’t need to be over scheduled. You can decide what you want in your life or not.
Even if you are working full-time, you can still decide what you need and want to do with your life. You can simplify meals, have a morning and evening routine, declutter so there’s less to take care of and slow down.
I think in our crazy world we need to step back and put into focus what is important.
Family time is important.
Time for yourself is important.
Time for your relationship is important.
One thing I learned from having cancer, is to slow down, do what only was essential. When you’re on chemo, you just don’t have the energy to do everything you used to. It’s a great lesson in some things just aren’t that important and they can either wait to be done or just nixed. Now that on still on my drug-free time( chemo that is), I still prioritize what I want to do each day. I never take on more than I want to in a day. I usually list what I need to do in the morning and then if I can’t finish that, I just look at whether I want to do it tomorrow or not.
Try and be less busy, it’s good for you and probably your family too.
Take time to enjoy nature.
