I keep talking about how crazy busy life is and about how much anxiety I have over everything — especially these next few months.
Yet I haven’t given myself a second to breathe, or to truly be present.
I am putting all of this pressure on myself to do it all — work 50 + hour work weeks, keep up on housework, keep up on reading (books + blogs), fit in some exercise, prep for Baby L — and I just can’t keep up with it. There. I said it.
So these next couple of weeks I’m going to slow down. I’m going to take a deep breath, focus on what’s in front of me on that particular day, and come back refreshed and a little less stressed.
This means more yoga + more time coming out from behind my computer + more time with family and friends.
So things may not be as active around here or on twitter. I’ll still be here, but I won’t be over-indulging in these vices.
Have you ever had to remind yourself to slow down and really take in everything around you?
