It’s easy to fall into the busy trap. Modern life is demanding sure, but it is still your choice.
Committing to less busyness often looks like:
And there is typically an adjustment period where if you aren’t busy, then you feel like you are forgetting something, feel guilty, or other general feeling of unease. That’s normal. You’ll readjust.
1. How are you feeling about your social calendar right now? Is there anything that needs to be adjusted?
2. Which prior work or social commitments do you need to renegotiate? Make a plan for how you’ll renegotiate.
