Do you use the B word?
I can’t come to they gym I’m too Busy. The boss is here take this and look Busy. I have so much going on I’m just so Busy all the time.
This word is becoming like nails on the chalkboard to me. If it were important you would make time for it, that’s really all there is to it. Now don’t get me wrong you can’t make time for everything, I mean that’s what got you into this busy cycle in the first place. It seems in this hustle to do everything world we have forgotten how to politely say No (this could be a whole post on it’s own) so we have subbed “I”m sorry I’m just too busy.” If you are one of the busy people I challenge you to take a hard look at how much you’re really getting done being so busy. How many hours a day are you watching cat videos or reading all the mindless memes on Facebook. Is there time to binge watch the latest season on Netflix but no time to go to dinner with an old friend who may need to talk? Are you too busy to make time for yourself? When is the last time you checked in with yourself whether it be a quite room, a moment spent with a barbell or, if you’re one of those people, a long run.
Take this week and see if there is a way to be less busy and make time for the important things in life. Make time for you, your health and your sanity. Everyone around you will thank you for it.
