Need a reality check of what too much work can do….
Too many hours at work and feeling that there is never enough hours leads to anxiety and stress. Stress leads to burn out. Burn out leads to nervous break downs, heart problems, strokes, heart attacks, self-loathing, resentment, rejection, bitterness, an unloving feeling towards self and others, perfectionism, idolatry, etc. Chemically speaking, your hormones can become improperly balanced. The chemicals that make you happy and calm such as Melatonin and Serotonin go down as Cortisol increases and causes negative emotions and reactions to things that would not otherwise normally bother nor effect you in such a way.

Something that has been really weighing on my heart as I have been praying for each of you is working less hours, but making more income.
You know it’s really not your fault, so don’t condemn nor blame yourself. There has been a tremendous pressure I feel our society has put on us to be performance driven; meaning the more hours you work, the more income you will make. We are taught to go after things and income as though these things will make us happy and fulfill us.

1) Invest into yourself by purchasing a planner. Planners can be found at almost any store, including the dollar store.

Planner can be 8.5×11 or a small planner that you keep in your purse or briefcase.
I was thinking about each of you today as I drank my morning cup of tea; especially on my heart were parents of infant through school age children. The mornings can be really tough and brutal for some parents. Sometimes it can almost seem as a physical obstacle just to get through the basic routine and to work on time.

The good news is, you can and there is a way to add those minutes to your time each day. Here are a few tips and strategies that you can apply to achieve this:
