Where Is The Time Going??? (Part II)

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.

Take A DEEP breath and prioritize…

How many times do we look around us, at our list, at our environments and become overwhelmed with everything that needs to be accomplished? This is so true especially for those of us that are type A individuals, who feel that everything has just the right order! Heaven forbid if we as individuals have the faintest hiccup to our order and organization; it’s enough to pull our hair out!!!

I can completely relate; though I do have some type B traits, there are alot of type A traits. Recently my husband and I did an out of state move and between the packing, organizing, managing, creating, establishing, while keeping order of excellence in all areas of my family’s life, it was enough to drive me crazy. I absolutely felt over my head in projects, deadlines, time frames, and was trying to keep my head afloat and screwed out straight without losing my sanity.

Recharging Your Body And How…

It’s late in the afternoon.  Your body begins to become sluggish.  You can’t think clearly.  The simplest things you would normally remember are not so clairvoyant.  You know that you had dinner scheduled, but you cannot remember what you are making.  You meant to fill the juice cup for your child and 20 minutes later it is still not filled.  You knew you had a few tasks to still do for the evening, but forgot to write them down and most likely won’t remember them until the next morning.  Your emotions are high and the least little thing makes you annoyed or agitated.  You dream of going to sleep and laying your head on the pillow, but yet you are a bit disoriented.  Sound familiar?

Getting More Done In Less Time

You are probably looking at the title of this blog and wanting to know how you can be a more productive you in a lot less time.  Seems these days that more and more to do tasks are being put on our laps.  We are literally running the hamster wheel trying to stay on top of life’s demands.  It almost feels as though we are never truly catching up to what is being asked and required of us.  We fall into the trap of striving quite a bit until we become quite unglued and we cannot handle ourselves any longer!  We become our own worst enemy, but the intent was truly good.

The Importance Of Grace

As mamas, sometimes we are on a huge time table.  We look around our homes and see the mess.  Getting up in the mornings, we see everything first that didn’t get done the night before.  The laundry may be exploding out of the hamper and out of the washer and dryer.  The dishes may have piled because they weren’t rinsed the night before.  Last night’s dinner may have forgotten to be put in the fridge.  On the same note, you realize that breakfast has yet to be made for your child and you are not sure what you are going to make.  You may even have a few appointments in the morning and you are wondering if you are going to make it into your office in time or run out the door in time.  Usually when this happens your child has an accident and you have to change the whole outfit OR better yet, you get to the car and realize you left a few items you needed in the house.
